With the recent revelation regarding pilots who may have fallen asleep during a flight and overshot their destination.Â I found this interesting report from Los Angles radio station KABC.Â They sent the sexy intern Bernadette out to parking lot B to speak with pilots regarding sleeping in RV's in an airport owned parking lot that sits just below one of the approach paths.Â For just $60 per month pilots can park an RV and use it for layovers. Often with short turnarounds between flights it is faster to catch a shuttle over to Lot B than it is to catch a hotel shuttle, check in, and then return to the airport after resting. See Google Map below. Zoom out to see relationship with runways 25 Left and Right, the longest at LAX, and used by the big heavy jets.
A recent survey by Westin Hotels & Resorts found that 51% of US travelers would rather have a good night's sleep than great sex.
The question asked of about 12,500 travelers in a dozen countries was "Which is more important to you, a perfect night's sleep, or great sex?" Canadian travelers were the only regional group that picked sex over sleep by 52%. So What keeps us from getting a good nights sleep?? PDA's 60%, Bills 58%, Spouse or Partner 25%.
The publication of this survey is being used to promote that Westin has partnered with the National Sleep Foundation to launch a toll-free sleep hotline, (888) TIME-4-SLEEP, and webpage click here. The number will be manned by sleep professionals during the peak hours when people experience problems sleeping. The webpage offers a variety of information on sleep related problems, the causes and solutins.
