I don’t understand the reasoning of making the NTSB’s job harder than it needs to be. They’re not the enemy.

Default Jumpseat Police

This AA CA who publicly berated a pass-traveling regional pilot (who flies for AE), because he didn’t ask him for a Jumpseat.

Kudos to the regional guy, who stayed calm and collected, while trying to educate this CA who was about to have an aneurysm.

What kind of bubble does this guy live in that he doesn’t know who flies for his company and who gets pass travel. If his ignorance doesn’t force him into retirement, maybe a heart attack will.

Not enough info to pass judgment as to the full education the jump seater trying to provide. Was this first hand, or passed along by the Circle K cashier?

You’re underlying suggestions for a causal into retirement or into a grave gives light for a nomination for TOTD.

This happens entirely too often. When you say "I'm with PSA" and they respond with "PSA, we are PSA. PSA have existed in years." You know you're in for an earful.

Once had an AA guy come out of the jump seat he reserved and have me thrown out of my first class seat I was assigned and then up to the jump seat... Where I was lectured about asking for a ride... What the hell.

I heard E190 pilots at AA get asked by certain some others at AA, “when you applying to mainline?”

In 8.5 years at the regionals, I have seen this first hand when I was on a positive space. It's rare but it happens.

If I was on a positive space I’d laugh in the guys face. No way I’d put up with that. I’d hope he would kick me off for not asking permission to use my ticket....

I, a regional pilot, had a DH on AA one time and as I got off and was walking up the jet bridge the captain yelled up for me and asked if I was jumpseat if. I could tell he was getting ready to let loose but he just crawled back into the plane after I told him I was just a DH

I'll save you the time and tell you exactly what happened. The Captain received some inaccurate information from the gate agent or flight attendant and he/she is one of those types who flies off the handle pretty easily without knowing the whole story or getting both sides. I can almost guarantee you that the FOs and FAs dread working with this Captain.
