The FAA has no compelling interest nor jurisdiction at that point.
The FAA does have a vested interest that crewmembers are in compliance, with their duties and responsibilities, I/A/W the Company’s GOM. Conversely, while not mandatory, unless so stated in the GOM, its up to the Captain, if they so desire, to ensure the rest of the crew is provided for. Personally, I’m the last one of the jet, boarding the crew van, and to check in at the hotel. Those new to the airline, or the industry observe my interaction with the cabin crew line training. Consideration, which does go both ways for the most part, goes a long way... that’s all. Nothing to get one’s knickers in a twist... wouldn’t you agree A Squared?

Uh-huh, but as far as the FAA is concerned, their duties and responsibilities have ended when they are walking away from the airplane.



Suppose that an Airline submitted a GOM to the FAA which contained the statement that once the crew had left the airplane in accordance with their duties and responsibilities, the individuals were on their own recognizance as adults, and the captain had no authority over, or responsibility to them.



What possible basis would the FAA have for objection to that? What jurisdiction would the FAA even have for dictating internal HR policies during times when the crew is not operating the airplane?

That hotel has gone downhill fast. That said, sorry to hear about that. Itís such a shame that many will try and do anything to help offline pilots, while a few just **** all that effort away.

Cut them some slack. Maybe they got surprised with the stop when 99% of the RJ's usually pull away at +30kts driving like those little cars in a Shriner's parade.

I was taxiing in ORD once, and saw an AA737 hauliní serious ass towards the intersection. I stoped, but my FO was trying to give me crap for stopping in ORD. He got a few words out when that 737 burned through the intersection like nobody else was around. At that point I calmly looked at the FO and told him that had I listened to him we might be on the news. Now thatís some TOTD stuff
