Anyone who picks up open time when your company has furloughed pilots.

TOTD is the pax in front of you while your commuting to/from work, who after takeoff violently forces their seat to recline in an anything but smooth way, and impacts your knees, laptop, etc.

For that offense, I punished anyone within a 20-foot radius once cabin altitude forced the toxins from waste duct.

D. Vodjansky by chance?

Really? REALLY? What a neanderthal! Why some "men" think they're entitled to some eye candy when flying is beyond me. You want to ogle women----go to a strip club. Jesus. This genius also shows his sheer ignorance with his crew rest comment.

Isn't it possible his concerns were more related to fuel savings?

What about "Boston John" ? "Hasta la veeeesta! MOCHAHAGADI ! "
P.S.-calling clearance and saying "Pan Global 123,instruments to Scranton.."=tool.

Haha, Had to think about that one for a second or two! Then again, some men actually like women with curves. Not every male is into the "14 year old boy" look.......

Only a tool if they are under 50. I can remember having to build a fire under some radios to warm up the tubes enough

Back when most companies had the inflight magazines, what I would do is as soon as I got in the seat, I would roll up a couple of magazines tightly and stick them vertically in the seat pocket. That effectively eliminates their ability to recline the seat.
