LA International Airport has a parking lot just for the airline industry workers that live in RVs, in the few moments they are in LA, and not off to parts unknown

An employee parking lot turned motor-home park made up of pilots, flight attendants and mechanics.

The lot was created at least a decade ago as an airport-sponsored program offering airline employees a place to rest before heading to their next destination. Today, however, the airport is actively seeking ways to re-appropriate the space where the community is situated and has slowly, and steadily, reduced the number of its residents.

The next destination for many of the lot’s residents is unknown. As a result of pursuing their dream of working in the aviation industry, with its transient lifestyle, many of the parking lot’s residents are estranged from their families. They are largely a community of people living alone, together — and most now consider the lot “home.”
