In one of the many attempts to reduce costs, DL allowed OH/OPS to handle the below wing handling in MIA, EYW to name 2 stations I know. What will happen with those contracts? Is EYW handling going to be contracted?
Is DL MIA planning to open below the wing OPS again?

I believe the ground ops were spun into a new company (Regional Elite) which is unaffected by the OH closing.

I thought that was all getting rolled into RHS/REAS, but I could be wrong on that. I think the idea was to eliminate the separate OH, EV, 9E ground handling and have it all under one roof, so presumably the few remaining independent OH stations would just become REAS now.

Is that a DL subsidiary like DGS? ROMEO HOTEL SIERRA

I believe so, at least it still is according to Wikipedia. I lose track of all the subsidiaries and spinoffs these days quite frankly. I do know it was meant to consolidate and streamline below wing ops, but that's all I know for sure.

I was under the impression DL had their own below wing ops in MIA

Perhaps THIS has some bearing on what is happening?

Regional Elite was formed with the "fusing" of Comair & Mesaba's ACS employees (technically CP as well, though they don't have any)...

Negative. Not sure how long it's been farmed out on the DL side, but NW had it's own ramp staff there until BK... FLL has been staffed by both all along, FWIW...

It's now official that REAS will be closing, with Delta Global Services bidding for contracts at former REAS stations. I believe REAS also provided ground handling for UA/CO at MIA.
