Ah! The writing on the wall is becoming legible. This is the beginning of the end for Mesa. Selling off the spare parts is just one step away from complete shutdown.

Have you seen their stock in the last week though? They've gone from 17cents up to close today at 50 cents! I can't stand the airline...but I wish I had a few shares

These types of deals are pretty common. The buyer manages the spare parts inventory for the airline. Almost every carrier has these types of deals.

My bet is on Comair going first, heard there are alot of 50 seaters parked in CVG along with furloughs. Haven't heard anything about Mesa parking planes or furloughing.Maybe Delta will sell the Comair name to Mesa so they can add it to the list next to Aloha.

Haven't heard anything about Mesa parking planes....

Then you haven't been listening hard enough. Where are their Delta 900s? And weren't the majority of their 145s parked for a while? And didn't a couple of their finest try their hardest to park a CRJ in the middle of the Pacific while taking a nap?

Selling of parts inventory to raise cash for dept payments due in the New Year was discussed during road shows for TA. Not a big surprise. The Aloha deal is something else all together.

It’s going to be an interesting new year at Mesa Land.

You need to listen harder, those 900s are owned by Delta not Freedom and those are not parked. last I heard Pinnacle has them and then Mesaba gets them next.The 145s last i heard are flying again except for 6 of them of which a few were leased to Trans States and the remaining as spares.As far as the CRJ incident in Hawaii WTF does that have to do about parking airplanes.They didn't go! swimming did they?
