You may be thinking of "Freddie the Fox" at Delta. He was a very annoying creature, and someone eventually abducted him from his den in a flight bag. The CP arranged Freddie's release, on condition that he never fly again.

Just log into our next All Pilot Conference Call. He takes over the show all the time, every time.

"Our next call is from Xxxxxxx Xxxxxxxx, go ahead with you question"

Who's the tool:

The captain for giving all the passengers my first and last name?

Or me for telling the captain I don't like my first and last name told to all the passengers?

speaking of that time, there was a CLE Captain that always wanted to be right and argue against you. Complete tool of tools. But what was fun, you could get him to argue against himself on the next trip.
My opinions may have changed, but not the fact I"m right.

I always roll my eyes when the captain starts off by saying.."at the academy..." or " I was a navy seal"....I don't care. Please shut the f up.

How about the new hire FO that welcomes Ground Control aboard, tells them the weather at Destination and thanks them for flying xxx Airlines? Twice in one day! Not sure there's a toolbox big enough for me...

Heard it at least once a week whilst flying in Euroland from US carrier pilots heading west bound. We were lucky if they were transmitting on guard so they would not tie up busy London Control's frequency. Very entertaining though.

I can remember a F/O who referred to the as "The Squadron". Would always where the nomex gloves in the cockpit. Captain Nomex. Loved that third wire on landings. Left a bottle of KY on the pedestal to go along with his nomex one day. Never did say thank you though.
