Mesaba is returning aircraft 27xj in Oct. Enjoy it if you get it. On a hot day all loaded up, if you don't watch yourself it will do up to 400fpm on the climb out.

Regions (Corpex) isn't getting anything. See it to believe it, trust me!

SAAB=Send Another Aircraft for Baggage
SAAB=Swedes Ain't Aircraft Builders

My experience is that since the projected routes
are into areas with mountians and newer SAABs
are more co$tly to lease than older ones there
is no way that reason will prevail and B+'s will
be leased...if anything is leased at all.

RegionsAir is the airline formerly known as Corporate
Airlines, formerly known as Corporate Express Airlines
(till Corporate Express office supplies was going to
sue them). Callsign Kotex...er, Regex...i mean
"Corpex"...an outfit dedicated to serving the "viable"
19 seat market (viable meaning that you can't afford
to give raises to your employees for the last four
years-or anytime from now till doomsday or the
forseeable future)in the midwest...as long as
they can keep underbidding the competition
(Air Midwest and Great Lakes-note the quality
carriers we are up against)...and as long as
someone else is footing the bill.

It might happen. It is my humble opinion that
they used all of thier "luck" getting the EAS
stuff they are duing now re-upped.

There has been no mention of "bidding" for the
new equipment, a codeshare (lack of a codeshare
resulted in abandoning one viable market prospect
already). There has been mention in the rumor
mill of getting "experienced" FO's to get around
consolidation requirements, but no discussion
of what "carrot" will be used to get a well paid
FO to come to our party...no mention of payscale
sked, QOL, training, maintenance, or any of the
other myriad support structures needed to launch
such a massive undertaking...for the sake of two
or three aircraft.

There are two probabilities in my mind at this
time.

1) Routes will be flown in jetstreams. (sorry
for the inconvienience)

2) Routes will be subcontracted to Greyhound.

That's not funny. That was THE plan at Great Lakes a year or two back. Short range, TSA screened, bus service to the hub on routes like LAR-DEN.

You know that the WV SAAB deal was going to be flown out of CVG as the originating city. The deal was also greatly dependent on acheiving a code share agreement. With guess who... Delta.

Seeing as they announced pulling 26% capacity out of CVG and filed for Ch. 11 I don't think its gonna happen. The SAAB will be that unattainable pie in the sky for corpex for a while I'm afraid.

My regards to all of you still suffering. Keep your chins up.

Er, I wonder what the perdiem will be for that...and we already have
short busses, all we need is handycapped signs to hang from the
rear view mirrors.

nice! Reminds me of the lecture that I got once about
how viable the 19 seat market is...

Well, just to liven the rumor up, I was called today for an interview and was told of SAAB's and Jetstreams.. Although the CP was very upfront with me and said the SAAB's were not in hand yet, but should be comming..

What is the deal? Is Regions being bought by Viva Air Dominicana?

C'mon Regions guys, I need some help here.. :)

Also, do you guys fly out and backs or are they usually over nighters?

Of course, it wouldn't be fair for someone with a finely tuned skill like a pilot to keep all of it..
