    Hi all -

    On a United Express flight today there was a mainline pilot sitting in first with several people (10+) still on the upgrade list. Flight was full in back FWIW.

    I’m sure there’s a good reason why — just curious what that might be

    There’s a difference between a pilot on duty (dead heading) and a pilot commuting. If the pilot is on duty, it’s probably guaranteed in their union contract that they travel in F or J. There’s no way to know in this particular case what the circumstances are. I saw three pilots in uniform in the J cabin of a full flight from DWF to CDG last year, not a common sight but it happens.
