I sent an email to CP BS stating that closing D lounge and removing the computers a bad decision. Most of the 200s operate out of D, and with the minimal breaks between flights there is no time to go over to C and check OT, schedule changes, DLNet, etc. Plus I put my flight bag in the bag room at D as I often finish my trip on D. If anyone feels as I do, let the CPs know, SH, and BH. maybe they'll reverse this decision, hopefully.


ps plus how will JB & Will post on flightinfo???? (joking guys :D easy now)

No more "prop Mafia". No need for the Bada Bing Lounge. Besides that place was getting pretty crusty.

Don't worry though, I'm sure the newest regional based in ATL will have no problems calling it home.

Someone needs to take down the sign and bring it to the new lounge.

You actually think that an e-mail to that little suckup would do any good?

-Try emailing BH directly.... He actually will respond.

I never go to D anymore. The best D can offer is an earlier duty in if you're really desperate. ;)

They need to put it over the door of the new exercise room. In general ATR pilots were in much better shape than the jet pilots.

Yeah, if by "the jet pilots" you mean all the Bill Jacksons.


The fate of the D lounge was sealed when they removed the coffee maker.

And no, the company will not talk to Air Serv about dropping folks off at the new lounge instead of the spine. How else are you gonna get the "Bill Jacksons" to switch to the new lot.

If you had cleaned it up, Mesaba management would not have even considered it. Nothing but small, dirty and nasty for Mesaba crews. All of our crew rooms are shamefully sh!tty.

Be sure to put all of your broken chairs in there, and we'll feel right at home.

The question is can the Mesaba Saab Pilot's live up to the standard set fourth by the ATR Prop Mafia.

That lounge is disgusting. It should be condemned!

So should we delay flights if we need to walk from D36 to C 55 to check the weather on a computer, and then walk all the way back while on a 30 minute turn (which is probably now 15 min because it takes so long to get parked)?

79%N1,

You check weather?

I thought those computers were for the rampers and air serve folks to buy things on ebay.
