baggage
 
I think it is a bit harsh to call human beings "ramp rats" they are working to make a living.I got my start in aviation as a "ramp rat" and it taught me alot on how an airline is run and what I would like to do with my life.Yes , they are guilty of theft but theft comes in many different forms.....is lying when filing your taxes theft?
all the best gents

ramp rat!!??
 
i used to be a ramp rat and that's what we called ourselves and others that worked with us.

didn't offend me a bit.

duck feathers are required.

now that i fly airplanes-i'm a bus driver!!!

lighten up a bit.

the real value is in the work you do, not the titles or names.

i was the best ramp rat and now aim to be the best bus driver. used to fill soda machines and i did that good as well.

Be careful what you wish for in terms of asking for more stringent security checking of airside staff. You really think pilots and cabin crew never go home with trolleys full of stolen loot? If one group of workers is going to get searched, you can bet your bottom dollar we're ALL going to get searched.

And some people bitch non-stop about it as it is. :rolleyes:

If its good enough for ramp bods then lets apply the same rule to aircrew.

It seems to me that this thieving from pax and the behaviour from the so called security guys at BHX is acceptable to some here who have a view on the matter. Why? You at it too??

There is NO single excuse I can think of that excuses anyone from taking coke and dealing in drugs or stealing from innocent pax and not bothering to do the job they were employed to do. The job is so neglected as to make it farcical and dangerous!

Each one of those people on the programme should have been summarily dismissed and reported to the police. Were they?

And this:

Unbelievable!

Additional Flights
 
Unlisted additional flights To Las Palmas today are:-IWD3455 & XLA353
Are these flights one-offs, or additions for the season?

D-ABBT 10th Jun 2007 20:20

Well Said Sat1, If Its Searches For "Baggies" then it should be the same for ALL airside workers that come into contact with aircraft or bags, this includes Security workers. We have all been checked by the police to gain our airside passes, so we are all the same. Check one, Check All!!!!!

Think the IWD and XLA flights are one-off for the ITT Conference (Institute of Travel and Tourism)

tommyc2005 11th Jun 2007 10:55

LPA
 
The IWD is on behalf of Thomas Cook. It is running all season though it was originally scheduled for Mondays.

The XLA is also running all season and has been scheduled and on sale through XL since last summer. Just checked and its not on BAA's charter timetable on the website, but there are other omissions so its obviously not too reliable.

Mr Flaps 11th Jun 2007 12:51

XLA at LPA
 
XL airways have a flight every saturday to LPA. It goes at around 4 in the afternoon.

Stanstedeye 11th Jun 2007 18:37

LPA
 
Thank you TOMMYc2005, & Mr FLAPS.
Out of interest TOM4923 to LPA did not operate today. Should have landed at 17.50, no record at STN.

Mr Flaps 12th Jun 2007 14:45

TOM LPA & Maxjet
 
The Thomsonfly to LPA goes on Monday morning at 8:15. Unless we have another one during the week which we dont know about.

Does any one else think that MaxJet are biting off more than they can chew at the mo. With one A/C down and they are using a leased 757 from a basketball team to run the IAD.
They plan to run LAX by the end of August and have not had any more planes delviered to them.

D-ABBT 12th Jun 2007 21:25

Dont Forget The Miami Air B738 Mr.Flaps :hmm:!!!! But i can see where you are coming from, will be interesting too see what happens. As we say "i wont believe it until i see the white of the captains eyes coming up stand"

Mr Flaps, What DO you mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr Flaps 14th Jun 2007 08:50

RE Maxjet
 
Sorry if I was not clear I will try again.
Is the airline trying to expand too quickly? With aging unreliable aircraft that have developed a habit of leaving debris on the runway.
The leased 757 is causing them problems already. The door would not open for some reason the other morning.
They are expecting to open a new route to LAX in August but are still short of aircraft to fly the route. They are struggling to fly their current routes.

D-ABAA 14th Jun 2007 16:07

Mr Flaps I see where your coming from, the only solution for Maxjet would be to lease another craft mabe the Miami Air will make a return to fly the route?

On a seperate note, i heard today that Easyjet have given a final warning to Swissport to improve there standards at Stansted.

We would all be interested to know what are the aspects of particular concern.
