I am looking for some more info on Boston Maine Airways, does anyone know a pilot that works there or someone that can provide some more details about the company. Someone posted the Capt and FO share a room on the road, can anyone confirm or deny that for starters? Thanks.

I have a friend there. He works 6 days a week and they have left him out on his day off. He never mentioned the hotel situation.

A five year contract should tell you what kind of job it is.

Alot of there management has recently left as I have seen ads for different positions.

The pay is better than most commuters but your gunna earn every penny.

BMA Pilot Life

Currently flying for BMA. Working a boatload, 6 on 1 off. Lots of good experience, planes are junk, moral company wide is the lowest I've ever seen at any workplace. You do not stay in hotels, the have "crew apartments" because they are too cheap to get you hotels. No you do not share a room. Just biding my time until I get called for a real airline interview. I would stay away, especially if you are a CA!

BMA info

I know a couple guys who work there.

Company is short handed for pilots, thats why they work so hard. From what I understand, the schedules are much better now.

The contract says five years on the top, but the 5 years applies only to the company salaries and minimum days off etc... The $14,600 training portion is only 18 months long.

I guess BMA uses two crew houses and the rest of the time they use hotels.

I think I saw them up in Harrisburg the other day?

Not perfect, but what airline is?
