This is going seem like a left field question, way left but how does the fueler give the amount of fuel he put onboard to the pilot. Is it thru you guys, does he give it to the pilot himself or and this is what I really want to know. Is there some sort of line from the cockpit that hangs out with a board to write the fuel load on. To which the pilot then can yank up the line and into the cockpit to read.
I'm asking this because the airline i work for is trying to make it more efficienct i guess you can say for the pilots to get the fuel load and I was talking to one of the fuelers that was working my flight and he mentioned that SWA has a system in which a line is hung from the cockpit and the fueler would write on the board what he put into the plane. Anyway, any info on this would be great. Thanks in advance.
