I'm a Delta gold and travel on Company paid tickets. Even so, I always check in with the Captain (usually before he gets in the jet) just to let him know there's a qualified ABP in the back. I also let the F/As know my seat assignment in case they need any assistance.

Yeah, filing a customer complaint probably probably isn't a good idea in that case. Guy's still a douche, though.

You're not that important. I'd rather you not interrupt my pre-push chill time, but even if you do I'll still welcome you with open arms

I once flew with a furloughed US guy who kept his hat on all the way to cruise alt. Then has asked if I thought it would be OK if he took his hat off now? I said "um, ok..."

Off came the hat, the dude had a pony-tail down to his arse. We actually had some good times as the line bid paired us up routinely.

Default Flying the barber pole

More of a pet peeve. My USAFR brethren who find themselves with extra gas coming back from a Europe TDY and decide to fly the barber pole for 7 hours on the NATS because nobody is stopping them. Dude, you’re saving like 15 minutes and burning 12,000 extra pounds of gas. You’re not maverick, it’s bad for the environment, and guess who’s paying for it? YOUR tax dollars.
