I know you're kidding, but i think tons of us say "my captain/fo" under other circumstances.

You better address me as your Captain.

Whose bigger picture, yours or theirs?

To the UAL pilot jumpseating (LAS-DEN) this weekend in his F-Teener jumpsuit with “AirBoss” emblazoned all over it.

Tells gate agent he “must” board early to speak with the captain and then proceeds to tell the crew he “will” be riding with us and sitting in the back. In 35 years of flying this douche bag takes the cake as far as jumpseaters go. Must be auditioning for Top Gun II. Frigging jerk!

Seems like the proper response is: "I'm sorry sir, your attire doesn't meet our dress code for jumpseaters"

Ha, sounds like how a few mainline guys act towards us regional pilots when "asking" for a ride. Could fill up a thread with those stories too.

A guy shows up in a military flight suit to jumpseat and you let him ride?..... and then complain about it on tool of the day. The irony.

The DL jumpseater I had to deny due to weight and balance on the 200. Worked numbers for 15 min and even re worked the fuel load with dispatch to see if we could get him on. When it didn’t work out he decided to get an attitude with me because he’s “been doing this for 20 years.”
