Entire Trans States Airlines fleet of 145s (only 31 A/c) is grounded once again for non compliance with an AD. This marks the 4th time in 12 months!!!! Will UAL ever fire them???

Yup. I lost almost 5 hours of pay today because of it. Lots of flights canceled and aircrafts 801-812 grounded due to non-compliance. Aparently, a wire bundle in the APU area had be wrapped, heat shrunk, and shortened (service bulletin).

I hear that we are about halfway through a 90 probationary period. Great job Trans States.

You didn't catch this during pre-flight?

Wasn't the entire fleet, but about half.

Nah, who cares? TSA will still get the FAA diamond award. Great working system!

I refuse to commute on TSA. The last two times I caught a ride I seriously thought the wings were going to separate in flight. Noisy, stanges squeaks, squealing door seals EVERYWHERE, struts that sound more like a stagecoach on waggon wheels..... SCARY.

Plus it is so unreliable! I have commuted for a total of about 8 months (lived out of base for about 6 months and displaced for about 2.5) and I can count on my hands how many times I've used me own company because it is so unreliable.

...... You expect these stupid comments from pax not fellow pilots. Do you refuse to fly on Southwest? Remember the dozens of broken 737s they let fly last year? What about American, the MD80s with the nose gear problems? What about ASA that grounded about 50 planes because of engine mx problems??

By the way, that squeaky thing is an ERJ thing not a TSA thing. Actually do a search it's been brought up many times.
