Down here in MCO, a lot of rumors going around about TPA for next year. Mesa execs have been spotted looking at the MCO hangar. Also rumor has it that DAL has an empty hangar now in TPA. But who knows.

Mesa/Freedom will start with 15 ERJ's in MCO starting around october so far with a second base openning around the end of the year for the remaining 10 to 15. i've heard rumors of Comair reducing the GSO base to ramp up the new JFK base so that may be a possibility for the remaining aircraft.

Comair will be bought by Mesa in the near future.

Anything is possible so maybe MESA will buy Comair. If they do, they'll just keep it separate. If they don't keep it separate, then Comair will eventually take over Mesa and Johnny O will learn that he bit off more than he could chew.

Hey Sucka, put spaces after each comma in your "aircraft experience" column. We'll be glad you did. ;)

he really wants his single engine time to stand out to all of us so we can notice how much experience he has in planes that really matter.

base rumors

Those are the leading two in the rumor mill. BOS because we do tons of flying there and ACA used to have a base there. MSP only because we have about 50 pilots or more, plus FA's, who commute from there. But with only one city pair out of there (CVG) we would have to ramp up ATL and/or SLC again big time, neither of which is likely, so I'd say MSP will never happen unless we get NWA code, which will never happen until we are spun off and even then a long shot.

Another possibility is MCO moving to TPA, or having a combined base. The company would love to have a JFK/LGA base too, but both would require side letters to achieve (increased reserve call out times first of all, plus each lineholder trip starting/finishing in the same base, or free transportation to and from if it doesn't, commuter policy protection to cover both airports, etc.)

That's funny. That same rumor has been going on for a while at CHQ about a TPA domicile flying 170's.

I think I remember Fred Butrell saying there would be a Comair E170 base in TPA.



Bye Bye--General Lee
