WN historical aircraft turn time gate usage has slowed down since the introduction of the 737-800NG/MAX8. WN use to on average turn 12 planes per gate. With the addition of the 800/MAX8 it is now down to 9 per gate. This is because it takes 20 minutes longer to turn a 800 vs 700. That is an interes...

If they get rid of the benefits they will have the same issues struggling with high turnover just like every other ground hand...
