Wow.
Is that how he described the situation to you, I'm guessing.

So you are a non rev. And he has a ticket. So you are mad that he took "HIS" seat that the company booked?

Which makes him the TOTD. "Letting" me have the jump on my own metal was the cherry. I humbly accepted his gracious act.

Legacy American Airlines pilots don't.

After being grilled and put on the hot seat they finally caught the guy on camera. Turns out a pilot with a major Regional was on the moving walkway behind me and picked it up, stuffing it in his pocket.

A warrant was issued and the guy was met at ORD as he came off his flight a couple weeks later. I would like to have seen his face when he was met by the police. Never did find out if he's now unemployed.
Just had lunch with a friend from trans states, she was telling me a story about how one of their captains was arrested on the plane in ohare. Story is he picked up an envelope or something full of 700 in cash off the ground at a previous airport. Paid a fine and still has his job. Sounded suspiciously close to this.

If I recall currently, the OP's credibility was called into question by more than one responder in this thread. Maybe time to eat some crow?

To the rest of the crew on a recent layover, but mostly my captain.

Captain and I were to DH a short leg later in the day and while on the van I asked him if he had reserved his seat for the DH leg yet. He replied something to the effect of "nope, I plan to just take the JS so the company can get an extra revenue pax aboard". After I choked down my bile, I mentioned that by doing so, he might be depriving a commuter of their ride to/from work. I didn't even bother mentioning how he was eroding hard won benefits in the contract or kow-towing to the company during section 6 negotiations since he's a through and through kool-aid drinker. He didn't seem overly concerned, and all the cat ranchers got on board praising what a good guy he was. Fortunately there were empty seats anyway and he ended up sitting in his contract approved seat. I guess in order to seal his tooldom and make up for not riding the jumpseat, after I had a fairly nice landing he proceeded to critique my landing technique for the entire taxi back to the ramp. I didn't believe we had guys like this when I flew with all the cool NYC captains, but ATL has really opened my eyes to why so many people (rightfully) think we're a group of such complete DBs.
