What goes around comes around indeed. Nothing to be proud of.

For all those that are enjoying saying "what goes around comes around" at least as Jetstar Pilots we will not take it out on the pilots working for J* Singas and J* NZ because we know the enemy is the company not the pilots. As for J* pilots hanging thy head in shame when I give pilots from another organisation a nod in the terminal about 30% of the time they look away therfore I know who the proud pilot is.

It irks me even more when JQ flight attendants on duty travel on QF international flights like QF001 get a higher upgrade priority than QF staff travelling on leisure
(my bolding)

Are you serious????? Duty travel trumps staff travel always, no matter which airline you're writing about.

It never ceases to amaze me

The cabin crew on that flight were more than accomodating and thankful that they had an aviation porfessional in the emergency exit row, secure in the knowledge I had the capability and experience to direct pax in an emergency!

One of the passenegers next to me even asked me some questions on the briefing card and I helpfully pointed out some details!

So, I think that there is nothing wrong at all, in fact it is beneficial for professional aircrew to be appropriately identifiable when paxing on RPT services!
Not a troll, just a SJS wannabe.

Can we please have a thread describing all the pilot uniforms I'm likely to see in an Australian terminal so I know which ones to advert my eyes from.

Sadly I'm usually unable to determine who's from which airline most of the time so I just give 'em a nod anyway. There was even a bloke in Sydney the other day in the same uniform as me but he had a beard. Turns out he was from across the Tasman but he still seemed like a reasonable bloke whilst we chatted while waiting for a coffee.

I used to think it was professional courtesy to respect and recognise a colleague in any uniform. How naive I've been all this time.
