BFS seems to be sorting itself out. Menzies BFS was a holiday camp with poor structure and discipline, most issues since TUPE have involved poor timekeeping and attendance, lack of interest in other airlines other than EZY and a core of mixers on old aviance contracts stirring up trouble to get redundancy.
Most staff have seen the disruptive minority for what they are and are working towards hitting all targets
Is that so?

Virgin to Dnata and Germania to Airline Services.

Sign of how bad things are is that Virgin had its own dedicated team of loaders, gate staff and pushback etc from Swissport but still wasn't good enough

Swissport only handling agent at LGW to continue to lose airlines, everyone else Menzies, Aviator, Airline Services and now Dnata are gaining at Swissport's loss!

All stations are different, handling companies excel at one airport and not at another, all down to internal management setup. I blame airlines trying to drive down the cost of handling, making companies secure contracts at silly prices, only to provide a poor service to airline passengers. Its all about making money and not about performance, most baggage times at most airports in the UK are made to look better than they really are. Over the past few years there have been a rise in accidents at stations across the UK, jobs being under staffed, workers being over worked and in some cases not getting a suitable wage, baggage handlers wage has actually decreased over the past 15 years, it used to be a very good job with a good wage, but now every airline is subcontracting their handling just because it is a lot cheaper, hence more PROFITS !

WHEN WILL IT ALL STOP !!!
