Errrr no. Pilots will judge the others they fly with on ability, attitude and character in their present role. Only a small minority of pilots would show less respect to a pilot because of their prior background, thatís akin to racism in a way.

Maybe a lot of people would bond more easily because of shared backgrounds or prior jobs or such, but that shouldnít mean they donít give the same level of professional respect to a pilot because they didnít follow the same path into an airline that they did. If they do thatís a sign of poor character.
