Default Jumpseat Etiquette

Huge shout out to the Republic pilot who bumped me off the IND-PHL jumpseat today TO GO HOME. It will be remembered when you or your colleagues show up on my jumpseat.

In the world of commuters, a pilot going to work should always have access to the jumpseat over a person going home. End of story.

Are you OAL looking for a ride?

Where I am going on my company jumpseat is none of the other JS riders business.

Sounds like youíre threatening a jumpseat war over a legit use of the jumpseat in proper assignment order.

You will lose that fight.

Who do you work for? And what do you think youíre entitled to?

Just checked with the gate agent and his non rev seniority would have granted him a seat in the back. You were saying?

You sound like you need to bring up your grievances with him and not an anonymous forum. Why would anyone take the JS if there is a seat in the back, and why wouldnít you just get the seat in the back if he took the jumpseat? Something doesnít add up.

Not really. If youíre using the JS for leisure travel and bump somebody going to or coming from work youíre just an industry ***hole.

Now as far as ďJS etiquette,Ē Iím pretty sure most captains, including myself, would rather help somebody get home from work over helping somebody get to work.

Based on the post history its an F9 pilot. So as OAL, you are upset that a YX employee took a jumpseat on their own metal to get home?

Perhaps he and the CSA decided that revenue standbys were more important than OAL jumpseaters. Suck it up, buttercup. You knew the job commuting had its ups and downs before you decided to do it.

If you have a problem with that try contacting your jumpseat coordinator.

No. Not upset at all. It is common courtesy to use your pass travel seniority to free up the cockpit jump. While no rule says you have to, it is widely accepted as that the appropriate thing to do.

While I am NOT an F9 Pilot, I know that on our airline if I have the opportunity to take a seat in the back to get a OAL pilot on the JS for work, I would do it and do it every time. If I am going home and a guy is going to work, offering the jumpseat is the right choice. Iíve done it on more than one occasion and will continue to do so.

I am not interested in a JS war because there are no winners but calling out someone for their selfishness ways is totally warranted. I consistently leave the day before of my show with a minimum of three flights but this type of behavior carries the risk of costing another pilot thousands of dollars in lost pay due to commuter protection trip loss. Personally, I would never do it to another pilot. Disagree if you want. Iíve said my piece and itís over. Bottom line, take care of your fellow pilot because he/she may be on the hiring board of your next airline.
