How many more Comair pilots will be furloughed now because of the Freedom/Mesa move to CVG?

It's safe to say that DCI will not be operating more flights out of CVG starting in May. So for every aircraft, crew and flight hour that Mesa drags into CVG come May will result in the equivalent loss of Comair flying.

So the question will be ... will DAL back fill JFK with Comair (displacing numerous crews and aircraft from CVG to JFK), or will they take the opportunity to cut more regional lift out of the fleet and put more Comair pilots on the furlough list? I think it will be some combination of both. Either way, Mesa moving it's wagon train to CVG will cost Comair more pilot jobs.

Once again, while it have have been DAL's decision, Mesa sticks it to the flying world.

By the way ... Mesa sucks!

Prediction is none. CMR will back fill flying in JFK out of cvg as we do with the 700/900's now. Being wholy owned...we are the only ones who will cancel flights at DAL's request.

Delta will NOT give up the slots at JFK. They are far to valuable to DAL (even if not used...read, not flown by a competitor)...so CMR will back fill.

Comair is the only DCI who will cancel at Delta's request? According to who? What about SLC or ATL, you think those carriers don't cancel at Delta's request?

By saying that Delta requests that Comair does anything it implies that we then have the choice to say no. Comair has no control over any aspect of its operation, Delta does whatever they please and there is nothing Comair can do about any of it.

After what DAL is doing to Freedom,any contract carrier is going to demand in writing that it wont be counted against them, as it should be.

We were speaking of JFK......not slc or atl (which don't even compare to the slot situation at jfk!)

Mesa's doing more flying out of CVG because JFK is just too complicated for their highly-skilled pilots to handle. Comair will do more flying out of JFK as a result of Mesa's incompetence there.

MESA SUCKS!
