I've often wondered how airlines handle airport staffing in HUB cities where more than one airport is served. For example, does AA simply swing DFW employees over to DAL to run operations, or does DAL have dedicated AA employees completely separate from DFW? Same scenario for:


And of course any others I may have failed to recall.

They would require a separate SIDA (Security Identification Display Area, IIRC) badge for each airport they work at. So no, a DFW-issued SIDA badge would not work at DAL.

So..there many differences on SIDA measures between a mega airport and a domestic HUB.
How employees can be prepared for the differences?

I think between DFW and DAL are many differences on SIDA measures. If i was an employee, i would like to be considered a training for the distinct airports.

With unions involved, you can't simply shift employees...people can volunteer but in the end union seniority rules...

Any employee can hold mutiple SIDA badges.....I had a DTW and an IAD badge when I was with DH. As far as seniority is concerned, why not just put DAL shifts on a DFW bid? DAL staffing would then be seniority compliant.

At BA our ID's can be used to operate out of any of the UK's airports.

BA flies out of both LHR or LGW, but crew belong to only one of 3 'fleets'.

They are LHR Worldwide, flying longhaul detinations from LHR. LHR Eurofleet, flying domestic/european routes from LHR. And Single Fleet LGW which operate domestic, european and long haul services from LGW.

We all work to different agreements & working practices so we don't tread on each others turf  Wink

In the D.C. area UA has seperate employees staffed at all 3 area airports. IAD/DCA/BWI.

I wish UA flew mainline to MYR, that way you wouldn't be stuck in a smelly Saturn for 12 hours.
