On the US side, I believe ramp and lav servicing are done by mainline employees; deicing is contracted and I suspect cargo is contracted as well.

How did the CBA change?

PMUS has mainline ramp at MSP, AA had a vendor, now PMUS is doing the ramp now.
 
Keep stirring the pot.

Did you not say they are performing AA work?
 
Stirring the pot, how is that?

It is not AA work as under the Ramp CBA it doesnt meet the flight activity for it to be staffed by AA.
 
Can you not read and comprehend?
 
I clearly stated AA had a vendor doing the work, not AA employees, now US is handling it.

That is why it was a question
 
I think US mainline does the AA ramp now
 
Yes they do
 
Your Lordship, does that mean USAir ramp workers are performing AA ramp work at that  location now?

When MSP ramp for LAA was outsourced it originally went to Eagle.  Sometime in the past year LAA simply hired LUS as the vendor to handle the currently outsourced LAA ramp at MSP.  LUS is not doing LAA work, it is simply working the LAA flights on a ground handling contract.  I'm quite sure that if and when a CBA goes through the combined schedule is large enough that MSP will be mainline both above and below the wing.

JAFA,
 
Thanx MUCH for responding.
Sometimes I'm not the 'brightest bulb on the Tree, and this is one of those times, sooooo could you define further, what you mean by LAA.....and LUS.   I 'think' what your saying is that some portion of US Airways is doing the ground work for both AA and US Airways.  Perhaps LAA and LUS is meant to be 'Legacy AA' and 'Legacy US'.
 
Again, Thanx !
