The biggest way to save money on fuel is to stay away from signature flight support. 5.96 a gallon yesterday in SFO talk about f**king price gouging. We all should stick together and boycott buying fuel and or even going to their fbo unless it is a absolute must. I dont ever buy gas there and never will, and avoid them at all cost. I hate them with a passion

Highest prices and the worst service. Everyone I know tries to avoid them.

5.52 in BWI, and that was PRE-Katrina. We topped off (heading to FL), but didnt make their minimum gallon upload, so we were still charged the "handling fee" ($160?). :eek:

i thought everyone felt this way but I work at an FBO that competes with signature on the field and although we have brought in a chunk of their business, signature still gets some good traffic. They will continue to dominate if people give them the business. Also our prices are significantly less and we have a brand new facility and bigger ramp.

We do avoid them like the plague unless we have no choice and usually the ramp/handling fee is less than their ridiculously priced fuel. We have even tried to work out an arrangement for a "fair" ramp fee versus using other fbo's but they apparently do not care.

There's no such thing as a quick turn @ Signature. Notice that they stick to airports with little or no competition (CLT,IAD, etc.). They have been price gouging for years. But what gets me the most is you cannot just drop someone off, and go. You have to come inside and go through all the paperwork. What a mess!

Yup, Signature No Support sucks.

Did you notice that they are no longer in the top 5 FBO chains according to Profilactic Pilot?
I guess they stopped paying off the right people.

I agree with you completely however you can breath a sigh of relief. Signature is no longer the FBO at CLT. I hope that makes you feel better. Makes me feel better. Maybe the service will get better

Finally, others who voice their displeasure with Signature. Other airports should follow CLT's lead and make a change to increase services. Judging from the reviews on airnav, Wilson Air Center is miles ahead of Signature @ CLT! All you can do is not use them and discourage others not to as well.

I am glad i am not the only one who royally hates signature. evertime i have no choice and have to buy gas i feel like calling the police and telling them that i have been robbed. i think next time i will say this to the manager there and ask if he has heard of fuel price gouging.

Signature MIA just matched my fuel price at Turse Air And waived the ramp fee.. I guess competition is a good thing, GM there said they're feeling the heat of Mercury's and Millionair's nationwide growth..

Signature has consistently been the highest priced fuel and provides average service to anyone other than Netjets etc. I ended up at IAD couple of summers ago, waited 1+35 for fuel before the General Manager acutally came out and pumped it himself. I was livid! We get pumped in the rear-end / gouged everytime we put our tires onto their ramp. Look forward to a day when the high tech paper security slip does not cost me an additional $1.00 / gal for wages & benefits to some security person, typically overweight & asleep.

Regards.

It's already a well beaten horse that SFS sucks. Most everyone I know avoids them like the plague. The biggest thing I have against them is that I feel like I'm contributing to NetJets, and forget about having a decent seat in the crew lounge or a spot on a computer in one of these places. The NetJets pilots take over the place like a swarm of locusts.

Don't be so sensitive, he's right... Are you the one personally paying the fuel bill ? If not, who cares ? Especially if you've made the boss aware of the financial benefits of avoiding them. Tell them that you could save them X amount of money by avoiding Signature and if they don't care why should you ???
