So now we are mid way through December... is there only one handling agent (swissport) handling all airlines at NCL?

5% down that's quite a bit.
Anybody know any reason for this maybe?

I hope they aren't all Swissport.

Airport staff in pre-Christmas strike - BBC News

Check-in staff, baggage handlers and cargo crew at 18 UK airports plan 48-hour strike from 23 December in a pay row, the Unite Union says.
More than 1,500 workers at Swissport, the world's largest ground and cargo handler, are staging the walkout following a long-running dispute over pay and conditions.
-----------

The Unite Union seems to be trying to cause trouble everywhere.
Come back Maggie, we need you.

Didn't Swissport take over all the contracts from Aviator recently?

Anyone know who handles BA at NCL?

I have to say, I have a lot of sympathy for striking workers. (Despite considerable inconvenience this time, as I'm flying to LHR on the 23rd, and later on hoping to travel on Southern Rail to Sussex, exposing me to at least 3 strikes so far, and I wouldn't bet against something hitting TFL too!). Between wages, working conditions, and insecurity of employment, I really get the impression that things are at breaking point, and the guys at the bottom are being asked to carry the can.

Be careful where you say that because in certain parts of the North/ North East you'll be (how can I put it?) 'Lynched'!

She may have smashed the Miners' Unions but she devastated and divided Communities leaving them with no future, no hope....nothing.

I'm not getting into prolonged political arguments, this isn't the place (despite my comment ) but a lot of these communities were based on economies that were so inefficient thanks to unions demands that they had no future anyway.
Look at the current train strikes. Even Unite members are saying they are politically motivated.

Good luck to all those with Xmas travel plans.

Yes Swissport took over the Aviator contracts as well as the operations staff.

Swissport is the only handling agent for commercial passenger flights, so BA is handled by Swissport. However some of the check in staff have contracts with BA and not directly employed by Swissport.

No, there are 2 handling agents at NCL, Swissport and Samson Aviation Services. Samson only deal with private flights though.
