Who Is Getting Pia

looks like servisair will be doing the PIA.....lets hope they have fixed the toilets this time, so you won't need a gas mask to get the bags out of the rear pit.......last time it was like a honey cart ...with wings.

Servisair will be handling PIA as they never officially "lost" the contract before, PIA had to reduce their schedule into the UK due to a number of their other aircraft not being allowed into the EU. Servisair will continue to handle as if nothing had happened.

Aviance, Air Asia and GermanWings, all from their base at cargo!

Pia Contract
a memo on servisairs restroom wall at STN says they have got PIA. Not too sure what is happening at servisair,but I personally overheard their ramp manager at the smoking shed say that they had wrongly assumed that they had automatically retained the pia contract.Capt Wannabe is correct when he says that the contract is still up for grabs

What makes you think it is just Servisair that messes up Sat 1 ?

Speak to your Aviance DMs re the redundancies 4 weeks ago and now the company having by law to offer the guys their jobs back having won the Asia X contract.

Aviance work is some mysterious ways !! Dont forget they gave up there pax handling licence a few years back, they have done exactly the same at LGW recently,and work out of a cargo shed for both places!!.

Now they make experienced DM's redundant just as they sign German Wings and AirAsia!!! and now you say by law they have to re-employ them, I bet they are not re-employed as DM's......sounds very shrewd to me!!!!
