If you take a look at Jay Selman's photos from MIA
he obviously has ramp access but I don't think he actually works on the ramp. They allow him to use a US Airways truck to cruise around and I'm pretty sure he is allowed to bring buddies (or maybe just some exceptions). Again, I don't want to speak for anyone but when Joe Pries visits MIA
he has a friend that is a great photographer and is/was high up at MIA
so that certainly helps. I'm not positive on the actual relationships and positions but the point is in some cases it is having long time friends.
