I can almost guarantee you that the FOs and FAs dread working with this Captain.
Exasperated "Where the **** is this guy going?!" talking about another airplane taxiing normally

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.

I think I’ve deadheaded on one of this guys flights. As I’m settling into my comfy middle seat in steerage, El Capitan comes on back to give me an earful about not checking in with him to ask for a ride even though I was a space positive DH. I just don’t really give a **** anymore and always stop by the flight deck even though 99% of the time I get the “why are you bothering me?” look.

I'm a little unclear on what your status was. Were you jumpseating? If you're jumpseating, even though you may have been given a boarding pass with an assigned seat, the etiquette is that you introduce yourself to the crew and request to jumpseat.

I'd ask for his name and file a complaint. There's absolutely no reason to treat a paying customer this way.

He said he was a positive space DH.

Actually, he didn't say that at all. Here's what he posted:

Nothing about positive space. All he said was he was assigned a seat.

Woops. I was reading everyone else's posts talking about it being a positive space DH and just assumed that's what he had said I guess. Sorry!

If you are listed for the JS and are assigned a seat in the back, you definitely still need to check in with the captain (except maybe not on Delta, but I still do anyway just to be safe). Positive space, not so much.

The best ones are the guys that yell at Netjets or FedEx guys on a full fare, positive space ticket. They’re usually Platinum level too. Yes, that has happened.

This happened several years ago. I wasn’t a “paying” passenger, just a regional pilot deadheading on a mainline flight.

I qualify for one of the above. I welcome Capt doosh to try that on me. I will probably ignore him while ordering a cocktail.
