Looks as if GOL has surpassed the rank of First Officer and gone right to the good 'ol FE. Guess this is where all the airlines retiring their third crew member send 'em! No, but in all seriousness, I realize that this is in fact the First Officer, but why is it that he has only two stripes on his shoulder? And do any other airlines follow this ranking procedure?

This has been discussed before, but to sum up:

All airlines have their own seniority codes. For some an F/O wears 3 bars and captain wears 4.

For others F/O's wear 2 bars, senior F/O wears 3, and captain wears 4.

It just varies from company to company and there are other different combinations as well im sure.

Regds.

A little off topic, but what is up with the weird border between the FO's head in the first picture and the background?  Confused

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

No, that is not his hair. It looks like it was oversharpened before and then softened in PS... did you look aat the large view, FriendlySkies?

Looks like the band of his headseat, and the reason it looks a little strange is from the light reflected from the camera flash...

I think he moved his head foward a little during the exposure of the film
