So SKW will announce today at 3PM central time that united using Comair, rather then SKW to do the ground handling at 16 different stations. Seems like comair may be getting out of the flying business and going into the ramp business. This will also force SKW to close their Chicago training center.

Is there a web board somewhere where all the Skywest ramp agents will be calling Comair ramp agents "whores"?

Is it possible that Comair has been purchased by United or an intermediary investment group that will replace some or all of Skywest services for United?

Not according the the meetings in St. George. United had these stations out for bid, and Comair came in with a lower bid. I dont know what the revenue lost will be for OO, I have no idea what the contracts are worth. But no Comair has not been purchased by UAL.

In Chicago? Only if Cripps, Bloods, Latin Kings and Gangster Disciples are considered unions.

Wow, you really took some time filling out the aircraft flown section.:laugh:
You even took the time to let us know you have flown a 172S, and a 172F.:beer:

I've been on FI since that was all I could fill in.

Oddly enough, it came in handy when I had to write up previous aircraft flown for a recent application.

So you are telling us that to fill out an application you referenced your FI account? "

Hmmmm what airplanes have I flown? Wait I know, FI.com user CP here I come!"

I doubt it. The 'no furlough history' is quoted in regards to pilots here.
