Quiet Please. Don’t scare the Ramper

Hello IFC.
Today was a special day for me! My parents for the first time ever got to see me work our LAX flight in today. They arrived from Atlanta on board a Boeing 717. They took pictures of me in various of stages including marshaling in the airplane and doing my walk around.

Enjoy the pictures and fill free to ask questions below.

Was this a coincidence, or was it planned?

That’s cool that they got to see you. Well done with your work, @N1DG!

I noticed when we were taxing out for deicing last I flew out of PIT that there is a parking lot full of jet bridges here, just a fun fact in case anyone was curious 😂

Don’t ask why, I have no idea, keeping one or two spares around doesn’t seem that crazy (but we’re not where near capacity so there is probably one not in use somewhere) but there was at least a dozen…
