That website is about as sensational as they come. Pilots and flight attendants have made the very rare real occurrence of cabin odor nearly impossible to diagnose as they write up smelly cabins to avoid having to fly to stick it to the company.

Crew member here, this is a terrible idea. My first airline was a scheduled pt. 135 operator. We had a station with crew housing as opposed to hotel rooms and it was by no means anything I would want to deal with ever again. Money savings aside, everything else absolutely sucked.

A captains pay scale flying the exact model aircraft should never have to be compared to an FO's at another airline in this market.
