United turns to NASCAR for efficiency lessons
Airline learns from pit crews how to get planes quickly back in the air

In the pits, it's a race against the clock. But these frenzied crew members aren't working the NASCAR circuit, they're in training for their real jobs as members of United Airlines' ground crews.

They're not docking Chevy Monte Carlos, but jetliners — unloading the luggage, servicing them, getting them ready for the next trip.

They've come to "Pit Crew U" in Mooresville, N.C., to sharpen their efficiency skills and make their airline more competitive.

There was a post about this some time ago. Is UA doing this again or is it still part of the original program?
