ASA is adamant that pilots on the 200 stow their crew bags in the cargo bin vs inside the cabin. We stow in the cabin becauise they get lost/misplaced/damaged in the back. The only way to stow inside is if the small cabinet next to the cockpit has been modified with the new door so that bags can fit in there. We've tried the deal with the 'placing your bag in the yellow bags' but the rampers lose the yellow bags, so that's been sheetcanned.

Other operators of the 200, what's your company's policy on this?

This is just another example of ASA management shredding our QOL. Last night I was on an overnight at the bar in my uniform because the rampers lost my luggage. STRIKE NOW

I'll bet it was a lot easier to pick up chicks that way, though. ;)

Hows that going to stop them from being damaged?? i.e. at the bottom of the pile?

Unfortunately the bags are usually gone to bag claim by the time of a post-flight inspection! They just ignore all those 'crew bag' tags for some reason.;)

At the larger airports it's a betch getting that bag back, and being on-time :D . Sent an email to our ALPA reps asking for their help in allowing us to put our bags in the cabin.

Ignorance has been bliss for me on this situation, right up until I read our ALPA board last night and saw a thread about it.

I've always just stuffed my bag in the overhead and forgotten about it. Bad FO, bad! :smash: Guess the company and I don't share the same "vision".

Now you're "SkyWest," you oughta just do what we do at SkyWest -- put 'em in the overhead bins. I don't know what percentage, but it seems like most of the 200s have the modified closet door, but there are still a lot that don't. For all that don't have it, they go in the overhead bins. I don't know anyone who puts their bags in the back.

Heard from a CP that we had a capt. in ATL that went to baggage claim to find his bag at departure time. Guess what he got?

7 unpaid days off! Nice. Even the CP said the punishment didn't fit the stupidity.

Mesa . . .

1. Cram that bastard into the overhead bid. Keep it in a forward compartment so you can keep an eye on it (I've seen passengers "accidentally" take it twice now).

2. Or, cargo compartment, if you must. Just check after each and every flight to make sure it gets put back on. I guarantee though, on your last flight of a 5 day trip, you'll forget to check and it will be left at an outstation . . . probably with your car keys that you left in there too. See option 1.

thats what i used to do... It works perfectly so long as you change out of your uniform shirt (and hide your id) before leaving the airplane so the gate agents cant figure out you are the pilot and give you that "urgent message" from screw scheduling blessing you with another trip.

Getting two bags into the modified closet is still a pain unless you have a small bag. Getting two regular sized bags in there is about as hard as getting a cat into a bathtub.

I saw the note also so I took it out of the overhead bin and pink-tagged it and sent it to the back on the last round trip. When I got it back after ONE round trip, it had two zippers bent in half and my crew tag was gone.
I think I'll send the repair bill in and tell them either pay me or it goes back upstairs....

As long as they're standard sized (ie PNT), and not overstuffed, two bags fit fine in the closet. The key is to lay them on their sides and not try to stand them up. I wish the doors opened a few inches wider, though.

What? Are you afraid the rampies are going to lose the cheap Gateway laptop your mammie gave ya? Thanks for giving me another reason to not ride on a regional airline...if your luggage is too good to ride with rest, my money is too good to provide you a job. Thanks for playing!

Good luck with the first part of that. AS for the second, apparantly our new fed has been sitting at the bottom of the steps as our crews get off and violating those that have their bags inside when they "shouldn't". Just be careful.

FN, There is a little difference between a passengers bag riding for 1 leg and ours riding for 18 legs in 3 days. And most of us are more worried about having our bags pulled when they aren't supposed to be than anything else. There's not a lot of things worse than getting to your overnight and not having a bag to take to the hotel.
