A Mesa pilot that I met when he got stuck in STL because his dispatch took out a plane without having a replacement handy gave me these two alternative meanings for MESA (if it were an acronym):

My Extremely Sh*tty Airline.

They have made some improvements, and I'm a bit biased because I have friends that work there and I like the variety of equipment they fly; but I don't know if I would go as far as naming them Regional Airline Of the Year.

From what my buddies tell me, they still need quite a bit of improvement in the employee relations department. In any case, congratulations to MESA, they have been posting profits every quarter in the past few years, so they deserve a little credit I suppose.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Flew Mesa once, that was enough... Not to mention doing market research for them a year ago. As far as work goes... I am the boss.

I believe it. I flew them to vancouver. New plane, great service. F/As had great humor. Better than SW.

It's good that they are making money, but it's too bad the company is too poorly run to make any good use of it.

Well, they're talking about it:

I have had little experience with them, and it was way back when, FLG to PHX on a Dash-8. Back then I would say it wasn't that bad, but then again, it was a really short flight!

I still think QX (Horizon Air) should be the Regional Airline Of The Year. They are definitely better than Mesa. Robert NWDC10

If my vote counted, it would be for SkyWest. I like Chautauqua (<-- spelling?) also.

Personally, it seems I have always had bad experiences on YV. They have some cute F/A's on the CR7 though...

However, I have a roommate who works for RDUZW, and he says they (ZW) would rather work a YV flight than one of their own...

You can tell this award really has nothing to do with operations or the state of moral at their company. I'm sorry, yes Mesa makes money but it's at the expense of their employees. I have flown Mesa, worked Mesa flights, and I don't have a lot of good things to say about them.

Ask anyone at F9 who they would rather run there express jets. Hands down QX,were ATW came up with Mesa is beyond me.Having worked at both HP and QX. There is NO comparison on who is better. QX by far,we are at the top or near the top of every travel poll for best regional out there.

I think I will go and drink some more red cool aid now! :}

This award is an absolute joke. Its one of those fake awards they just give to someone different every year so the management can pat themselves on the back.

Last year it went to Chautauqua, and the year before ExpressJet. Comair, and Mesaba have also won it in recent years.

I mean seriously, if Mesa can get this, there are problems.
As said, employee moral is absolutely horrible.
Everytime I've been on one of their flights, I have had some interesting experiences to say the least.

Notice how not many Mesa employee's come running to the rescue here. Can't say that I blame them.

I can say this from my time with HP. Mesa employees have got the worst attitudes of any airline employees I have ever seen. I can only imangine it has got to have something to do with management. I do no that EVERY time I tried to non-rev on them that it was a new low for customer service. I would never treat PAX the way I witnessed while flying with Mesa.
