my F/O frequently leaves the A330 flight deck hastily when arriving at a gate or stand immediately after finishing the parking checklist. He pretends to "go out for a walkaround".
Honestly I don't really trust him anymore as I am pretty sure he is just blowing a kiss to the pax sitting on 1C. Every time he returns to the flight deck literally less than 2-3 seconds later, he is happily announcing "I am back from the walkaround - everything looks good" as though nothing had happend.
Maybe one should teach him to leave the flight deck only after asking for permission to go for a walkaround and maybe one should teach him to do the walkaround on the second leg as diligent as he does before the first leg of the day, too.
Best regards, Björn
