I’d accept that argument if I hadn’t experienced the same on perceived “expensive” airlines
Nowadays, most of the 'expensive' airlines are expecting extremely low handling charges, however, Gulf Julliet Papa make a very salient point in that the Handling agents are agreeing to take on contracts a silly low prices and often with extreme penalty clauses. I'm not sure why this is although I suspect that the caliber of people within the Handling agent contract departments is not very high and are lacking in business acumen. All too often they are keen to sign on the line without actually getting out of their office and seeing what the job actually entails leaving the guys on the ground to carry out the contract with woefully inadequate resources.
