Pinnacle is getting Freedumbs 900's

Just announced today, Pinnacle will be operating Freedumbs old 900's. According to Phildo, we will be operating them on a temporary basis starting in October.


These birds will be just another carrot to dangle in front of the pilot group to get us to sign a sub-par contract. Phil can already kiss these planes good bye because we will NOT sign anything but a fair contract.

They don't fly "50's" for Delta...

Although they DO fly them for NWA.

It is amazing how many people insist on being confused in the difference between "lose" and "loose," ain't it?

I guess we should call Webster and just him to make the words totally interchangeable. Grammactical equivalent of "new math." Kinda like "ebonics" for whitey.

Yeah numbnuts, that's why I used the single quotes around the word loose...feeling stupid for falling for it aren't ya? Like leading the blind off a cliff...

God it's fun being a few steps ahead of some of you.

Hence the use of the word 'gonna', or rather 'going to' so that CRJ567 doesn't have to go on about people not using the proper 'grammer'. Pay attention, I just used singluar quotes around the word grammer, it could be another trick.

Lets see the press release. I've also heard that mesa is winning the court case big time so I'm sure its just a matter of time till they get them back.

How exactly does one 'win a case' prior to the final ruling?

Interesting cause while nothing official, Skywest said it was getting 9 new 900s starting Oct 25. Jerry said that Skywest was just wrapping up the final deal on flying those planes.

guess we got juked again

As for the law suite, heard that Mesa had the leverage and it looked like Delta may be forced to give the flying back or pay to break the contract.

This is getting creepy. A position notice comes out today for 9 captains! ASA is going to lower the boom on this by becoming the most efficient 900 operator with 1 crew per aircraft...

Brad did a great job while here at Skywest and I hear he's doing a great job at ASA but this sounds like a Rumsfeld move if true.

Every Regional facing negotiations needs to be sure that they fight for a good contract. TSA, MESA, Pinnacle... Good luck, put the screws to'em!
