I bet it annoys you even more when they give it to us.

I bet you’re a blast on a 4 day.
The other 10% get dinner and drinks paid for. You probably don’t fall in that group though.

I found a good one on the Frontier board -

With the talk of Moxy getting a lot of there pilots from Silver I’m wondering whether I should stay put or now go to Frontier now that they’ve got a great contract. Lot of people think Frontier could be great now that your not working for dear pellets lol

Pros for Moxy - Great seniority early, fun culture
Cons - Don’t know where bases are yet

Pros for Frontier - Denver and Orlando bases
Cons for Frontier - Airbus

I would be lucky to get 6 minutes on a transcon, with getting direct to the airport.

Certainly doesn’t bother me. But a direct routing isn’t always best based on winds. But maybe on your short sectors it can shave seconds off a flight.

What also is annoying in the busy sectors is when the Southwest guys check in with “ southwest xxx with you at three five ooooooooo, getting a bit of chop how are rides ahead, looking for direct down the road and how y’all doin today?”

CPDLC domestic can’t come along soon enough.

I won’t even mention the Southwest crews at the Manhattan hotel.

As you’re obviously the model Non-TOTD on APC... explain how one’s hobby/side business personally effects you??? or is it that he’s your competitor?

It doesn’t. I’m projecting. Anyone with Captain their “handle” is probably isn’t happy unless they’re doing .78 with their hair on fire. If we fly together and I ask for a wind check on final, are you going to debrief the flight while the hotel shuttle drives off into the sunset without us and give me a lecture on how we already have the atis and a wind check is unnecessary?
