Is Custom Air Transport part of UPS or owned by UPS, or was the guy with the CAT badge bluffing when I asked who he flew for and he said "UPS".
I.P. Freley said:I think you guys might be getting a little excited over this person's alleged statement about "I fly for UPS". It may have been either with a sense of irony or tongue-in-cheek, as both the Menlo people and the contract carriers kind of joke about it, along the lines of "UPS, Menlo, Emery, whoever the heck it is we work for this week". Different parts of the facility have the branding of each of the above.
And no, the cargo itself is not branded UPS.
And hey, satpak, I've not yet run across a CAT guy who's dropped that kind of attitude. More than a couple of them have echoed El Guapo's statement (CAT is probably worse than most 135 outfits, a statement that comes straight from the mouths of some crew I've talked to), but the flight crews are friendly.
El Guapo said:27 Driver,
UPS and Fedex to me are considered the top carriers in the cargo world to ME. By saying that CAT is one of the worse outfits out there I mean by work rules, treatment of crews by management, pay, benefits, etc..
You are absolutly right, I shouldn't catagorize CAT as the worst because I've never worked there. But my comments come directly from former and a few current pilots that I know there and I wish they'd find a better place.
