So, the Captain took the First Officer instead of letting you jumpseat? If that's what you're saying then, yea, that IS a bit ridiculous.freighthumper said:On a seperate yet very related note, I would like to thank the captain last night that denied me a ride home from BUR because he wanted to play flight school with a PFT first officer. You would think that we could all stick together to help each other in things like getting home when its 1 AM and youve been working doubles all week. Sorry about the rant, but WTF..
Did you call him/his ops before hand to let him know you sure would appreciate a ride home before the flight originated?freighthumper said:Yeah I talked to the official power that is at AMF, and he said that since it was company business he should have bumped the FO..not that it got me home any earlier that night... but at least I heard it from the "horses mouth".
If I was a real schmo Id tell everyone his name in a hope that someone out there would strand his PFT supporting A$$ some night..but I wont.. Just dont be a a$$hole to other people trying to get home..is that too much to ask?
