United Hires NASCAR Crew Members

United Airlines April 14 2006 1 Comment

United Airlines plans to add 125 flights to its schedule without increasing the number of aircraft.  How?  They’re going to make their turnaround times more efficient.  How are they doing that?  They’re hiring NASCAR pit crews to train their baggage handlers.  I think this falls under the category of an Idea So Crazy It May Just Work.  Should it worry me that NASCAR, which is known for its horrible crashes, is working with an airline?

    I think the idea of NASCAR and Airlines is a perfect fit. I can see Viagra sponsoring a JetBlue plane to match the little blue pills. This may well be the boost the airlines need……
