That's a delta employee to correct you from your title...and I'm not surprised.

Mods or OP could you please correct your title to refer to the correct employer.

Thanks for the correction. This was the ramp employee at gate C46 working my ASA flight today at Hartsfield, thus I thought it was either a DCI or ASA employee.

Imagine rampers learning FT ID's, and the fun they could have re-routing luggage...

No problem. 2 years ago delta took control of all delta/DCI ground handling in ATL.

How do you know he is asleep?
Maybe he is just exhausted from hauling 70lbs. Medallion bags around the ramp?

Or perhaps he's just trying to clear his head after reading a couple other of today's threads in this forum. What he needs is to be guested in a lounge and served a couple stiff drinks.

And that matters.....why? Who cares who his employer is? Whether he's actually sleeping or not, he should be aware of how he is perceived by others, especially us pax.

Or perhaps it's really boring waiting for the flight to come in.

I often look like that when writing up a particularly dreadful stack of progress notes.

Merely appearing comatose from a distance does not necessarily confirm one's true state of being... Perhaps he was contemplating the meaning of bellybutton lint?

Red face

That position doesn't look very comfortable as a sleeping position!! Perhaps he just wasn't feeling well.

And how is that? Why would you care, as long as you had a good travel experience?

Nahh, he's trying to figure out where the white goes when the snow melts.

For that matter, why will he care if he's sleeping well?
