Looks as though SKW is flying cover for ASA while we try to get mtc under ctrl. Today we have cxld 21 flts as of 1330. Looks as though 15 of which are due to mtc and 6 flts marked as transfer of flying. This delay code is new: 7DDLFC-TRANSFER OF EV FLYING TO PP
One example would be ATL-OKC this Saturday 3/21.
Flights 9412/9413/9408 are now being operated SKW and were skd to be operated by ASA.

I know who OO is, I don't know who PP is.

the mtc issues have nothing to do with a union drive and everything to do with damage and bad luck. every damage means a mechanic cant fix a broken plane and have to repair damage. i know i have had 3 'damage' reports by atl rampers in the last month. none were anything more than missing paint or a year old ding. all three required a mechanic to come out, research it and then say it was good to go. im sure the sav and tlh deals didnt help.

I'll bet this is due to the TLH fire mostly... That plane is done. What is the deal with the SAV plane? Not back in service yet?

I was on a SBNATL flight yesterday, and the SBN gate agents said that when they showed up yesterday, the ASA flights were whacked and it was SKW9415.

Talking to the FA coming into ATL (an ORD UA operation F/A; cute too) she said they ferried planes and crews from hell and back to get the airplanes into position.

SBN ACS said it'll be this way for a month or so...

ATL damage is up for sure. Look for more too, and be careful, the ATL ramp is very low on staffing and new hires are doing things they should not be.

I had a plane down 30+ min for inspection of all three oxygen mask, they are required to get serial #'s for the entire fleet.

Yeah, when we arrived here in ATL last night, none of the rampers precleared the clear zone, and there was a fueling hydrant left within the clear zone while we were allowed to taxi in, and just short of the hitting the hydrant.

I thought it was supposed to be you werent marshalled into the gate at all unless the clear zone was CLEAR?

A lot of the new guys are mistakenly marshalling the 50's to far foward into the gate, and parking them on the 900 stop line. This pulls your right wing right into the refueling cart. We caught a groundcrew trying to do this to us yesterday, but we stopped it in time. Apparently, this is happening about once a week, according to the CPOs.

You get what you pay for! This will keep happening, as Delta in their infinite genius just doesn't get it. Spend a buck to save a penny.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
Ever since NWA took over DAL, they have been doing this crap. This new DAL is gonna be a horrible place for everyone. NWA mgmt. was the very, very worst in the industry!

A Chief told me that mainline puts all the new hires on our gates. So, if that's true, the ramp will always be worse than it even was several years ago. He also said the when our plane gets damaged, we eat it, not them??????????????

Not nearly as bad as the amount we don't get paid for not covering a flight segment.

We'll lose out in the end as a company. The crews get Lost Block, but that is out of ASA's account, not Delta's.

I believe this is what Mesa and to a similar extent, ASA/SKW isfighting Delta over for $25 million.

It is also the flight crew's responsibility to not park until the clear zone is clear. Make them wait on you until you are satisfied that the area is clear and safe to park.
