Why would Colgan go for the retiring SA A-models, when all their other Saabs are B's? It's not like there's a shortage of B's or anything, although the SA birds have already been painted. ;)

They are going to use the 340's that are in Houston because CO is going to give them the boot. Colgan is is more like a chop shop. There performance sucks. 25% on time and 76% completion. Way to go guy's. They lost 8 mechanics in the last week an a half because they refuse to work in those conditions. If United give's you a contract I'd be suprised. Colgan is the worst Regional.Period. I have to ask one Question. What takes you longer, doing your pre-flight or reading all the inop stickers?

And what stellar company do you work for?

haha, exactly. It seems the only 2 you can work at on this board are UPS or Fedex. Every other place has some sort of a knock on it, and people love this.

Mesa: bottom feeders
CHQ: bottom feeders
Colgan: bottom feeders
SWA: PFT...gotta pay for the type
United: living through bankruptcy
Jetblue: no pay, will be screwed when they pay for their planes
Airtran: they are value jet you know
Eagle: have fun upgrading on 7 years
Coex: people did PFT here back in the 90's
Comair: this place used to suck, so you may suck if you work there
Continental: 1st year pay is 30K, so the whole place sucks


So if a dude wants to rip on a company and someone asks him where he works, what is the best answer that would not warrant any kind of comeback? I think the only possible answer is Fedex, but the comeback would be: "prove it"

How many times have you checked the can for MEL stickers to put on the non-dimmable EGPWS button, only to find them all used up? A uniquely Colgan experience.

Oh, well i see their you have military experience. HA!!!!!!!

American: you guys screwed TWA pilots
USairways: you screwed over your furloughees
Skywest: you suck cause you have no union
Horizon: slow upgrade
Commutair: you only fly a beech 1900, and for low wages
Independence: screwing the industry by giving the seats away for free
PSA: you got jets and piedmont and allegheny didn't, survey says: you whores!

Boston maine: you suck
Pinnacle: a haven for PFT hires= you suck if you work there, and are a whore
ASA: you fly 70 seaters, which kill mainline jobs. Ruining the industry
Delta: soon to have a pay scale much lower then SWA for similar equipment



Where to work, where to work?
Fedex does have that $50 fee too. You know, your place sucks.;)

Now since we all suck I guess we need to measure the differential sucking power between each airline to figure out who sucks harder!

The problem with Colgan is you don't realize how bad it sucks until you escape the whirlling vortex of terror.

I was gonna write my letter in crayon, but another guy in the crashpad ate the whole box so I had to use a sharpie marker instead.
