Divide and rule, in politics, sociology, and economics: a strategy to gain or maintain power.

So Orwellian... 1984 comes to mind with the above observation. Take charge of your career and destiny and not the airline taking control of your future.

Granted, I was not with a whole crew, so I can see how the optics might support his conclusion. His tactics were undesirable, to say the least.

I think I met this Guy. Under similar circumstances. Young, hair gel, smug and obviously a former astronaut, now gracing the cockpit of a Embraer. Called me out on a full fare ticket in S Fl. Not in uniform. Platinum status. I reminded him and said thanks again for the safe flight over my shoulder. Deuces Captain Cosmonaut.

Ever have a captain that wonít stop whistling even after you ask him to stop? Who the hell wants to listen to non-stop whistling at work? What the hell is wrong with this guy?

OK, You've piqued my curiosity here, how did he even know to "call you out" if you were on a paid ticket and not in uniform?

Still shaking my head at the attitude that a paying passenger, whether in uniform or not, has some obligation to check in with the cockpit crew.

Hmmm, good point. I don't use such adornments, so that didn't occur to me.
