You very well might. Jumpseaters are required to check in at my airline. We also work hard to get them moved up to better seats than the agent provides.

I've had this happen twice when jumpseater's checked in. First time the Capt basically stopped the process, introduced me and wouldn't continue the process till said jumpseater acknowledged my existence. Good boss...

Second time I waited till 10,000 and jumped in the conversation uninvited. By the time the jumpseater (United) left, he was giving us his contact information to get in touch with him to be introduced to his base CP. I don't think he had been intentionally rude, just doing the minimum to get through the process of getting the seat.

Why do you want to interact with the jumpseater?

I like it because after spending 3 eight hour days with the rest of my crew it gives some new life to conversation.
