I didn't know them. Not sure what you mean by someone you can "probably" say something like that too. I didn't just throw it out there. I am in no mood to be insulted and snapped back at the passenger to make it clear i will not sit there and listen to her crap. Revenue passenger or not i WILL tell someone to shut their mouth if they start talking to me like that. If you guys want to sit there and take it because you are in uniform or representing your airline thats fine. But i didnt' spend money on a seat to listen to some old hag tell me how she feels. I feel bad for her husband because he has to wake up to that nasty face every day.

I thought you said you were a non-rev? Or did you pay some money for a buddy pass or something?

His stories change constantly, at least he admitted to wanting to be a lifer at a regional. Sounds like RAH hired him so you don't have to worry about sharing a mainline flighdeck for 4 days.

Ah, so IOW in addition to faking it, you're doubling down by embellishing in front of all of us. Not buying it, but at least you're consistent.

My wife (who has not threatened to poison me) does not believe him either.

Not sure I doubt him......there are plenty of immature, disrespectful people out there. Unfortunately, some airlines give them the "keys to a plane." Lovely......

Care to explain as to WHY this isn't believable? I can insult you guys all day if you want to make it more believable....

Or maybe it's just me. I actually like my job. How many people do you know that can say that?
Not very many Delta pilots if you based it on the latest and greatest forum.
