The Frontier guy ...who yelled up to the cockpit last night saying thanks for the ride.
Me...When the captain coming out of the bathroom asked, “so how do you know that guy”...huh I thought you spoke to him up in the gate area.

Cmon guys...

Seems more and more common to have a jumpseater tell me he’s riding with us than ask for a ride anymore.

exactly!

I fly for one carrier, but have flight benefits through my wife on another. I commute on the other carrier sometimes in uniform and will say thanks for the ride as I walk off assuming the pilots are standing up front. Everyone is so quick to assume there's a jumpseater not checking in with them.

Spirit buys us full fare tickets on other airlines all the time. I always say hi just to avoid the Larry David moment getting off.

Don't know why people make a fuss if someone came up and said hello when they have a seat in the back. I prefer it.

I travel for the military. On full-fare government tickets. Sometimes I buy tickets for personal travel. I bring my airline rollaboard, because it has all my stuff in it. I've been harassed for not checking in with the crew, and once even wrote a complaint about a DAL tool while traveling as a platinum miler.

If you're worried about policing non-compliant jumpseaters, check with the gate first to see if you actually have a JSer.
