Heard from my US Airways guard buddy tonight that he was denied jumpseat tonight (7/14) out of PNS by a Delta Capt. It's just getting more pathetic day by day in this business.
Did he give a reason?TheDonger said:
There are two sides to every story. Spill the beans.TheDonger said:
How come all these stories start out with "I heard from a friend..." Almost never do you hear "I was denied". Tell your buddy to call ALPA jumpseat coordinator with date and flight number or call professional standards. This was done wasn't it? Or did you just run to the nearest computer to put it on Flightinfo.comj?TheDonger said:
One possible scenario: DAL capt. is busy, running behind, and knows his plane will be just below MTOW. In fact, he's in the process of communicating to rampers to offload a few bags to get him below. Weather's bad, so an alternate is required. Therefore, fuel load is higher than normal, and offloading is not an option. Captain feels bad for being so curt, but is too busy to offer an explanation.TheDonger said:The only person that did anything wrong was the DAL cap. The US Pilot was escorted down the jetway by the DAL agent. The agent handed the US guy's ID to the MD-80 Capt and he flat out said "no." They never talked or anything. You tell me where's the "other story" there. Everybody should stop this nonsense. It's highly unprofessional and uncalled for.
Instead of flaming me, why don't you ask yourself why these stupid jumpseat denials happen in the first place? Tell that to the Jetblue guys that get denied on UAL, NWA, and yes DAL. FWIW, you're welcome on my jumpseat anytime. And yes ALPA has been notified.DAL737FO said:How come all these stories start out with "I heard from a friend..." Almost never do you hear "I was denied".

The only thing I can think of is the fact that US Airways is still alive. Sadly a lot of my fellow peers wish my company would die thinking that would save their own job.FL000 said:Is there a standing beef between DAL and USA?

Well they must have gotten a lot of those spam emails about PNS enhancement pills since they are in the process of lengthening them now. An extra 1-2 thousand feet within 6 months!Plug said:Hey size doesn't matter when it comes to PNS. He He....couldn't resist
