As739x,

I'll try my best. I think we need manager's approval (that's only if the flight isn't full). If you get a chance, come over and see me once in a while.

Yes, Im at Alaska. My office is on the ramp under gate 20 looking towards USAriways, International A, and half of Continentals gates.If you have a ramp badge you can come down. Depending on the time I can show you a plane if you do have a badge. Day time is busy, but night when the RON's are here it easier. I will be on morning shift soon though.

Are you officially an FL employee? My girlfriend and I will be flying FL from CAK-BOS on June 7th. Can't wait.

Congrats 744. I hope you enjoy your new job. AS739X, just out of curiosity, are you from CAK? That is where my family is from, so I am just curious.

My family was from East Akron. My grandpa played hoops at the University of Akron, and broke all the records there. His number is retired there. Mike Harkins was his name, and that is my name as well. So yeah, its great to see another Akron person on here.

I'm more california boy that got stuck in N. Canton for 14 years.
I love to follow what they have done with CAK. I'd like to see them bring in another mainline carrier though. I'm looking forward to going back there and see the new stuff.

Hey, you going to the airshow at Moffet this weekend?

AS739x- No, unfortunately, I am not. I wish I could go though, the Moffett airshow wouldve been a great one to go to. CAK is definitely growing though, FL has quite an operation out of there now, which is great to see. I was just over there about a month ago, and the growth is amazing out of there.

744, you must work for the handling agent then if you're going to handle SQ001/002 (I think its called Signature Aviation), they handle all the SQ flights, as there isn't many SQ staff at SFO.

If you do, HAVE A BLAST ON THE PLANE!!! Go take a look around. I love SQ and the 747 and that flight (its like a plane to take me to my home away from home). and I will let you know if I am taking that anytime soon (probably not since I am in BOS and will take the EWR-SIN non stop).

SFO is my most favorite airport to fly in and out of internationally due to the nice terminal and usually empty customs and immigration when i am there.
