AE to close LAX pilot and flight attendant base

More than likely, this is just the beginning. No doubt the AE ramp will be outsourced also.

Perhaps the Eagle ramp would be outsourced, but I doubt it. Eagle's fleet service employees ratified their concessionary contract - the mechanics did not.

According to Garton, quoted in the article you linked, Eagle is hiring ramp employees so that it can take over former mainline TWU fleet service jobs that are being eliminated.

We currently are hiring flight attendants, mechanics and hundreds of ground employees needed to staff the new ground handling contracts.
