All the pilots I talk to have heard rumors about the future of Comair. They're discussed all the time, during crew changes, in Operations, walking around Concourse C, or even over a beer.

I guess the newest rumors revolve around ex-owners considering buying Comair maybe in an IPO.

Anyone heard more about this rumor or have any others to add??
Future Planes? Future Hiring? Etc.,etc.

Thanks,
Jet

Mesa will buy Comair in the near future...Delta will still enter bankrupcy....ASA and Comair will revolt to form one company....new company will replace Delta as the new legacy carrier....Any questions?

OK, No one else has heard a rumor....

I heard we're being sold to the old owners at the beginning of next month. I heard we're getting 40 EMB 170s over the next three years. We're also getting 35 Q-400's over the next four years that we're going to fly for United out of Denver.

I heard all Comair pilots are really test tube science projects from the labs at ALPA national bred to bring management to their knees...............At first it looked like the plan was working but then the creatures revolted against mother ALPA. You take it from here..........

I heard that ComAir was a regional airline and this should be posted in the correct forum.

Oh boy. It's only a matter of time now before one of the Comair RJDC-loving pukes comes in here to yell at you for saying he doesn't work at a major.

Comair guys keep hoping their old owners would buy them back, so they don't have to face the fact that they'll work for Mesa.

I heard a rumor that Comair was, indeed, considered a 'Major' airline by the powers-that-be, due to the number of sump'n er other. I can't remember what, though. :(

yea, comair people don't like to use the "R" word. Then are not to sure what to call themselfs and mutter something about being a major thats, kinda regional. the rumors for now are biznass as usaul maybe an IPO and the Q400 are a very hot topics. i have not heard anything about mesa, i dont belive that.

Comair is a regional, one of the best. but would go the same way FLYi did if Comair didn't have Delta.

The hot rumor I've been hearing lately is that GECAS is interested in buying us. I hate to burst everyone's bubble, but Mesa just doesn't have enough cash to buy Comair. The GECAS rumor does seem to have some pretty good backing. One of the Chief Pilots told me.(There's no way one of the Comair CP's would EVER spread fake stories) :p


I've also heard a LOT about getting the Q400. It's a great airplane for what it does.

I understand that Mesa can't write the check for us. I also understand that nothing prevents us from being sold piecemeal. some of you would love to see us out on the street, but I would kind of like to keep my job. Careful what kind of karma you create.

Mesa doesn't have to have cash to buy Comair. They can get get outside backing from banks or private investors. It's a very rare thing for companies to be purchased with cash. Only cash-flow kings like UPS can do that. Most companies acquire and merge by using credit lines from multiple banks or by securing capital from private investors. Mesa purchasing Comair is certainly not out of the question.
