So I'm in the Southwest/JB terminal in MCO on Friday when this Jetblue F/O and his Commuter pilot girlfriend walk by and he has a SKATEBOARD under his arm.

Not so comedic yet?? Well, The lady next to me says "Is that a skateboard under his arm??"

Her husband (Picture a Grizzled old KO-REA vet!) responds..."Yeah, I'll be damned if I'm getting on Doogie Howser and Barbies Plane!!!"

Effing Hilarious.....everybody around him saw it and laughed.....I thought the guitar luggers were goofy, but this kid's gonna "Shred the Halfpipe DUDE" on his layover....

What have we become??

Maybe it was a gift for his nephew? I've bought some Seaworld stuffed animals and a princess hat at the Disney store for my kids in the Orlando airport--what does that make me?

There is about a 50% chance that he's a Commuter pilot too, since about half their planes now are RJs.

Last I checked Jet Blue didn't have a commuter contract carrier. Has that changed? Just because the title of the plane says "RJ" doesn't make a regional.

What's wrong with carrying a travel guitar? I'm actually looking for a good electric travel guitar cause sometimes I be jonezin' to play. Especially in some of the layover hotels we stay. What the hel! else am I going to do with 18 hours in Flint?

Agreed on the skate punk thing. It would only have been better if he had tried some 360 mctwist flippy doodad and busted his A$$.

I don't carry a guitar on the road, yet. But you just inspired me to get one.

So..... according to you? Pilot's shouldn't be allowed to skate?

Who cares what the pax think? All they want is the cheapest ticket subsidized by the cheapest wages.

I agree, it us very unprofessional to have a skateboard, guitar and/or backpack.

Come on guys/gals, how much stuff do you possibly need to carry on a trip. Is it really that important to look like a dork.

BTW, you might as well not wear your hat and just put sunglasses on top of your head like most XJT guys do.

I happen to like wearing a cap....beanie actually with a little propellor on top AND lick a large multi color lolipop while I skip through the terminal. Does that make me any less of a pilot? (The lolipop does goo up my goatee, but what the heck)

The appearance part of professional standards here at JetBlue is clearly our weak point.

We have some real winners here. Long hair, beards, non-standard uniform items, etc.

Personally, I really don't care as long as they can do a good job, and treat the customers well.

With our blue shirts, most of the passengers now think we are part of TSA, so the skateboard thing probably isn't an issue.

Truth is, I doubt this really happened as written. Too many details.
