This isn't only for UA or only at DEN.

Like he said, at almost every airport with significant amount of traffic there is a ramp controller that has a plan for everything. Yes, it's a non-movement area, but aircraft can't just go or do whatever they want. I'm sure in the situation you saw there was a reason for it.

Folks, I know about the various pushback techniques and the terminal area ground controller. This was unique, all of UA planes are only pushed back tail straight and, I watched for hours. It was just interesting, most similar airports such as ATL they push back into the direction the aircraft is going,but not DIA.
|Quoting William (Reply 8):|
was hoping somebody from the UA ramp in Denver would chime in.
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 10):|
Out here pushback operators need to be qualified & certified by both the Airline & the Airports authority.How is it in other places.
