Probably not exactly what they were talking about by 'big announcement', but I just read in our local paper that FL is no longer going to be doing ground handling here at MLI. It will be done by Quad City Aviation Services LLC, which is the same company that does fueling and also who works the charters when they come in. Apparently it will be a cost saving measure, and all employees will be offered their jobs with the same pay and benefits, with the exception of flight benefits, of course. Needless to say I was a little surprised and I feel a little sorry for all the FL employees here in the Quad Cities.
