Delta on ramp freq in ATL today, while getting pushed, he asks if we can be pulled up a bit, as ramp crew is starting to unhooking airplane. We agree so he can switch lines, since somehow !!HE!! got nose to nose with his company. It takes us a minute, as the ground crew is confused, and has to adapt, mind you this is an AA ground crew who is getting switch/replaced by Eagle and not happy, esp at Eagle folks.

Delta 757 guy then uses ramp freq every 10 seconds with stupid comment/questions, such as what is going on, is Eagle going to move, did they let the ground crew know, I am not sure they understand what we are asking.

TOOL OF THE DAY.

Methinks you need to review the proper definition of a "tool." Sounds like the tools may be the AA ground crew. FYI, the 757 guy wasn't responsible for being nose to nose with another DAL jet, that would be on the ramp controller.

When someone can't wait 5seconds from when we are asked to be tugged till we are, then makes stupid comments on the freq, thats a tool.

I know it's atl and we aren't delta but come on.

I nominate the guys I fly with that , when switching frequencies, instantly key the mike to check in without even a second of hesitation to see if maybe they are cutting off someone else. Can someone explain this? I see it fairly often.
