Earrings Allowed Now?

Waiting for my transport home in the Volvo Hold, I noticed a captain sporting an earring in HIS left ear in full uniform. I have no problem seeing it on your time off, but while on company duty and wearing the uniform...? Come on, now.

When one or two people get out of line this company have a history of looking closer at everybody and then coming down hard on all of us.

That's the issue here.

Education systems have slipped in recent years. Perhaps these chaps thought the job was pirate rather than pilot? I bet they are disappointed. Would explain some behaviour though.

Can't comment on EK , but I've seen pony tails, earnings , no tie , landing the jet in pyjamas, chips and snacks on the cockpit pedestal all the time , loud music being played in cruise with the pilot seat fully reclined

I don't know the guy and I wouldn't do that but at least he is not scared of his own shadow like many EK so called Captains.

Yeah or the guy you fly with threatening to leave if EK does this or that ..... 2 years later, EK has done this or that and you fly with him again ( but he doesn't remember) and he starts again with the same 😀😀😀.

Call me old school, but earrings really should be left to be worn by the girls out there. I have seen some men look quite cool with long hair, and shocking to say even a pony tail can look acceptable on some men.

However, the wearing of beautification jewellery in the ears while trying to be a cool guy just doesn't do it for me. Some guys are so desperate to try to be "cool" by the addition of earrings, this makes me concerned as to what his mental makeup is, being displayed to passengers, by trying to be so overtly "cool" at work.

Call me old school
Not old school Jack .... Just normal. I do question men who feel the need to wear women's jewellery but one does fear to open their mouth in these "modern" times.
