Not totally true. XJT recently voluntarily started paying for a portion of every gallon of fuel. This is another reason for the slight reduction of year-over-year decrease in profit.erj-145mech said:Continental buys the fuel that ExpressJet burns, so that isn't an issue there. The hurricane is another thing though. Hotel rooms are a premium in Houston, and Continental Express is having to deadhead crews to places like Knoxville and Corpus Christi just to get a room for the night.

The best way to be on their good side is to save fuel. With the CPA we make moremoney if we use more fuel...Superpilot92 said:i believe that we are paying some above what the CPA states for the gas. Staying on CALs goodside. Remember do your part to savewhat you can.
A captain I flew with a few months ago had a copy of it, so I spent a 4 day reading it.Superpilot92 said:I am Just saying to reduce costs if at all possible. Where did you see the CPA want to take a look at it also.
It's not a matter of should or should not, just a matter of a contract agreement. CAL could pay for it but then pay XJT less for their services. Or the other way around.flatspin7 said:CAL should have to pay for Xjet's fuel... They price the product and they dictate where and when the airplanes are flown. XJET doesnt make a dime more or less if the airplane is completely full or if there is no one on it.
I highly doubt you or your captain had a copy of the CPA. It is a confidential corporate document that is not public in any way, shape, or form. What you most likely were reading was a public SEC filing like a 10K or 10Q that explains certain aspects of the CPA...but it isn't the actual CPA.Flechas said:A captain I flew with a few months ago had a copy of it, so I spent a 4 day reading it.
