"it saves money, yada yada yada"
You will never see one because there is no such thing. (and even if there was one, they could just change it tomorrow. tough times, bad economy, high fuel, Richard needs a new car.....doesn't really matter why)
......on the Ramp? I would have to say that, at least between AA
/DL and UA
|Quoting dlramp4life (Reply 6):|
With FLL down the road? Why should DL have mainline in MIA and FLL even though FLL sees more traffic...
uhh....really? What does FLL
or any other airport have to do with mainline staffing at MIA
? Its about mainline flights a day. MIA
has ~25 flights a day, all of which are mainline. I don't have the AA
/UA contracts on hand, but I am fairly sure that would case the station to be mainline for both. For comparison, SAN
has ~20 mainline flights and 6 CR7s to LAX
. (and RDU
is, IIRC the larger station that isn't mainline, and DL
are pretty big at RDU
now. IIRC flights to all the hubs minus SLC
I can promise you, both union contracts at UA
don't say anything about "company may outsource if airport is close to another with more traffic" Hey NWAESC did your IAM contract say anything like this? my guess is no.
Now, my question for your DLramp, should Delta get to outsource LGA
ramp and keep only JFK
mainline because it has the most seats? I mean, LGA
are right next door......
Delta "should" be at about the same number of stations as AA
/UA. (and I'd say even more, I mean how much money does RR
save Delta that UA
/AA don't get?...)
