Azjubilee, I can see why you would want wing walkers at C25, the gopher area is too close to the gate in my opinion. However, with 9E
doing a straight in parking at the even B, there is nothing you can hit, still, they sit there until they get their two wingwalkers.
It would be sweeeet to get to spend a day with a pilot, but thanks to the FAA, this isn't possible, correct? And, about you guys spending a day with us, it seems a lot of XJ
pilots are ex-rampers, and therefore know very good what we go through. As far as the marshaller, we see some of these characters out here...unfortunately.
And about the fuel, I can see why they would turn around if they were low on fuel, but it seems 9E
's minimums are lower than XJ

returning on Saturday and CMX yesterday. Didn't get out of here until 1 AM
. And then back at 5:30 AM
for another great day at MSP
Shows how much I like my job.
