The GoJets captain (ironic, I know) who berated another pilot this morning on a flight my wife and I were on.

We're coming down the jetway and Captain Douschebag is standing in the cockpit door welcoming people onboard. Ok, nice touch. A guy probably five people in front of us, in uniform, says hello to him then walks on by. Captain waits for a few more people to go by then cuts into the line, walks back to where the other pilot is sitting down, and loudly says "Nice of you to jumpseat on my airplane without asking my permission."

To which the pilot calmly reaches into his shirt pocket, pulls out his boarding pass, and says "I'm a revenue passenger."

HAHA gojetz LOL, I love when they come to say hi to the Captain and I just turn around and murmor under my breath piece of ****, just loud enough for them to hear.

I love it even more when they are up front and the captain says oh no the jumpseat is not open to you, that makes my day.

Re cockpit lighting: Flying around the carrier at night rapidly creates the ingrained habit of darkening the cockpit lighting as much as possible. Also, generally seems very counter intuitive to have lighting so high that you only see reflections of inside of cockpit when you look outside. Managed to get over my old Navy lighting habits flying international, where a fully lighted cockpit helps alertness, and there is virtually no visual traffic to be seen...just watch the fish-finder and make sure everything says + or - thousands of feet. I still prefer a darkened cockpit enroute flying domestic...but right now I'm not worried about all that.....I'm afraid that baring my aviation soul against the grain on this issue will make me appear to be a "tool". Does fear of being a tool automatically make one a tool? I know I would be a tool if I talked about how ridiculously "fun?" flying around the ship is at night, and how I would gladly spend 24 hrs in total darkness to night-adapt if I though it would give me a 1% advantage on night landings,.......now I really sense myself teetering on the abyss of tooldom....
