If you thought Delta Airlines management was half baked here is more evidence. Maybe all the evidence needed to prove the case. This week Delta posted a job opening bid at the Minneapolis- St. Paul Airport (MSP) for someone who could drive a Porsche. Why does Delta need a sports car driver? The plan is to ferry platinum and diamond members of SkyMiles (Deltaís frequent flyer program) from arrival gate to departing gate when the connection is tight. It isnít clear why Delta thinks it cannot do this with electric carts inside the terminal. Apparently someone at Delta has their heart set on further cluttering up the tarmac with more non-essential traffic. Where is the FAA and the MSP Airport Commission when we need them?

hahahahahaha......passengers will NOT be allowed on the ramp.
Yes, the rules and policies favor the airlines unfairly. I do not dispute that.

This services starts next week.

Delta has done this for a couple of years in ATL, and yes they do allow pax on the ramp. The driver meets the passenger in the jet bridge and escorts you down to the awaiting vehicle.

Porsche has their US HQ in Atlanta. The vehicles are provided by Porsche, and while they are driving you from gate to gate, you are subject to advertising materials. All in all, it's a good experience, especially for someone who flies > 140 segments every year, and I'd much rather ride in a Porsche than a coal-fired electric car.
