Has anybody else heard of a rumor concerning Colgan flying as a United Express carrier out of Dulles? The jist of what I heard was that Shuttle America is dumping their Saab 340's and purchasing Emb 170s. United still wanting turbo prop service out of Dulles is talking to Colgan to fill this void. I am not stating this as fact, but just what I heard from someone else. If anybody has a factual basis for this rumor please post.

I remember hearing that several months ago. That and the more recent rumor of Trans States dumping their J-41s in BWI and that we're picking up some of those routes.

I'm always astounded by the magnitude of rumors that swirl around our family-owned, rather innocuous little airline. I guess there are a lot of ex-Colganites out there...

Colgan can not fly what it has now. Expansion is not going to be happening until they get caught up with the abortion they have going at IAH.

I'm not going to go down the Colgan bashing road.... but I will say this to all my friends still there.

The political clout the Senator has been using to keep the company flying is about exhausted. The alphabet agency is about to park eveything until the company get's the MX department in order. They've had enough MX induced shutdowns and improper paperwork... Keep your eyes and ears open and be safe.

The United rumor is still flying around....though I agree they can't, nor should they, take on more flying right now.:eek:
