We built the ship Comair to fly the sky so blue . They thought they had a ship that the water wouldn't go through. It was on the main trip where the snowball hit the ship. It was sad when the great ship went down.It was sad.It was sad.It was sad when the great ship went down to the bottom of the, husbands and wives, little children lost their lives. It was sad when the great ship went down."

Mesaba getting another Comair aircraft, Pinnacle getting more aircraft and Comair shrinking. Hmm I wonder what they are doing.

Not so sure about pinnacle getting more aircraft. I would doubt that very much. We are just baby sitting a couple until they go to Mesaba.

Sucks to be the Comair guys. You guys try to raise the bar, only to be stabbed in the back by every other regional, especially RAH.
But hey, it takes a special person to fly the "Guppy Killer".

Yeah tell that to the Mesaba guys.

I agree with your sentiment. Mesaba is, and always has been a class act. They've had their turn to be abused at the hands of their mainline partner, and they are due for some recovery.

For reasons that can only be speculated, Delta continues to make the decision to shrink Comair. So be it.

Just keep in mind when Comair management brags about how great a job everyone is doing putting up record consecutive completion days that in the end these metrics are rewarded only with continued reduction of fleet size and staffing.

Well that's your first problem buddy. You never ever NOT EVER listen to what management says. :laugh:
But seriously, sorry that Comair is getting giggitied in their gishmoiguen.

Yeah - America sucks. Hate good healthy competition and the free-market. Damn. Too bad we pilots are not entitled to everything we could ever imagine while the rest of the world is lucky to have a one decent meal and earn their $1 a day.

How it's it HEALTHY to undercut another company, by agreeing to fly a bigger airplane for cheaper?
