Rode the bus from the employee parking lot at STL. Couldn't help but feel sorry for the poor dummy in the GJ uni. He pretty much stared at his shoes sheepishly as fellow riders telepathically shot waves of scorn at him. Looked kinda like when your dog knows he's been caught in the act.

Hey,
Did you think to find out the make, model and lic# of his car so concerned pilots could leave him informational notes about the alter ego concept in case he is on a trip and not around?

Easy, now. If he was a new hire FO, cut him some slack. The poor bastard probably had no idea what he was getting himself into. (Think back to your first days in this industry. Unless your daddy was God's gift to Pan Am, DL, UA, whoever, you probably didn't have a whole lot of an idea how things worked either.) If he was a captain that transitioned, different story.

I just wonder at what point these people ask themselves if it was really worth it. I mean, surely they expected such treatment before they took the job. I don't buy them not knowing about it, my understanding is that most of the GJ pilots had prior experience in this industry before they went over. It can't be easy going to work every day knowing that the pilots for virtually every other airline except your own sees you as pond scum. Perhaps reading things like this will help convince future would-be G0Jets pilots that its not as easy as you may think.

So why didn't you spout off to him and tell him what you think?? You sound like one of those whinny little Bi@tches who throw rocks at others here, but you don't have the gumption to say it to his face!!!!

Looking at your profile, it appears you just signed up, or did you?? Is this profile your stone throwing profile, so others won't know who you are?? And since when are you a mind reader??

How do you know what his fellow riders were thinking?? For all you know, the gate agents or rampers may have been thinking about booze or better yet getting laid!!!! How do you know they weren't looking at you saying, "That guy looks like a real DORK!!!!"

Why don't you grow up, I'll bet you're the same clown blocking radio calls, thinking you are cool!! In some wierd way, what goes around comes around!! I'm not condoning him working for an alter-ego, but come on, grow up!!!!

I'm done ranting now, Beer me!!!!

Reread some of what you just typed. Your post has the maturity level of a high school kid. Yet you are telling someone else they need to grow up?

When you see these people, you need to let them know how you feel. They deserve no respect. Speak up, tell them what scum they are, question their decesion to go to work for these bastards. I am yet to run into one but I can't wait for the day I do.
As a side note, has anyone had any of these guys try to jumpseat? Just curious how they get to work. If it is driving, I hope you STL guys notice what they are driving and give them what the deserve. They are bringing us all down and in my eyes they need to come down with us. If this was a blue collar union their houses would be burning.

You want to find some of these low-lifes?The DoubleTree in STL is crawling with them. So is the FlightSafety there. They scurry around with their badges turned backward to avoid the stares.

And yes, I have talked to them, however briefly. It was truly painful to see how low the company has gone to find these...uh...aviators? You wouldn't believe it unless you saw and heard them for yourselves. One chick was so fat I'm certain the CRJ will take a weight penalty at any temperature above 3 degrees celsius with her aboard. One turd of a fellow tried to tell me that "a lot of TSA guys were coming to fly with them". I'm not sure which hallucinogenic the pre-employment drug test missed but this rat was clearly delusional.

I applaude you sir for having the b@lls to say it to their face!! However, will it make them turn in their resignation tomorrow?? Probably not!! Atleast you had the insestinal fortitude to speak your mind, not hide behind a bogus user name!!!

So what's next, vandalizing someone's property, are you going to torch their car?? Better yet their house or apartment??? Then what, harm or injury someone else!! Then YOU will get what YOU deserve, a felony criminal conviction, which will disqualify you from getting a part 121 flying job, which in turn will prevent the rest of us from having to fly with YOU!!!

Of course, you are probably just another naysayer with a big mouth!!!

Yes, yes you are. Do you work for G0Jets by chance? Or do you have your application in with them? Its either that or you're an ex-Freedom scum.

Nice try lad, neither!! I just don't understand how you guys can advocate violence or justify the other shenanigans that go on?? For you guy's to get into an airplane with the FAA take check rides then act so silly and irresponsible is mind boggling!!!!
