Now that is someone I would want to fly a 4-day trip with. Creativity and a sense of humor... love it!

I bet he's on a first name basis already with the chief pilots.

I'm trying to figure out how "commuter" pants differ from "I live in Newnan (or Peachtree City) and drive to work" pants.

I have not used the word "dipwad" in quit some time, thank you for reminding me of its suggested uses. It shall be used in the near future.

God help this @#+*ing idiot if I was his CP, or even if I saw him in the terminal in passing. I'd have no qualms about lighting into him and embarrassing him in front of the public. He'd deserve it for being a complete disgrace to our profession.

At any foreign airline he'd be fired on the spot.

These things tend to correct themselves.

Presumably. I took it as humor, not toolishness...laughed pretty hard.

It's one thing to show up in training or the crewroom like that, but in full view of paying customers, no way; Major tool.
