Being as I'm not an airline pilot (yet). I was wondering how nice the crew rooms in airports are? Are they actually nice to hang out in, or are they just chairs and computers. Also, does every airport have one or just the hubs?
Oh yeah! And I still see people sleeping on those couches! YUCK!Oh this thread is hilarious... wait 'til you see the LGA Piedmont crew room! *GAG!*
At least they are remodeling it right now. They will be finally replacing the furniture that has nasty stains that you would rather not find out what they are...eeeeew.
Did you guys take the crew room near gate 83 in the C terminal? The one that looks like a giant triangle?Our crew room in EWR isn't bad. A lot of comfy recliners and a big flat screen tv. Unfortunately, they mounted the tv where the recliners are so nobody can sleep. There's free coffee, fridge, microwave etc. Computers with restricted internet access. We have some lockers in the corner but I don't know what deal is with those. Oh yea there's also a shower. Basically a place to get away from the passengers and to hear the latest rumors.
Popcorn would be nice though.
that place is a ghost town. i had recurrent last month (still in the classroom down there) and nothing has been done with that space yet. no furniture except some old computer monitors left.Did you guys take the crew room near gate 83 in the C terminal? The one that looks like a giant triangle?
Heh. Been there and done that a time or two in ORD.One aspect of the crew room not mentioned is that it turn into the home address of about 1/3 of the commuters. Go in there in the evening and you'll find people in their pajamas with blankets and pillows from the aircraft. Many cover themselves (heads included) with the blankets to shield themselves from the noise and light. It's inexpensive but it's got to be brutal. AH! Usually said crewmembers are trying to scam rooms from crew scheduling so they can have a bed for the night.
