I saw that at the end....
Island Air as the new go!express. VERY glad to not be there still.
And how is it that the 'express' side of the operation pays more?

It's quite amazing.....

So at Mokulele is over taken by RAH holdings (well at least their name) and the Mokulele becomes the lesser paid express carrier of the new contractor.

Now Go! is using a higher paid express carrier (Island air) to do it's smaller locations.

It's like the famous quote, where the revolution eventually devyours it's own children.

It's a matter of time before the regional industry is "shocked" to see that Mexicana is starting an RJ outfit where pilots will work for $500 a month as captains and free as copilots so they can get that precious PIC time.

Then you will have US carriers battling to obain permission for said carrier to fly routes in the US as contractors or "code share".

Ignore what is happening at your own peril. But according to most pilots in second world countries, US regional pilots are severly over paid and need to be brought to reality! Afterall, they are just trying to get their start in the industry.

Pilots are labor (dime a dozen and there is no shortage of pilots and pilot wannabes) and really have no say in business models (unless they start up their own, of course). The invisible hand will follow the path of fate. Fatalistic, but accurate. The present condition of the airlines was a progression which has found its natural course and management is at the helm. Not pilots or unions. Like it or lump it. A lot of things were better years ago. Our world is changing and so is the face of labor in every industry. Airline pilots are hardly the expcetion. I blame most of the wide spread social/occupational/economical malaise on technology. Technology has advanced too rapidly for the population to evlove along with it. Technology is the cart beforethe horse in a sense. We're too innundated with the wonders of Moore's Law and the superflous amount of technology which is harming us more than helping. Think HAL but to a lesser degree.

Exactly. I f-ing hate the apathetic pukes that say it's never the pilots fault. You know mgmt's corporate policies and ethics before you go there. You have a say in the matter by NOT EVEN APPLYING.

BTW, mesa sucks!
