It's been too quiet...AWAC isn't going anywhere. In other news, they have until Monday to finish talks with the unions, or the contracts are up for "disposal." Going to be an interesting few weeks for UA...

I wish UAL would keep AWAC, IMO, AWAC is the better UAX carrier. I like the crews, planes, and they know what the word quick turn means. I wish I could say that about SKYWEST, and MESA but they are mediocre at best.

I wish United would just buy out AWAC and the others and operate them as "Part of United". I think this would clear up several isuues with the UAX system. BUT, since we all know that won't happen, AWAC is the best of the three and losing them would hurt us in the long run.
I love the rumble of a 727 takeoff in the morning!

If UA did buy say three of the express carriers, it would really help deal with a number of issues. AA, DL, NW all have some sort of controlling stake in their epxress carriers. UA would never have to worry about a repeat of the ACA deal!
