Just got the news. SkyWest will be opening SFO as a reserve domicile for 2 CRJ crew and 2 EMB crews.
Well, yeah they do. In their defense, I think it's less an intentionally misleading environment, and more an environment of uncertainty. They usually are pretty quick to let us know when they have something confirmed, but during negotiation (like the ASA purchase, for example) all the information comes from outside sources and wild speculation. In the past, our mgmt group has been fairly quick to communicate. I think now that our partners (since they're both bankrupt) aren't planning as far in advance, it's making our long-term plans less concrete. I don't think it's intentional, but it surely is annoying.
Giving 1/2 the airplanes to SkyWest wouldn't keep me happy if I was an ASA guy. Those were originally your aircraft orders. I wouldn't feel particularly happy if they gave you guys 1/2 of our pending orders either. I guess we'll see what happens. I like growth, but I don't care to yank the rug out from under ASA's or anyone else's feet.
