Well, at every airport I've flown into and out of, large and small, if there is no KCM line, or it's closed and the working crews have to go through normal security, TSA (or their counterparts in other countries) has always waved us to the front of the line, and made room for us at the front of the conveyor belt. So you would "destroy" a working crew's "stuff" after TSA directed the crew ahead of you? LOL, ok. Sure you would.

Non-revs in uniform are a different matter, of course. Get in line with everyone else.

You are going to look interesting face down in handcuffs after you start destroying stuff at a TSA checkpoint. Your airline career is over at that point.

Wait. So if a guy is trying to get on with DAL, thatís a reason then not to politely call out this DALís pilot actions against a passenger? No job should be worth having to violate your own personal integrity and sense of doing what is right. News flash, there are some d-bag DAL pilots (esp in ATL for some reason).

Who knows... more brown noses than tissues to go around... what’s your opinion of conciliatory words?

I donít know. Though to be fair, I donít think I would have called out the pilot in front of the pax, and I too would have apologized to the fellow pax for the behavior of someone who is a colleague in my profession.

You're a smug little p[umpkin] that I am sure has been the tool of the day to many other pilots.

Sure... go ahead... apologize for a colleague’s inappropriate behaviour. Go ahead, be a sheep. You’re nothing short of an enabler, brown noser and a subscriber of the Stockholm Syndrome. Make sure you’ve got enough tissues in your flight bag. Nothing worse than showing up to work with that brown spot off your nose. I’ve never had any issue calling anyone be they in uniform or not when showing such disdain to another... especially a pax.

At the end of the day... those passengers are the sponsors who make your pay check possible... who are entitled to simple respect...

I would have apologized to the passenger as well, Captjns. As you pointed out, THEY are the reason we get a big paycheck.
