Interesting job, able to meet and communicate with many different cultures and companies.
Pros: met many high profile customers, traveled to much of the country/world
Cons: this was contract work income was inconsistant.
When traveling with one of my regular customers:
Every other week during NFL season I would communicate with all airports involved with the customers travel and special needs or requests. I would also abtain equipment weights and passenger manifests. I would create seating charts and submit these to the customer along with menus, crew member names.
On – more... Thursday evening I would fly to San Diego to overnight and check for any new issues that might exist. Friday morning I would locate the aircraft assigned to the charter, brief the Captain and First Officer on procedures in place at both San Jose airport ( where the team and flight attendants board the aircraft) and our destination airport. The three of us would "ferry" the empty aircraft to San Jose where the catering, flight attendants, and customer boarded. I would instruct the ground crew how to load the equipment and baggage, call in the passenger numbers and wieghts, fuel amounts, and cargo wieghts in each loading bin. On arrival at our destination I would coordinate loading of the customer bises, unloading of the equipemnt and baggage. then proceed to the buses where I rode with the customer to our hotel. At the hotel I would meet witht he team travel representatives to disscuss any issues and the return flight. I would be available at the team hotel to disscuss or handle any travel related issues that might arise during the weekend. On Sunday I would drive the team rental vehicle back to the airport and turn it in, then discuss departure information with the local staion employees. Two hours after each Sunday game the flight was scheduled to depart back to San Jose and the job requirements where the same as the arrival trip . Once the team was loaded on their buses and headed home, I would fly back to Atlanta, GA and prepare for my next custome. – less
