Have you ever been on a flight with a pilot you recognized from another flight?
Many multiple times.
In fact, there was even an Air India pilot (now long retired) who has been through multiple "incidents" with me aboard. In 1988, our 747 rammed the jetway at Schiphol after the lights on the guidance system malfunctioned and in 1992 we experienced a #3 engine fire right before V1 at Heathrow. He told my dad in jest that I was banned from ever flying with him again!!!

To my knowledge, I have never had the same pilot twice, but I have something weirder. I had the same UA 747-400 Captain non-rev/commute on my flights a week apart, along with part of the Cabin Crew. It was March of '03 and I went to FRA and London for a week. I flew a UA 762 LAX-JFK and LH 744 JFK-FRA, then back on LH 342 and UA 762. This captain lives in New York but is based out of LAX, so he was commuting. Then again, he sat in F and I got the exit row in Y. I actually got exit row window on both flights. I don't know thins, but there is a chance that it was even the same plane

I've flown severeal times between GLA and LHR on BD a fair amount and I started
recognising a particular captain's voice, I believe his name was Captain Dawson, as
soon as he started the announcement. He's flown me on that route at least 3, maybe 4,
