AA Ground Staff Question

Thu Jul 05, 2012 8:15 am

What titles do AA Ground-staff hold?

CSA "Customer Service Agent"?
PSA "Passenger " " "?

And what are the supervisors called?
Just "Supervisor"? or "Flight Managers"? (like we do here at LH?)

I've always wondered.
Worked on: A300,310,319,320,321,332,333,342,343,346,380,B732/3/4/5,744,DC10 -- Currently working on: A380 only

PSA is Passenger Service Agent. I believe CSA and PSA are the same thing and are used interchangeably.
My opinions, statements, etc. are my own and do not have any association with those of any employer.

Rampers are referred to as "fleet service clerks," with the lead being called the "crew chief."
AA gate & ticket agents are refereed to as "airport agents."

I've almost always heard it referred to as "passenger service agent/supervisor/lead/"

FWIW, my title is "Station agent" at the MQ outstation, and I do everything. Though at hubs, MQ agents work the same shifts and with similar uniforms as AA folks, with a crew chief, fleet service clerk, passenger service agents, and the like. Terminal B at DFW, and Concourse G at ORD plus parts of the LAX, DCA, LGA, JFK, and MIA workforce are all MQ employees though their ticket counters and gates will be doing the exact same thing as the AA agent/gate/ticket counter next door.

In DTW Regional Elite CSA's wear the Delta uniform while working the gate in the B terminal.

In PHX Piedmont handles US Express flights, both ramp and customer service wear US uniforms.

I guess that would explain why DECS shows the closeout as being done by the "crew chief" even though we use the term "team lead." I could never figure that one out.
Tiny, unreadable text leaves ample room for interpretation.
