I have flown various times within Brazil in the past and have not encountered the following before.
On 3 or my last 5 flights within Brazil (2 with Gol and 1 with Webjet), I have noticed some unusual pilot activity. First flight, about 10 min after take off, the pilot/co-pilot was hanging out with the flight attendants in the back of the aircraft for literally 10 minutes. To me, he was hitting on young beautiful GOL flight attendents. This seemed like very young pilot. I really don't see the pilot belonging in the back of the plane for so long. This was CNF-POA flight.
Webjet was very similar, Pilot went to the back of the plane and did the same thing, chatted in the back while having a quick snack. This lasted about 5 minutes.
The other GOL flight which I bring up is that they had a flight attendant enter the cockpit to take food twice and spent a great amount of time there (10+ min). Possibily taking some of the attention away of pilots?. On this same flight, landing in CNF, the pilot seemed to take a very sharp turn before landing. Most approaches to CNF have been coming straight for a good amount of time, not quick sharp turn and landing. Seems like young pilots still flying Cessnas.
Anyway, I feel like lack of professionalism and safety sometimes while flying in Brazil compared to the US. Wonder if this has to do with economic boom and the rising number of flights needing more and more pilots, hiring young and not so experience pilots.
