The UAL pilot who jumpseated on my flight, didn't check in with me, my f/o, or my f/a, and I didn't know he was on there until after we deplaned at the destination.

Sure he was jumping? Sometimes OAL pilots in uni are just using their bennies from a spouse, etc or are on a paid for ticket by their company or even bought one themselves.

If jumping OAL of course you should always say hi and ASK for a ride.

Today on my DH flight...
The pilot does his spiel on the PA with arrival time and blah blah. I was listening to music with headphones and reading a book. A pax next to me taps me on my shoulder and asks me "what time did he say we are going to arrive?"

How about putting on makeup, texting, or yacking on the mobile, drinking coffee and smoking a ciggy all while barrelling through town at 50MPH during stop and go traffic too!

Had a dumb a$$ Jungle Jet Ace of the Base (and Ace is spelled with two S's) type stop me while deplaning the other day in RDU. I always travel in my monkey suit... Easier passing through security overseas.

After the first sentence out of Junior's mouth, I presented, for his purusal, assuming at least ELP 4 proficient, both my boarding pass, and e-ticket receipt indicating full fair... not even ZED.

To which I told him perhaps it is he who should be thanking me for making his paycheck possible.

After a half way round the world flight to get home, I'm not very sociable. but I do thank the crew for a good ride when I get off the jet.
