I honestly can't think of a job that pays what a pilot makes where making those comments over a public address system wouldn't get you fired.
I think in this case because it was over a closed system (cockpit and the flight tower) there may be some wiggle room and in essence what was a private conversation between 2 co-workers was overheard. The co-pilot, whom I would be sure the pilot knows, probably shares a same general attitude for the guy to say something like that to him in the first place.
Most everyone does similar stuff every day. Somehow calling a Vietnamese pain in the ass co-worker that I refer to as Ho Chi Mihn (and not in the nice way) to a few trusted others would get me canned in a heartbeat if heard by the wrong people.
And possibly further confused that the quote you used in your post was an excerpt to a reply from him to me based on my reply to him.
Confused the shit out of me anyway, but then again, that doesn't take much.
