That guy is the personification of that old pilot joke where the pilot looks at his date after 45 minutes of talking and says "well enough about me. Let's talk about flying".

I think we're the minority from what I see around the industry. It seems to come from an over-exuberance directed toward the preservation of night vision (probably started when it was almost exclusively night ops and little to no inbound traffic when we were flying). Old habits seem to die hard there.
That FEDEX procedure is from the FSAT the FAA put out over a decade ago.

To the SWA flight we followed out of OAK Thursday morning that said to ATC at the end of every frequency change "Thanks, we appreciate the great job you do every day."

Good on them. A wee bit of courtesy, especially when requests by flight crews are granted, goes a long way, unless there congestion on the frequency?

So, does that mean every airline that turns every light they have on when they take the active to line up and wait is wrong? Not really sure what you're trying to say.

As Fred T. Rookus from the FAA says.... "See and be seen!"... Lights on.

Now you guys care what the "faa says". I bet most of your talk below 10, read the newspaper or vape in inflight.
