Great video! Brings back memories. I sure wish we had had a/c that we could stand up in the bins.

This reminds me that this is a good time to say this. To most of us that worked at the airlines, the rampys are our heroes, especially to those of us that worked in cargo. If you had a good relationship with them, they'd load anything you wanted on their flights and we appreciate that.
We had that relationship at SLC but I understand that ATL cargo did not have a good rapport with their ramp. I hope that is changing.

One time in MCO, the cargo people pulled up to our gates with 8 carts filled with over 300 boxes of flowers. They demanded we put them all on one flight to detroit... that flight had about 220 bags on it already so naturally we refused and chose to spread them out over 2-3 of our remaining flights that day. There was some aruging over that but, in the end, we did what we wanted to do.

I especially liked the shot of the 16-year-old captain in the terminal. Gotta love commuter carriers!

The snowy ramp parts of the video remind me of my recently-ended days as Aircraft Maintenance tech with Swissport, here in Anchorage. Nothing quite like pushing a 747 through six inches of snow!

We loaded 3000 lbs of ferns on a MD88 a few weeks ago. Luckily there wasn't that many bags.

Yes, I do. I had a hard time standing there, in a 727, bent over and it killed me, even with knee pads, to be on my knees.

Who works Cargo down in MCO? Is it outsourced, or or do you have NWA employees accepting and sorting it?

There's nothing you can show me about how to do a quick turn. How about this? Park the plane, unload it, go upstairs and clean it, come back down and load it and push it out, all within 30 minutes. That's how we at DL did it at a small station. BTW, I AM talking about a 737 or 727.

Let me guess, as a fellow So Cal member, you proceeded to look at now frozen gatorade and thought either:

A) Slushie
B)Explitive(s)
C)Chucked it somewhere to melt

Or some combo of the above.
