With AirWis parting ways with UAL for US Air, is there any word on who might be picking up all the flying the will be left behind? They do allot of flying out of ORD and IAD that will be prime for Skywest or CHQ to pick up as Air Wis shifts A/C and crews to the US Air side.

Fly Safe...:cool:

The flying was initially awarded to SkyWest and G*Jets. MESA may get some, until UAL exits CH11. Then quality of service becomes important again. Watch UAL dump MESA again, just like they did back in the 90's.

Everybody keeps saying that UAL will drop Mesa because of poor service. I wish they would. But customer service is long gone at United. Its all about the $$$$$. So I think Mesa will probably become the second largest UALexpress carrier.

206,

Count me in, just need date and time.

And to the uninitiated, a word of advice: You might not want to use the phrase 'parting ways' to an AWAC pilot concerning UAL. We were not the ones who wanted to end the relationship, UAL was. And of course the excuse was that we were too expensive.

I guess we'll see how expensive G*Jets is for UAL when they cancel flights due to lack of crew. Word is that they are having a VERY difficult time filling classes.

You're probably right, which is why I have no faith in UAL's continued existence. The morons in management at all companies need to realize that the most important equation in business is as follows:

Good Customer Service = Repeat Business = $$$$$$$

There are only a few ways for an airline to differentiate itself from other carriers:

1. Price (and see where that race to the bottom in fares got them?)
2. Schedule (Bankrupt carriers typically can't afford to maintain an extensive schedule and cut back. Plus, on regional routes, RJs can't support as many flights to smaller cities as cheaper turboprops could.)
3. Customer Service (Long ignored or paid lip service only by the majors. This is a key ingredient in the success of Southwest and Jetblue who do not have schedules as extensive as the majors.)

I would bet that UAL will be around much longer than Independance.

*************************s is Trans State's alter ego non-union express carrier that will begin flying for UAL shortly. Alot of it's pilots are union members who are turning their backs on the union protection just to have a job. Scabs. The result is lower wages and work rules. The problem origionated when the Trans States pilots didn't negociate a "No alter ego clause" in their last CBA.

Actually, G0 Jets is already flying for UAL. They park right in front of our shop at E2A everyday.

What's amazing is that you guys still believe that a bunch of scabs can provide better service than Mesa can. Unfortunately I think United is stuck with us...by the time all is said and done we'll have close to 60 airplanes in United paint.

Maybe until February 2006. UAL is going to have a great time trying to compete with the other large carriers that are in bankruptcy. I wouldn't be so smug.

LOL....Funny thing is, Mesa replaced AWAC crews for UNITED. Alot of people would have laughed at that idea, but it happened. Its obvious United could care less about customer service. It all goes to the lowest bidder/mesa/*************************s. AWAC had 80+ airplanes in "united Paint". Good luck with that...
