Question for regional pilots. Do some of you actually live and sleep in your crew rooms at the airport? I've heard stories of regional pilots living in and sleeping their because the can't afford a crashpad or are just to cheep to get one. Are these stories true or just lore?

Mesa pilots sleep on the planes!

Sleeping on the aircraft hell…

I remember when we first started Calgary Alberta stand ups they would not let us stay on the aircraft. Nor would they let us stay in the terminal that closed at around 2am. So if you did not have cab fair to the all night coffee shop down the road you camped out on the park bench in front of the terminal.

Never had to do this one myself thank God but an F/O I talked to said that his captain saved all the newspapers from the days flying. He then covered himself up while lying on the bench to take a nap. No kidding, the F/O said he had taken a picture of it with his camera phone.

But with the CX of most of the LAS flying that stuff is mostly over with.

P.S. For all you good people cheering for our demise you will be happy to hear this. Paul F. (Current title COO?) told a recent recurrent G/S that Mesa would file for bankruptcy in November of this year.

For what its worth… You know how this rumor mill stuff goes.

Wow, I'm sure Paul F. would risk going to prison for devulging insider trader information to a recurrent class. Any chance you are looking for a bridge? Perhaps some oceanfront property in Iowa? Let me know, thanks!

I can't figure out why these guys, especially captains, won't spring 150-200 dollars for a descent place to sleep. There are guys who do stand-ups that sleep in the lounge and shower in the hotel and cruise the terminal all day. What a life to live in the crew room.

Not a chance in hell unless you’re willing to lease to own.

BTB ets to "sleep" at the airport a lot. If you can call getting clocked in his head with a tire tool "sleep."

Apparently, on of BTB's "naps" caused him to lose the brain cell responsible for the proper usage of tough words like "cheep."

I heard that the russian fellows bringing in those Antonov 124s into CHS sleep on the aircraft as well, therefore not having to go through Immigrations and Customs.

I think you should probably try again, dumbass...

-Your attempted insult neither is clever nor insightful. Too bad you are so obvious, General. I do like your avatar, though. You should enjoy mine-it is certainly relevant for you...

-Lots of tiny felines are eating it on your account.

That's total bs. Why would the COO even talk to the disgusting lowly servants, I mean pilots?? That's what happens when you sleep under the bridges or in row 12, you start getting delusional.

Yea that happens, but not as often as you having to clean your keyboard from masturbating all over it because of the excitement you get from posting on FI.
