Paying customers can't tell a sky cap from a gate agent, much less a pilot.

I have seen a second pic from the front with the face blurred out. It looked pretty real and a lot like DFW in the background. I am trying to find it again to let you guys be the judge, but no luck so far.

That is because the legs were taken from a picture of a woman.

Different webboards say it's for real and folks know him as a practical joker. Hope he didn't joke himself out of a job. (I also read it was his last day working at that airline, and that would make the most sense.)

That said, uniform regs are uniform regs whether you like it or not. You know them AND the (crappy) salary you'll be earning before you sign on the dotted line, so there is no excuse really for immature and unprofessional behavior such as this.

What really grinds my gears is some of you who say it's hilarious would come down HARD on a FA for doing something similar and calling out their unprofessionalism and disrespect to their employer and fellow crew members. Gotta love double standards and hypocrisy.

If you guys can't tell that the comparatively thin female legs don't match the rest of the body, you need new glasses.

Precisely. I'm appalled that anyone on here would actually defend this guy. He's representing YOUR profession in full view of the general public. What a lost cause you are if you actually think this is in anyway okay. Let's just hope it was photoshopped.

...while we are airing grievances, can you all please STOP carrying those ridiculous backpacks. They are getting more and more popular with both young and old guys and are nauseating.
