They are pulling the MEM MD11 R24's into Hotel Standby as well, both seats. I guess they are either trying to waste money or they have a shortage of reserves. The ones that I have seen in standby have done just that, standby. Nothing like a Company so worried about costs that they spend thousands on needless hotel and per diem ?
