, up until the early part of this year, DL
had it's own Line Maintenance folks there. They would do the nightly turnaround Mx work on the jets, going over them with a fine-toothed comb every night, and other emergency sorts of work. After Superbowl, DL
axed that operation, and contracted it out to JettCare, the local commercial Mx company. So now, no daily, routine maintenance happens, just emergency stuff whenever an aircraft absolutely requires it. Downside to that is they charge over $200 for just the call-out, nevermind the labor. Have a few a-hole CRJ drivers who demand their windshield be cleaned immediately (usually in the 2 minutes before scheduled pushback), and Mx has to come out on the spot to do it...costs CommieAir $200 plus whatever the fee is for doing that. Pretty steep price for a stinkin gas-station window job!
Occasionally there's a diverted aircraft there for a major Mx gripe. In which case, DL
will send a few mechanics down, positive space, on the next leg, along with alot of tools/parts in the bin of whatever they're flying down. Usually only when it's a pretty big gripe though.
There are a few companies at JAX
that do Mx, JettCare, one of the FBO's, and Flightstar (major heavy Mx there). A few of those do line Mx for Air Whiskey and Indy Air, to name a few...usually just the smaller airlines.
