I did a search but what came back was ambiguous. I know DL cut their flying way back but I was wondering if the Mesa BK was the end of them. I flew them last summer CVG-GRR and they were okay (except for the FA who looked and acted like he was 16). Any news as to what has become of them?

Nothing has happened yet. Although with the MAG bankruptcy, my guess is the DL lawsuit will eventually be settled out of court, after which MAG will dump the ERJ leases as part of the bankruptcy.

I had one of those on a Virgin Atlantic flight, was surprised she was allowed to serve drinks.  

I love long German words like 'Freundschaftsbezeigungen'.

Not that I hate for anyone to lose their employment in this tough time, but.....
I felt they were a disaster in MCO doing the intra-florida flying. Loved the routes and times but they had a horrible performance rating in my eyes.
When Chautauqua was doing the routes I could plan day trips to FLL and TLH. When Freedom took over - I had to either go the day before or drive. I dont know who or how it was controlled but they (Freedom) seemed to be the master of the last minute maintenance issue. Along with the "delay of 20min and then after 18min, delay another 20min and so on for extended periods" which drove me nuts.

For me personally - the differences between Chautauqua and Freedom in both personell and equipment (cleanliness, operational, etc) was truley night and day.

(Stepping down from soapbox - end rant)

It seems like now they are doing a lot of CVG based flying now.
