    An article from last summer about allegedly less than ideal procedures for dealing with bed bugs at American Airlines: The article makes the point that the crew bunks in the ceiling act as a focal point for infestations of aircraft:

    There have been cases within the last month where American has simply hauled off infested mattresses from crew bunks, sealed off the area and then allowed the plane to continue flying with passengers and crew on board. In other words, bed bugs were able to continue to make their way into other areas of the aircraft and come into contact with passengers, crew and their personal belongings.
