    Check out JetBlue, I think they are looking for GSE guys at JFK. Right now is hard times around NY for aviation jobs.

    Re: airport jobs?

    ok, so I'm a total noob. I recently flew for the first time not to long ago, and now I'm hooked! I'm like a little kid when I look up at planes in the air now. I love it. That being said I have no idea what a GSE is. Also, if I wanted to see if Jetblue was hiring at JFK, how do I go about doing that? On the Jetblue website? Or do I go to JFK? Total noobie here so bare with me, and thanks for all the quick replys.

    gse is the easiest stuff to work on, period. ...

    actually, i take that back, though jetblues stuff is still relatively new.

    I work on GSE equipment, I did for Oxford at EWR, Jet at TEB, and now I am with ASIG at EWR again. Where are you located? We might be looking for a helper or a mechanic, and last I heard they were looking for some at JFK also.

    I wish B6 would get their own mechanics at EWR, I would go there in a heart beat, a friend of mine works for their contractor.

    At US LGA we contracted out our GSE shop around 4 or 5 years ago. When it was in house it was a nice gig for the guys their as they where bascially auto mechanics, no A & P required but they had similar union benefits to our aircraft mechanics, at one time good pay, and flight benefits. I would think in the future most airlines that already haven't would also contract this work out, sadly.

    Regards

    While this is probably not what the thread starter would want for others reading this I have been told by local employees that Southwest at LGA has 4 ramp agents positions open they are trying to fill. For some reason can't find anything about it on their website.

    Cheers

    Those positions were posted online a few days ago but have since been taken down. Not sure if they were filled, or if they'll be posted again. Keep an eye on southwest.com/careers since postings pop up (and disappear) every day.

    Re: airport jobs?

    Can anybody help me get a job with AA or DAL? I know they pay more then the contractor i'm working for is currently paying me and the flight benefits would be a big help in my ability to see my grandfather in florida. Hes 90 now and his health isnt all that great. Just a small abckground on him he was one of the people who worked on the radar way back when it was in development. But yea back to the main point working for one of the airlines. If anybody could help i would highly appreciate it.

    AA and DAL post any availibilities online. The hiring process at airlines has in the last years become less about who you know because it is all online.
