Had a Frontier captain JS with us recently. He waited for a good time to get our attention and not interrupt anything. Starts with the usual "Captain, I'm so and so... " shakes his hand. I turn to greet him as well, but he doesn't even once look at me, acknowledge my presence, or anything. Had me thinking you're one of those people I've read about. Hey man, FOs are people too lol

Thatís why as a Captain you introduce the FO to the jumpseater.

Nope, this actually happened. And thanks Iíll consider myself called out. What happened has nothing to do with United except for the fact he was a United captain. Iím sorry you took this as a United bashing story because thatís not what it was. Every company has their old balls and this guy happened to be one that day. Come on over maybe a hug will make you feel better.

Itís not exactly unheard of for some clueless mainline pilot to be extraordinary condescending to a regional pilot. I certainly encountered that a time or two.

Yeah... Iíve met maineline guys who had never heard of their WO regionals by name. Who will complain two minutes later how the express carrier is stealing their job security.

But itís an extreme minority of the population so there is that.

In the end, just about every pilot there is going to eventually be working for one of the big ones, so who really cares.

That annoy me just as much as when, after introducing myself to the CA and asking for a ride. I'll turn to the FO to shake his/her hand but they never turn around to acknowledge that I'm there.
