XJT stock shot up 20% yesterday. SkyW stock was on a tear as well, but it has cooled off. It wouldn't surpise me one bit if both (ASA/XJT) got some flying. Unless of course SkyW Inc. floated UAL some cash....In that case I would expect an Inc. only party.

Contract for 26 Mesa CRJ 200s ends April 2010. ASA gets 20 CRJ 200s released from Delta contract April 2010. Coincidence?

BTW I heard the new ASA wings and hat emblem have been ordered since we're no longer solely Delta Connection!

Remember when Mesaba ordered a bunch of pilots for 10 CRJ-900s they never got?

Hey- the regional flying is out there to be flown..........not more scope errosion from mainline. They gave it up, and it will be flown by someone. So why not a company with a good contract and decent pay, as opposed to a standard lowering outfit that continues to undercut the lowest of the low??????????????

SWA pilots were the first "major" to work without an A fund pension plan...which undercut the "legacy" carriers...Pot meet kettle.

I think there is a better than 50/50 chance that Skywest may help United out...It wouldn't be the first case of the tail starting to wag the dog...

And as a mighty 737 pilot for Southwest...............what the fluck do you care what happens at the Regionals, and why do you bother to waste your precious free time to post on it? Are you related to General Wee?
