I can recall a CX Captain being dismissed for making an error of judgement when travelling with another carrier in his own time.

Unfortunately in dismissal cases any junior pilots profit from ones demise and some senior people could not care less.

CX would have to be desparate for pilots for the offender to be re-instated.

Borg 32,

I would answer yes to question number 3. After all, they are my friends and colleagues.

But I must admit, as far as this particular incidence is concerned, without knowing the full facts, I do believe the pratt was let go for good reasons. Yes, I know emotions runs high, but somewhere there has to be a line and I feel he overstepped it.

What in case the Capitano would in stead of throwing peanuts have told the CEO; hat certain management practises are illegal and a potential danger to the safety of the passengers he is responsible for.
What if he got sacked for that, by taking his medical for psychological reasons, let's say paranoia,claiming il capuinano made some false allegations ???

Could Cx and the CEO get away with that ??

STREAMLINE....

Further to your query;

I would, as a professional, put these concerns in writing to my manager "cc" it to senior management and CEO (or The Board of Directors).
I certainly would not go throwing peanuts to get my point across.

Companies tend to respond rather quickly if these things are put in writing.

Is Scott Munro Scotish ex. Orion?
Well done my friend...you CX guys have been treated in the past for ''ncidents' off duty and in some cases summary dissmissal. So keep your 'kilt on' dispite things that have been said here and otherwise.

I believe Borg has a very good point, for those ex-mil imagine throwing things at your CO in the Mess, just wouldnt happen.

However this might make people consider which pencil necks they are working for and the history between these two personalities.

This is in the only bar in the 'biosphere' . CX crews stay at the company hotel which is attached to the HQ building. It's not like it's our first choice, it's the only choice.
