Ramp Photos

Sat Jan 05, 2008 7:42 am

i am taking US airways flight from LAS-CLT-AVP. A319 then a PSA Crj 700. I was wondering what you guys think the odds were if I asked a ramp agent or other maintenance employee if I could get out there real quick and take a photo of the CRJ at CLT or Scranton? Of course I know they would have to escort me but should I throw in that im military? Thanks

If they're not using jetbridges in AVP, just take on then. US doesn't use them at AVL..

Why should you? Do you think it helps to get airside?

If no jetbrigdes are used at your stopover.....taking a picture won't be a problem. (get out of the bus, have your camera ready, snap one or two....)

They might loose their job, if they bring a non badged individual airside..........!

Not too long ago, if I wanted to bring someone out on the ramp, I just had to go get permission from a manager and they would give me an escort pass. I did this a couple of times for friends that were interested in seeing life on the ramp. Unfortunately procedures have changed and you must have a special SIDA badge that shows you have escort authority. It can only be done on a necessary basis meaning you must have a reason to escort someone. Therefore only supervisors and managers now have the authority.

It might be different at each airport, but I would say unless you are boarding from air stairs, your chances of getting a random employee to let you out on the ramp are zero.

Especially when you're asking an airline personnel. A few months ago I was taken onto the ramp by an AVL FD firefighter, but I seriously doubt an airline employee would have done the same.
