Often different hotels, and different show times these days.

Good Captains still do that.

Amen. Unless different hotels or some other special reason.

I can understand if the van is for hire.
You're worthless as a leader, everyone here realizes that.

Plenty of reasons for waiting, you obviously possess a limited mental reasoning as to why.

No use in explaining, I'll just laugh with the FA's while discussing your ilk's leadership skills on the next flights.

Don't feel bad, plenty of small shoes for your type to fill.

What does getting to the hotel have anything to do with "leadership"?

Plenty, if you have a Russian or Nigerian cab driver. (No show limo)

Well, if the cabin and cockpit crew are BOTH staying at the same hotel, then the normal, polite thing to do is go together - like a crew. The impression you give if you leave them is, “Screw you. I can’t and won’t wait. You’re on your own.”, which certainly does NOT subscribe to the “we’re in this together” CREW mentality, and says everything about your leadership ability - and not in a good way.

In 27 years in the airline business, in the above situation, I’ve NEVER ditched a cabin crew heading to the same hotel because I couldn’t wait the extra 7-10 minutes.

I’ll also say this: if a captain ever suggested this, I’d politely tell him that I’m waiting, and I’d wave him goodby as he left to take the van to the hotel, alone.

THIS!!!

The only excuses for ditching the crew are staying at a different hotel, being on short rest or if you take your own transportation to the hotel.
