I'm trying to imagine how putting ramp in #1 would work. Do you put ground in #2? Do you stop listening to ground? Some of our ramp and ops are combined (especially in hubs) that calling long before approaching the alley is necessary. I don't think I was ever told to put ramp in #2, it just always seemed easiest.

Don't listen to ground when I'm pushing from ramp. I switch to ground frequency when it's time to talk to ground.

If required to call when i land I'll call on 2. Like DFW or LAX.

Every airline I've worked for uses com 1 for everything. Why do you need to monitor ground when you're on the ramp? If you need to call ops while taxing (LGA) the fo just calls on 2 and captain handles ground.

I've flown with FOs who just switch to #2 without telling me when approaching the ramp and I have no clue what's going as I'm busy taxiing. At least tell the other guy if you're going to be switching coms. Mostly eagle flows as I guess that's what they do there. Those guys typically end up calling ramp on guard as well.

I land in ORD. I need to call ramp/ops to check on the gate and concurrently monitor ground. I put the common ramp and ops frequency into 2 and verify that we have a good gate. If we landed on 9L I call ramp 30 minutes later as we're finally approaching the alley and ramp is already in 2, why would I put it in 1? What if, while we are approaching the alley ground control tells us to give way to an EMB that's taxiing way too fast on Alpha because the early 30s captain is rushing to the gate to send his Snapchats? But I already switched off of ground? That's why I keep ground in until I'm completely off the taxiways.

Me and saabs are saying the same thing. Talk on 2 when you need to listen to both. However, once you roll onto the ramp is where the difference occurs. LUS stayed on 1. Really not a big deal. Just semantics.

The wife is always trying to get me to join Snapchat. Is it not worth it?

I'm so tired of your attitude.

FACT: USAir was DONE! You had nothing. LAA was in fact Way more than Superior to you.

So now I will put I am superior to you in every thread every response to you.


there you go.

Is your name EK? I heard you've been kicked off many message boards.
Fast is US Air was making money at the time of the merger and AA was losing 100's of millions so keep telling yourself whatever you need to get you through the day.
