CLE set local MBR record for third time this year

CLE finished the month of September with a record-breaking mishandled baggage ratio (MBR) of 0.93, exceeding the previous low mark of 1.14 set in May.

CLE has met or exceeded its MBR goal each month and is currently operating at a 1.41 rate this year.

“Finishing a month below 1.00 is amazing,” said CLE Terminal Ops Director Louis Smilanich. “To have only 226 bag files on just under a quarter of a million enplanements is a testament to how well the Terminal Operations employees are performing their jobs.”

Louis noted that this achievement also involves the ATO and Hub Ops.

“We certainly want to thank the employees from both of these departments for their involvement,” he said. “As a station, we take a lot of pride in providing a great product to our customers, especially regarding baggage handling.”

Way to go guys! Not nearly enough credit is given to ramp workers for a job well done. I guess it's because the general public just doesn't understand the volume and complexity of the operation, and how many opportunities there are for something to go wrong moving a bag from flight to flight. It really is a wonder how so few bags are mishandled over the course of a year. It's because of the hard work and dedication from the guys under the wing, who are often never noticed.

And just to harp on the point as little more. Ramp workers really are the unsung heros of the airline industry. They really are the ones turning the cranks and pulling the levers of the operation. Don't let anyone fool you, ramp makes it all happen. Pilots flip switches, flight attendants serve drinks, and customer service is crowd control. The rampers here know what I'm talking about. I'm sure everyone else will object..

I really hope CLE keeps its status as a CO hub. I much prefer connecting there than at that pit otherwise known as EWR.

I agree, but CLE is always first for cuts and last for flight additions. Even though loads are good.

That is the joy of being the "hublette" for CO. It will be interesting to see how things shake out for CLE in the next couple of years.

Personally, my fingers are crossed for a non-stop to the EU from one of the *A carriers. Heck, even the LH Cargo opportunity from the 90s would be a great boost.

haha.. thats funny.. many times when we are pulling into the alley way the capt will say something like ... just waiting for our ground crew to get positioned.. .... that usually translates into.. just waiting for someone to go wake up the ground crew... patting yourself on the back is a good thing and yes the rampers also have a tough job.. I like to think its more of a team effort among all employees that keep the operation running.

The lack of a positive comment from our CO associate(s) who stampede to condescend in their posts about the CLE operation whenever possible is noted.....
