Hello everyone, it has been officially a week since I started my job and to say I’m loving it right now. It’s a lot different from the GA side and I’m for sure learning a lot. As a new hire, I’ve got to wing walk both the left and right side, disconnect the tower bar from the pushback, pushed wheelchairs, gotten in the cargo bin, uploaded and unloaded bags from the baggage carts. We get A320s from AAY and they are configured for 186 passengers. Our flights range from 170-180 passengers on board and between 75-90 bags in the bins.
With working the A320, there are three cargo bins. One forward and two aft versus the A319 has one forward and one aft for a total of three. Here are some pictures of the A320 cargo bins. These ARE NOT MINE!
