Quoting Adam42185 (Reply 6): Is there that level of communication on every flight or is any of that embellished for the video? Any airline pilots that can answer?
I am not a pilot but have done many cockpit jumpseat rides, last one a couple of years ago. Yes there is that level of communication, but remember the video is editied so the communication that may have taken place over 45 mins is compressed in to 10 mins of video. Otherwise on approach there are moments of silence, but remember any time the pilot does something to the operation of the plane they will tell the other.

Quoting Mountain (Reply 23): Why do the first officers have two stripes? I thought three stripes indicated first officers. Back in the day, two stripes were for second officer, normally a flight engineer.
First Officer (FO) 2 Stripes, Senior First Officer (SFO) 3 Stripes. Normally at an airline, well a UK one anyway you will start as an FO then after a few years become an SFO.
