PHOENIX, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MESA AIR GROUP, INC. (Nasdaq: MESA - News) today announced that the timeframe for United Airlines to exercise its renewal rights with respect to extending Mesa's operation of 26 CRJ-200 aircraft under its code-share agreement with United Airlines has expired. Mesa plans to work with United Airlines on an orderly transition plan, but, in any event, the date of exit from service is expected to be no later than April 30, 2010.
Mesa currently operates 136 aircraft with approximately 800 daily system departures to 126 cities, 40 states, Canada, and Mexico. Mesa operates as Delta Connection, US Airways Express and United Express under contractual agreements with Delta Air Lines, US Airways and United Airlines, respectively, and independently as Mesa Airlines and go!. In June 2006 Mesa launched inter-island Hawaiian service as go!. This operation links Honolulu to the neighbor island airports of Hilo, Kahului, Kona and Lihue. The Company, founded by Larry and Janie Risley in New Mexico in 1982, has approximately 3,700 employees.

Remember, these are our fellow pilots who are soon to be out of work. Let's show them a little sympathy here..
You are incorrect. These are NOT our fellow pilots. These guys and gals are the enemy. They are now getting what that should have gotten years ago. Mesa is a plague; pure and simple. They must be stopped at any cost. They have destroyed the way of life for many, but they are going to be defeated. Period.

Dude, you are clueless.. The problem is Mesa management not the pilots.. I agree their CEO is a plague but not the ones flying the planes.

I liken the MESA pilots blaming the management to the crew who gets in a wreck in the hotel van because the driver was being reckless behind the wheel. Sure you aren't at the wheel, but grow some balls and speak up already.

The ones that "spoke up" did so with their feet.

Just wondering what you think happened to the pilots that lost their jobs when Mesa or one of their subsidiaries undercut their company with cheap labor?

Prove that it was Mesas fault they lost their jobs ..If you are wholly owned, you are at the mercy of mainline and that would be mainlines choice to cut that flying from one company and give to another.If you think a pilot group has any input on that then you are sadly mistaken

Yep-

You have to draw the line somewhere, and for years, that line was and still is drawn above Mesa's level.

True scumbag bottom feeders have always been around, but we should always remember that an angel gets its wings in heaven each time another turd like Mesa eats it!

Best thing mainline could do is cut the puppet strings on ALL the regionals and park every single RJ, then no one group could blame the other for their demise.

Mesa pilots actually fought and won against that whipsaw we called "Freedom A". Funny how no one ever seems to give Mesa pilots credit for doing the right thing and standing up. Sadly the pilots at TSA didn't win that fight on their home turf. Then again we're always the ones people love to hate...until they need a ride home. I would caution you wisely to be careful as Mesa pilots have moved on to many, many places. I know some who are at Emirates, JetBlue, and Southwest just to name a few. I'd be careful of what you say and who you say it to. That guy across the table from you in your next interview might have been a Mesa pilot. Sure would be a shame you lose that opportunity because "Mesa sucks." Just food for thought.

Well said...I also know many Mesa guys at JB, SWA and Airtran..Also be careful what you say once you get on a Mesa JS and don't screw it up for the rest of your company.

Most regional pilots sold their souls to fly the RJ. We should all be flying turbo props. If you want to fly jets-go the the "majors" also know as the legacy airlines. I cannot think of too many people who said to themselves "Man I got into this business to fly for a commuter for the rest of my life" To say otherwise is very sad.

And thats why you joined the ranks of poor paying regionals (Colgan, Lynx, PDT, or whatever airline you fly for) You woke up one day and said I would like to work for Colgan for 16K because they only fly turboprops. I say BS.

BEST OF LUCK TO ALL MESA GUYS!
