Question Servisar/American Airlines STN

Overheard a conversation at the smoking hut that American are in talks with servisair, as they did hold the divert contract once upon a time. AA staff also been spotted being shown around in servisair van, any truth in the rumour. I hope so cos id be back to them like a shot. Whats it like at servisair now, what are the staff like, hows moral, is the training and equipment as good as it used to be........shink or shink not

I Would Be Back To Servisair Like A Shot.

THE BLOKES ARE THE SAME, ONLY OLDER WITH A POLISH ACCENT----THE EQUIPMENT IS THE SAME ONLY OLDER {no polish accent} THE MORALE IS LOWER THAT A SNAKES BKS.AND YOU WOULD COME BACK SERVISAIR LIKE A SHOT.--------YOU SHOULD BE.

The answer to your question is no, they are not talking to them

You should know better than to listen to the crap spoken at the smoking hut

Yobs

I would just like to put forward my thoughts on this thread. Firstly i would like to say that there is no solid basis for the rumor that AA may be parting company with Swissport to seek a better service else where. This seems to have been started by some little scamp who needs a bloody good cuff to the ear.

Secondly could people please adhere to the topic in question and not respond to threads with sporadic bouts of knavish rubbish as this makes me jolly cross!

Now if you will excuse me im off to count my vast amount of money.

Yours faithfully, your social better

No way, British Airways business model is based around Heathrow and will be for a considerable time. I know this as i spoke to a senior person at BA a few weeks ago and asked about other airports and was given a firm response that BA is basically LHR airways and they like it like that for many reasons. But maybe im wrong!!

Devil AA and circus air

AA Tried them once before and stn not just diverts but full handling once tried never to return. the way things are going for them i think swissport will have a few more staff if they need them.

Devil

I heard myself from Swissport ramp agents that AA are not entirely happy with the handling that they recieve. I'm only going by what i heard so i wonder if any one out there can support this theory. If any one from swissport can clarify this then that would be great.

Servisair managers are off to Manchester for discussions some time this week or next to find out whether or not they may have to make redundencies! We shall see

can't see how there is going to be redundancies, when s/air are just about coping with the work now when it comes in.don't forget its paytalk time, how the company loves their doom and gloom talks this time of year.Even when maxjet goes its only a few months and then they will be recruiting for the summer.they will probably get rid of some front of house staff and some managers which would make sense, how they love people in white shirts walking about doing next to nothing.Lots of talk of redundancies lets just wait and see.
