Delta Pilots--Heard, But Not Seen?

Sat Apr 29, 2006 8:46 am

Flew Song TPA-BOS Monday, and the return Thursday. In both cases, heard the usual flight deck announcements, but no one from the cockpit was on hand when passengers left the plane. Is that an option for the flight crew?
The result of the current contract trouble? Seems they've always been there in the past.

(I just wanted to tell them that I know times are tough, but I was glad they were there when I really needed them.... doing it now on the off chance that
they check a-net.)
I read the news today..oh boy

Quoting TPAnx (Thread starter):

Id think so. I've seen it where the pilots diddnt open the door on US and AA, most likely they were busy or just diddnt want to. Was this a night flight? As thats where i've seen it most.
Doors open, right hand side, next stop is Springfield.

Or if the landing was particularly bad!! One of the disadvantages of being a male purser saying good bye to everyone at the door is we get blamed for bad landings!!

Both were daytime flights..w/normal landings. It is a bit disconcerting to go
into BOS, look out the window, and see a crane at your height. Used to hear pilots ask whether there were any ships in the harbor as they were on final...it's easy to see why,
