Heyas,

I believe I heard it had something to do with Mesa's capital reserve. The services agreement with Delta requires a minimum level, and Mesa has gone below it, or so I'm told.

I think the moral of the story is that Delta wants to be done with Mesa, and they're working hard to make sure it happens. When it happens to RAH, ASA, Comair and all the others, then it will be time for a cold beer.

Quite simple really, attorney fees, messa doesn't have a lotta cash, the only thing more expensive than attorneys is a wicked crack habit combined with a serious taste for ex-supermodel hookers, association with either will not end up pretty.

Unless it's a divorce attorney, then you are better with the crack and hookers.

Delta is re-filing for the contract termination suit that has spent the last year in the injunction hearings. With the injunction the actual trail court must here the case.

Mesa will run out of money for high priced lawyers before Delta will. Delta can hold out much longer than Mesa. Bye bye Mesa.

That must mean you work for Compass, Pinnacle or Mesaba? Don't flatter yourself, we're all honest regionals facing our own trials. Compass has the Delta flow back, Pinnacle has its contract debacle and Mesaba is losing all its Saabs.

Don't flatter yourself, it's always time for a cold beer! Thanks for letting us all know that you want RAH, ASA and Comair to fall by the wayside because you're dying from your unmet career expectations. As bad as you think you have it, Comair has it way worse than you buddy. They've furloughed more pilots, lost more flying and screwed more pilots than any DAL regional... Please swallow your pride.

Go ahead and drink one of those cold beers and join the club; we're in this together...

Then if thats true NuGuy, than you should be mad at your senior pilots who allowed regional flying to be farmed out. Your Delta MEX was asked if they wanted to incorporate regional flying into a common seniority, but regionals we're too low be associated with the real Delta. Never-mind that we do half of your flying.

Imagine all the current Delta pilots who would have not been furloughed in 911 had Delta pilots had regional seats to flow back into. You want to be mad at ASA for taking your flying, but you should be mad at the Delta pilots who made 500k a year flying nonstop green slips. I personally know one and he is so proud of his W-2s!

The DAL regionals are your whipping children now... but you, your customers and your management created us with your pride and greed.

And what have you done lately to regain scope lost to regionals? Cause posting in here apparently isn't helping your cause.

Heyas,

I wish you guys however many airplanes, in whatever size that your little hearts desire, and that they fullfill all your happy little career expectations.

Just not on the DL code. If your outfits are the models of efficiency that you claim, and your operations profitable, then the only thing to do is let you guys loose to chase your dreams, without that pesky boat anchor of a code share. Then you guys can do whatever you want and be free of the evil 'mainline' boogeyman.

So go ahead. What is stopping you from negotiating an end to these inefficient regionals that your management clings to like grim death? You are a mighty mainline pilot, so negotiate already. You are the one who controls scope, right? So F'n do something about it, D***head.
