Pilots "interacting" With FAs

I hope I don't offend anyone with this post, but this is an entirely serious question. How often (in the real world) do pilots (lets assume they are single) actually "interact" with flight attendants during a layover, if you catch my drift?

ALL the time. Married or single. Not all of them, mind you... but this is a pretty common thing from what I've seen.

I hope this doesn't make the new, but that doesn't sound exclusive of airline people "interacting" with colleagues during long and cold job travels nights.

According to my uncle who flew for National in the 60s/70s, it was like heaven on earth - he was in his early 30s and single, and the FAs were young and footloose.

I should have been born ten years earlier - these days most of the FAs at my airline are older than I am...

Yes but in fairness don't you think, what you posted about only became more widely apparent in the late 80s/early 90s and well, in the "good ol' days" with the straights and the young ladies...

I don't think I've had a pretty young woman as a F/A on any flight I've taken domestically of late.

So something has changed.

You mean with those who faked being straight in order to avoid imprisonment and being fired for "moral turpitude"? You mean those that hid their whips and handcuffs in their carry ons? How about the male Captains who had their pink panties at the bottom of the flight bag? What about the female dominatrix with her "appliances" hidden in a purse?

Yes, those were the "good ol' days" when everybody was some kind of fraud and a liar.

Check that. I did however use B6 for a couple transcons last year and was surprised at the "quality" of female FAs.

...the best bet for attractive young women in the aviation industry is at the FBOs scattered around Southern California. I dated one that worked at Maguire VNY for a while.

I have also had pretty good luck with European carriers. Whether it's an international flight or domestic flight in Europe there's a pretty large handful of good looking FAs.

How about scattered across the US???? At an FBO I used to work at in the midwest the female ramp agents and the gals behind the counter were just about the most "footloose" gals I have ever seen. I once walked out to our ramp van (the follow me van) to find one of our gals just getting it on with a pilot who just landed hours before. He didnt have the patience for her to end her shift and she apparently wanted it right away. What better place than out in the open in the back of a ramp van?  Wow!

Due to weather one year my flight from ATL to MCI was cancelled. So they routed me through DFW then to MCI. Icing conditions all over the country. Well the flight into DFW was late and I missed the last flight into MCI. DL put us up in the Hyatt at DFW and I spent about 2 hours at the hotel bar that night. What seemed like 100 FA, pilots and hotel workers slowly turned into about a group of 10. During the couple hours that I was there I heard every pick up line in the book. The suprising thing was it worked. I'm suprised the hotel wasnt rocking back and forth that night! The group of 10 was just a bunch of guys left. Me... I'm a happily married man so I retired early that night.

I've seen it on just about every airline I've flown on. F9, WN, DL, AA.... you name it. About 3 - 4 years ago I used to fly from MCI to LAX fight pretty frequently and there was a very attractive flight attendant. Lets just leave it at that but it seemed every flight for about 3 months she was on it. Very nice and pleasant woman. On one flight we disembarked and I forgot my laptop case under the seat. The gate agent let me back on the plane after everyone got off and I then proceeded to my seat. As I approached the back of the plane I heard giggling then a loud moan. In a flash I thought the FA was being attacked. Well... she was but she was enjoying it too much.

I will leave the rest up to your imagination.... but that pilot had the fastest hands I've ever seen.

My mother refused to date my father until she checked with half of the airline. She refused to believe that a pilot in his thirties was not married yet. (he had been in the military until he joined the airline)

My mother, by the way, is 10 years younger than my father. I can't help but be impressed and appalled that my father preyed on a 23yr old FA when he was 34. Atta boy, daddy.
