Gordo to DCA Thurs

Saw him seated on my 73G on Thurs afternoon into DCA. Crew still respects and likes him, it seems.

I didn't have a chance to make any comment, but if I did, I'd have said:

"Hi. Please can you pass on to Uncles Larry and Jeff the need for a fourth elite tier at CO with a meaningful benefit increment. Comparable to EXP or 1K.

Don't worry about DL

Thanks."

Chatted with him while standing in the FC aisle a while back. The F-bomb was dropped a few times. Made me laugh because even if someone reported it, what's anyone gonna do.

I think we do have a fourth tier- CoStar or Chairman's Circle.

Knowing Gordo I think it would only merit being reported if he didn't use the F bomb...

I'm sorry, while I know this post is all in good fun - do you really think a FORMER CEO really wants his time wasted with comments/suggestions regarding current management?

last time I checked, saying "f*ck" wasn't violating an FAR... unless used insulting or abusively towards a crewmember...

True, but how about trying a little experiment and letting a few fly while in uniform

LukeS, by the same token - do you really think that you speak for Gordo on this matter? I admit that I don't know if he would find this an engaging topic of conversation, but I bet you don't know for sure either. He can decide how to respond, should a reasonable opportunity arise and then he may, or may not, consider it a waste of his time.
