I have a buddy up there and he said Mesaba is pulling out at the end of the year and the town is trying to get Expressjet as a United Express carrier to fly to ORD from STC. Fun times! Great place to dump 50 seaters---small po-dunk towns. It's the future!

As an added bonus, they'll finally have a reasonable alternate for MSP. :laugh:

Good luck with that. Good thing they finally finished the new terminal there!

I think Delta is going to be the worst thing that ever happened to Mesaba. Northwest comes in a close second though.

What about Brainerd, I Falls, Bemidji and all the rest of them, are they going to axe them all?

It took my a second, but your wit is sharp indeed, since you are talking about the RST incident. As far as the new terminal and co-tower, the mentality is: If you build it.....they will come........ they keep saying that. They couldn't fill 3 daily Saabs according to my buddy up there. But, I bet DL will reinstate the Saabs if UAL and XJT go up there, so everyone will lose more money.

Funny, considering XJT ISN'T a UAX carrier.

This next week will be interesting to say the least. That is, if they don't delay an announcement, again.

As far as the 50 seaters, go, yep, they should be gone. But all of them aren't going away anytime soon. So if they have to rear they're ugly existence and not be replaced by turbo props, where would you rather have them fly?

To the po-dunk towns, or flying mainline routes between larger cities?

Are you sure that isn't EAS flying? If I remember correctly, SkyWest just got some out of ORD.

I think CMX is another one that is going away and I heard UAX is going to do it out of ORD.

Not yet, no. But with CAL now a Star Alliance partner, it's not out of the realm of possibility.

True, but that would entail some SERIOUS re alignment.

But I think you may have missed all the subtle hints at the rampant rumors flying about XJT and UAL.

Again, XJT is not a UAX carrier. I know, Star Alliance blah blah blah.

And again, I don't see this going to XJT under a Star Alliance codeshare when EAS is ALREADY being doled out to current ORD UAX operations.

Maybe XJT will be a UAX carrier soon.....
