Expressjet Flying For United?

The last two times I have flown through ORD I have seen ExpressJet Aquafresh ERJ's parked on the F concourse where all the United Express flights go out of. The first time I thought it might just be a CO express flight parked there leaving the B gates for mainline, but I have seen it a couple of times, so I have to believe something is going on there.

Anyone else know anything about this?

I think it's temporary capacity for UA. Not sure how long it will last.

I believe they recently signed a 2 year deal. I scanned the linked thread and it looked like it was originally only a summer thing.

Word on the street is that Mesa has taken a Californian approach to payroll... not sure if they're related, but I've heard a lot of speculation about what might happen between Mesa and UAL this fall. It is mostly rumors on pilot boards, so it is not in any way reliable, but it does make you wonder.



When in doubt, one B pump off

I think it means something along the lines of furlough Friday's and/or IOU's for work performed as the State of California was threatening during the recent state budget impasse...

I'm guessing it's a reference to the state of California paying some of it's vendors and tax refunds with IOUs instead of real money recently.

Sorry, for being, cheeky there, yes I do mean IOUs. Both were word of mouth, if they're true I'm sure we'll be hearing more in the coming weeks, if not days.
