The Company is trying to pull a fast one on Customer Service
IAM to keep Pushbacks & Cleaners.
Ramp to get Express language. Company had to become more productive with these latest rounds of concessions to survive. Hard to believe that, by giving the Fleet Service the express language when they had none is being more productive.
To allow the Company to have 2 mainline flights into every express city is to allow the pilots to have jobs, the flight attendants to have jobs, but no customer service jobs for mainline agents.
Customer Service would lose hundreds of Jobs WAKE UP PEOPLE.
Great try Jerry but it is time for you to go back to your Union Busting Job at Ford & Harrison ( Creative Workplace Solutions) you have ruined enough lives around here.
Don't let the door hit you in the #ss on the way out.
Ford & Harrison WE Take Peoples Job that is what we do and we like doing our work

Biff,
I have to tell you, I don't need a high dollar emp. to lead me into my gate. Nor to clean my plane. Nor push the a/c off the gate.
Yes, we need mech. to cover the gates at the large airports to clear the log book.
Contract the rest of it out. We won't miss a hart beat.

And we don't need a high priced baby sitter in the cockpit either. Contract all flights 500 miles or less to Mesa. [BR][BR]If you live in a glass house don't throw stones.

I was checking flights from ABE to TPA for next November. The only mainline flight shown is the morning flight to CLT and the evening return from CLT. PIT service has ERJ's instead of current 737 service.

Orbitz is showing much lower fares for Delta and Northwest than the US fares on either Orbitz or USAirways.com.

Itrade,

I believe Biff was replying to this comment by Atlantic:

And his reply was not that we don't need a Pilot...but don't need a "high dollar emp" in the cockpit. Everyone can be contracted out.....and while we are at it...so can Dave, so lets stop throwing stones at each other.

Biff,
Next time you are near a bus, look at it and tell it to lower it's flaps. Something tells me you will lose your voice before you see the flaps coming down.

[BR][BR]Biffe, you need pilots in the cockpit during flight operations.[BR][BR]You DO NOT need an A&P mechanic to walk out an aircraft from the gate.

[BR][BR]On another subject, nice to see a post from rvolkcpa[STRONG]. [/STRONG]Don't think I've seen a post from you since [A href="http://www.planebusiness.com/"]www.planebusiness.com[/A] das.

program the computer and the bus will take off, fly to its destination and land, Airbus even had one taxi itself by putting sensors in a test on the runway and taxiway.

Atlantic,

When one looks in the cockpit and sees newspapers and magazines strewn around and pillows up there what is one to think?

Could this be why pilots do not want cameras in the cockpit?

Hmm, A pilot flying touches the controls 50 feet and then talks on the radio, 12 hours across the pond with the A/P doing all the flying, real tough.[BR][BR]And why dont you walk a mile in someone's shoes before you cast stones?[BR]Ever crawl into a fuel tank to clean it? Crawl into the hellhole of a 737-200 to clean up spraying skydrol? Everyone has downtime during the day. Take the time to learn someone elses job before you point the finger.
