On June 6 United started serving FCA (using Skywest CRJ's) and for the first arrival FCA threw a party to commemeorate the new service inviting local VIP's and the media. When the RJ showed up it was in Skywest's generic paint instead of their United connection paint. So most people thought it was a Delta flight like all the other skywest RJ's they see everyday.
My question is who decides what aircraft to send on an inagural flight and shouldn't some priority be given to one that would help the marketing?
