Hi there folks, coming to the USa next week on DLH and connecting from CLT-CAK on USairways operated by MESA. Can you guys tell me about mesa? I presume our equipment will be CRJ? I was wondering how it works that UsAirways and United and other airlines can all have their short hops operated by one airline, i am curious as we don't have that in turkey, is this some kind of variant of code share?
The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!

There are several regional airlines in the US that the major airlines outsource their short flights to to save cash. Some of these regional airlines, like American Eagle, Comair and ASA, are owned by the major airline that uses them, while others, like Mesa, are independent.
Mesa has a bad reputation among the regionals for hugely underpaid employees, very poor operational performance, and bad customer service.
