  1. UA ramp at JFK are actually protected by the union contract, so they couldn’t rely on vendors, right?
    Maybe they’ll do another furlough and give everyone affected the option to transfer there instead of hiring off the street.

    • Good point on the union contract. Though I’m sure UA could staff it with displaced LGA/EWR workers right now. And finding gates to use shouldn’t be too hard.
