Are you sure it wasn't Captain Happy?......

My God, ok, I'll sit in the jumpseat if I want to, ok? There's like other passengers for the seats back there and you didn't tell me which seat to take, so I'll take whichever one I want. I make a mistake every 3 minutes, and my god there's like 1 jumpseat here, but I don't appreciate your attitude.

I'd call that an irony

Now doing a debrief or critique on a taxi in is not the right time.
Way too much nit picking if each and every flight needs to be debriefed other than the crappy crew meals, coffee, and of course lack of breadsticks on the meal tray. Boarder line OCD.

FTF,

I should have been more specific, I was referring to critiques/criticisms from a jumpseater/deadheading pilot. Unless something unsafe is happening, probably best to just sit there quietly.

I'll get right on that. At least I apologized for my stupidity, looks like you've doubled down on yours.

Seriously man, you've got some major underlying anger issues. Get some help.
Thanks for the tip, Mike! But there's nothing like a new-hire whining about all the "tools and cat ranchers" he has to fly with after getting hired in front of 12k other applicants and cashing in the winning lottery ticket to really crack me up!

You're not commuting to reserve, you're not sitting sideways in a 727, you haven't been furloughed, and your biggest problem is if the captain doesn't take his seat in the back on a DH..hilarious! I really liked the part where you get all butt-hurt when the FA's praise the captain and he has the gall to criticize your landing..during taxi back to the gate, no less! Man, that was hysterical!

And then you run back to APC with your tail between your legs to call all of your fellow DL pilots DB's and ATL guys tools hoping to get a pat on the back on this thread..that was the best therapy a butt-hurt Coastie like me could ever hope for!

Thanks again! Keep up the good work and let us know if you fly with any more tools! Who am I kidding? Of course you will!

I'm feeling better already..CG Out

i also used to frequently debrief stuff post flight--when I was in the military and we had formal debriefings, after either a training flight, exercise, or actual combat. Even then, we never debriefed after a "normal" transport flight.

In the airline world we never--NEVER--"debrief" following a routine flight. That would be mind-blowingly pointless.

Now if a checklist or a procedure had changed, and the other guy hadn't yet "gotten the memo" then yes, a quick reminder or pointer would be in order. If the landings were terrible all the time, and you know a good way to fix the issue, that MIGHT be a time to politely bring something up. There are no doubt other times when a little "hey don't forget that we are supposed to do such and such this way, and the company is really emphasizing that" might be called for.

But if we nitpicked every flight (up to five times a day) with "well your taxiing was a bit faster than ideal, work on your radio procedures, my technique is to call for the checklist at such and such a time, and why don't you think about doing the same?" we would all collectively go catatonic with the uber-stupidity of it all.

Standard debrief is either, "Good Landing," or "That sucked!" The first one usually said to the FO, the second one usually a self critique.

It's required. It can be as simple as "I think that flight went great", or could be a lot more in depth.

Sorry, I thought you were referring to the landing critique on taxi in he mentioned.
