I too work for a ramp service company here in Dayton OH. Never had to
deice an MD-80 in the summer but sure sprayed alot of glycol this winter.
Dont know what airline you service but one of the ones we service here is
TWA. Not only do they balance the airplane for trim flight but thay have
very strigent weight and balance for fuel comsumption so it is difficult
to get all the bags and mail in the belly. Never had a problem with the
727 or 737 though.
