Hood doesn't really respect him either, particularly in The Thursday War.
There are a few lines to pick out which highlight that.

Funny thing though.
While you could say Traviss is:
"trying to shove the "HE'S AN ELITE THEREFORE UNTRUSTWORTHY LOL LET'S GENOCIDE THEM" aspect in our faces"

The fact is, she has largely portrayed the Sangheili as actually being the total opposite.
They have almost all demonstrated far more trust in Humans than the other way around, and this is actually mentioned with Kilo-Five characters noticing aspects of this trust which they themselves would not actually return.
We're actually having the flaws of the humans pointed out to us.
Kilo-Five was almost hand-picked to be xenophobic.
Anti-Sangheili sentiment was quite literally in their job description.
The exception is Phillips, who often gets quite strongly reprimanded for displaying sympathy to the 'hinge-heads'.

A highlight to point out is when Vaz watches the farm workers tear another Sangheili to shreds with their bare hands, being completely appalled, describing them as savages and stating humans wouldn't do that.
...But anyone who knows even a little human history, and be assured KT does, knows that Humans are perfectly capable of acts every bit as brutal.
