The captain, looked at me in total disgust and didn't even say hi back. They boarded, I ended up with the jump so again i introduced myself, ask politely if it is okay and hand the captain all of the paperwork. He goes on to breif me on their cockpit, when he gets to the escape hatch he points at it and says "grab the handle, the red one, like your face..." No more words were shared until we are about to descend and the FO turns around to ask what I fly. "A 402." To which he responds, "I don't know what that is, I'm not general aviation, I;m Navy. Is that like a King Air?" The best part: I don't think that they even get it. I'll be riding any other airline out of here. I'd rather rent a car and drive three hours than ever deal with that sh$t again.""

I wish she would have shown that PSA FO her last paycheck it's likely twice what he makes. Hope she's on a hiring board some day and these guys walk in for an interview.

I call bvll****. You're telling me the CA gave her permission to close without a bag sheet (because you claim they were still putting bags on the cart.) and that she would close without her final paperwork, which comes from the gate agent, who obviously couldn't because people were still boarding and that a ramp agent also did this because Mesa/AA policy requires a ramp agent be present to close the boarding door? Nice try on fake Mesa bashing though....

Later that day while we were taxiing out to the penalty box TO SIT FOR A WHEELS UP TIME, we got behind a UAL-Express ERJ that was once again taxiing like normal people do. His comment was, "He must be practicing for mainline". He didn't seem to appreciate my response of, "He's taxiing like every other carrier taxies. Have you not noticed that we're the ones that have a seemingly monthly taxiway/runway excursion or collision with another aircraft or surface equipment?"

TOOL! Slow the [sunflower seed] down! It's not missles strapped to the wings anymore!'
I was in the JS of A320, former F4 guy was yanking and banking like the NAM days. I love UAL, they treat me so well, I really wanted to say something, but they toss me in BIZ class when I JS to asia. The FO should have said something. It was bad.

I run into miserable pilots all the time during my commute. And, surprise, they're from all different airlines. Not just PSA. Smile, sit there and keep your mouth shut, thank them for the ride, and go about your day.

'Tis true, BUT I'm sure you'd agree that personal insults have NO place in a "professional" setting such as a cockpit. Totally juvenile and just plain mean.

I've always had wonderful experiences with jetBlue, the airline I jump on the most. I'm only allowed to sit in the cabin, but have to run it past the Captain, of course, so I'm spoiled by their graciousness and hospitality. The one time I took an unnamed regional from IAD to EWR, as I needed to get home ASAP, I was caught off-guard when a "captain" said "I don't care, do what you want" when I introduced myself asking for a ride home.

It takes all kinds, I guess, but still don't think personal insults are acceptable.

LN, I do agree about personal insults. Not cool. However, too many people these days are offended by the smallest things. That pilot may have been dealing with some heavy personal stuff and, as most humans do, was unable to keep personal and professional separate. Not condoning that behavior. But, the comment was not necessarily a personal attack. It very well could just be poor intrapersonal skills and is not unique to one airline or pilot group.
