Thread: Erosion of Pilot Command / Authority

  1. #1
    Just flew with someone that was complaining about this very thing. I thought it was funny though because he looked homeless and probably did not shave or iron for the entire trip. No wonder the gate agents didnt give him any respect.

    He flew as bad as he looked by the way....

    Kind of a chicken and the egg theory is you ask me. Lower pay/respect for pilots means lower quality pilots which then create less respect for the pilots. Hard to tell us to "look the part" when we have to pinch every penny. Of course I'm looking at it from a bottom-rung FO's position. I would hope that the captains making $60-100k would spring for some decent dry cleaning and shaving kits!

    I know people on this board aren't always the mental giants of the aviation world, but you have to realize that I was mocking him.

    And you.

    Whoever wants it, really.

    Doesn't mean you make a million dollars either - or even more than $30k. I do understand the point of the original post, but you know, maybe the guy was homeless. Not so funny when you think about it like that, now is it?

    I don't think any of the "residents" are pilots. Granted that is at this point in time.
