Please, gender neutral pronouns.

Implying that women might be tools would be misogyny.

No, but a man asserting how a woman would/could/should feel about a hypothetical certainly is.

Implying that a woman isn’t smart enough to be misogynistic, is in fact, misogynistic by yourself.

I'll add the guys/gals who verbalize the assigned altitude/heading/airspeed they just set on the panel while I'm in the middle of reading the clearance back to ATC. Gimme a second and we can verify it when the mic isn't keyed.

Maybe not toolish, but distracting to say the least.

Why are you even listening to the ground crew at that point?
I used to toggle it off until I finished calling for push.


But that's just me. Never found any captain to be a tool for talking on a freq I wasn't listening to.

Sounds like a nice feature, does it come with autothrottles and RNP?

Ya know youre right, a CA has never read back a clearance to tug driver incorrectly. You are very smart.

Sorry but if you don’t like CAs dictating their pace, probably should have not went to DAL.
Guess I shoulda went Spirit?
