US / HP Wage Questions

One issue I've been thinking about is how wages will be equalized across a newly-merged company. I don't know the pay scale for US ramp employees, <acronym title="America West Airlines (USA)">HP</acronym> starts at $7.25 an hour with the lucky people getting a geography differential, and <acronym ti...

RE: US Airways And America West To Merge

Actually the new airline would be bigger than Southwest, it would replace WN as the 6th largest carrier in the United States.

RE: New DHL Hub At March ARB, CA(KRIV)

So is this going to be a very large DHL hub, or just a regional one? Wouldn't it make sense for DHL to have a large hub on the west coast serve the same purpose as Wilmington?

RE: New News For PDX 2005?

I don't know which ones you are referring to, there are two very large rounded ones at the west end of the air cargo center which are visible for literally miles, one is used for painting aircraft and the other I believe is used by Skywest. I have not heard anything about the hangers actually on air...

RE: New News For PDX 2005?

The rumor I've heard is that the Air Guard / Air Reserve base south of the main terminal and adjacent to the air cargo center is to be phased out and swallowed up by the airport proper. What's an interesting thought is that with all the large hangars the Air Force used for maintenance on tankers and...

RE: Who Taxies Planes For Maintenance?

The person on board not only has to operate the brakes, they also have to communicate with the FAA tower for clearance to move, start the APU and monitor the aircraft for any maintenance issues.

RE: Who Taxies Planes For Maintenance?

Often the airport will have its own certified maintenance personnel who are contracted with the carriers who don't have maintenance crew on station.

RE: Janet Airlines To Area 51.

Who knows, they are old though, what is that, a 737-200? Or is it even older?
Layton, Utah - that's Hill Air Force Base. Makes sense.

RE: AS Ramp Crew Let Go

Unfortunate, I have never really liked "ground handling companies", while most aren't as bad as Evergreen...I like when companies employ their own rampers. I know that Menzies works <acronym title="Alaska Airlines (USA)">AS</acronym> in <acronym title="Portland - International (PDX / KPDX), USA - Or...

RE: A Second Airport For Atlanta?

I think the Atlanta metro area size and population conversation is a bit redundant, I would say the majority of the traffic at <acronym title="Atlanta - Hartsfield-Jackson International (The William B Hartsfield) (ATL / KATL), USA - Georgia">ATL</acronym> is not local customers but transfers from fl...

I work ramp for <acronym title="America West Airlines (USA)">HP</acronym> and of course I've heard a lot of talk about this recently.
