this isn't a conflict of interest at all. JetExpress was moved to a complete control by frontier and not Mesa, so Mesa really doesn't have much of a say in where their planes go, just as long as they get paid.
Mesa is also adding 6 CRJs to the JetExpress fleet..... expect more Frontier cities soon!

American Eagle serves AA and AS out of LAX. QX serves AS and NW out of SEA, all on the same flights. While its not overly common, its not unheard of. In the Mesa case, they will dedicated ops for each carrier. Basically Mesa is just a subcontractor, working for whomever hires 'em.

It was my understanding that UAL wanted Air Wisconsin to get rid of the props in favor of an all jet fleet. We wondered who was going to serve the markets you can't get an RJ into.
As far as Frontier Vs. United Service. There will probably be a no compete clause in the contract. If Frontier already serves a destination, then Mesa can't serve it flying in United colors, only frontier colors.
So UAL hired the company that it fired twice and sued once? Yep... that makes alot of sense. Morons.

The original JetExpress agreement as filed with the SEC forbid Mesa operating for UA in Frontier's markets. Did Frontier change their mind and give away something by agreeing to allow Mesa to operate for another airline out of DEN? Or is this still in effect? We'll have to see what routes they end up with.
The old Agreement's relevant paragraph: 25.5 Except for codeshare agreements with America West Airlines, Inc., USAirways, Inc. and Midwest Express Airlines, Inc., Mesa agrees not to enter into another codeshare agreement with a carrier hubbed in Denver for markets served by Frontier that originate or end in Denver, Colorado.

It will be a long time before Air Wisconsin will ever get rid of the BAE-146. They just added SFO-ASE this year due to the service that they can gain from the 146. It is a great airplane to use in a mountain region. As well, AWAC worked out an excellent deal with the company of whom they lease these planes from.

Mesa has flown for UAL in the past out of Denver and ended service in the late 90's over what was called contract problems. I think this is a good Plus for UAL they needed to get the regional house in order and catch up with DAL and CO.
