Really? If Swift are the cheapest that’s who they will use and by the way, what’s the alternative, Delta, Allegiant, Miami Air?

I’m confused, are you talking about the Sim Instructors sexual orientation when you say “not strait guy” (sic) then his sim partner with “the same interest” failed twice??

It does seem that the new DO along with the Manager of Standardsi are taking the bull by the horns and changing a lot of things that have been wrong, whether they will be successful is another matter, but at least there’s changes happening.

They’re cheap and the biggest reason of all is the lack of charter carriers that can do the lift for them. The majors are shying away from charter ops, Delta is probably the only major that has a pretty good grasp at the sports charter market for NHL MLB etc.

Miami Air has a limited fleet and I hear they’re not cheap.

World Atlantic well.... their airplanes can’t do the lift and much less probably in worse shape than allegiants mad dogs.

The only investment Swift has made to their VIP product is using the Alaska birds they acquired for VIP, do to their galley configurations. Probably the best airplanes in the fleet.

I mean remember they also keep costs down by making pilots do security vs hiring security companies. Only certain brokers hire security.

Think of it this way. MLB NHL are at the top of the profession and the folks there you would think deserve the best not something the equivalent to A league baseball or AA hockey.

Most teams contract through a broker and the broker hires the airline. Of course there’s also direct contract with certain teams. Unlike the NBA which required Delta for all the league I guess the other sports are allowed to broker their own deals. A lot of these teams Swift has flown for years and has had either a good or bad service with them. I know last year they ****ed off a lot of people. So who knows, they need to get it together.
