I flew through ORD today and saw a bunch of ExpressJet airplanes, in the branded colors at the F gates. Did I miss the announcement? Or were they doing some charters and UA was ground handling them?

Doesn't Trans have pilots on furlough? Replaced by another ALPA carrier?

And there are many at XJT who are more than a little hopeful that this will evolve into a long-term contract with UAL. And I'm guessing UAL isn't exactly looking to expand its 50-seat feed right now, if you catch my drift.

I believe it when I see it, this company will always be controlled by CAL. We were supposed to feed UAL from EWR and CAL put a quick stop to that.

if they end up getting ual bennies (cuz ual's doing it regardless of if the pilot even's based where they fly for Ual) then there's 2000 more ways to not get to where youre going.

We are not operating them at a loss. CAL CPA is currently break even at best with the low utilization of the aircraft (only about 8-9 hrs a day vs 11-12 hrs a day with UAL). If CAL had all 214 planes flying at a higher utilization then it would be profitable. UAL is making us money and hopefully it will morph into a long term deal. I do not know how our rates compare to the other 50 seat UAX feed, that is kept secret at the highest levels. I would like to see other regionals with higher pilot pay (Comair, ASA, Eagle, Horizon, Air Whisky) get more flying instead of the regionals that are at the lower end of pilot pay continuing to expand......

This is how UAL is going to pay for those shiny new jets. Give a regional a couple of flights and charge ALL their employees to ride on their own airplane.

Supposedly, it's making XJT money, I don't doubt it. But doing this temp/ACMI flying is like one of our FO's doing an FRL for the summer and mowing lawns on his time off. Yeah, the money is nice but it isn't going to make him rich when the summer ends.

I'd rather see mainline getting more flying.

Could this be a "trial" run for a long term agreement with ExpressJet?
