With Daytona Beaches airport birthday it was mentioned that executives from ASA and Skywest were in town for the celebration. Also that there was talks of a branded (like ExpressJet) flying out of DAB to places like IAD. Not sure if it would be ASA or Skywest but would make sense to use the extra 20 50's coming available in April '10 from ASA. Just a rumor but Gulfstream International looks to be failing along with a recent 50.1% stock sale, along with there FAA issues, who knows?

In typical Skywest fashion, it seems like they're slowly testing the waters. Instead of jumping in with branded flying, they are expanding into a lot of "at risk" cities, but marketed under the mainline partner.

I could see a possible United Express flying to IAD from some Florida cities (maybe MLB, DAB, etc..) just a thought.

I thought they've been talking about this at ASA since the first of the year.

Its flying for the 20 ASA 200s. Skywest does not have airplanes to cover the flying. Once the announcement is made next month, PBS will pass for sure.

That sounds about right, I don't think PBS has a chance in hell of passing unless they dangle some carrot in front of us, and of course we'll bite.

I figured out the OO/EV connection with this. OO pilots will be using EV planes. Now it all makes sense.

I'll confirm that ASA people will be very happy in a few weeks. Seriously.
