Today (Friday, April 30) is the last day of United Express CRJ-200 operations for Mesa. The remaining operating CRJ-200's for UA are being removed from service throughout today and tonight.

(5) Repositioning flights have already taken place between Dulles (IAD) and Tucson. There are additional flights to TUS from various outposts later today, tonight and supposedly tomorrow. The CRJ-200's removed earlier this year from UA operations were parked at Columbia, SC (CAE) but apparently there is no more room there for the fleet, so it's Tucson.

IAD, CRJ

Don't forget the DH2s as well. And just in case people are not aware, YV will still be flying 20 CR7s for UA so they are not ending UAX service altogether.

Edit: Oops, just realized your last flightaware link was for the DH2 but you didn't mention the DH2 anywhere else.

Well Mesa screwed the pooch here on this. All they had to do was get CR7 to replace the CR2 by todays date and they messed it up. Shouldn't have been to difficult to put a note on ones calendar saying new/new used CR7's needed for United by today's date, and then everything would be fine.

Oh well, that's what you get with lack luster management who has the "I just don't care" attitude.

I routinely work with YV here in DEN. In fact, I was one of the last to work the DH2's today.

Great frontline people to work with at YV but like you say, the higher-ups just don't have their stuff together. Total lack of guidance and leadership at that company, unfortunately.

I'm very saddened by the lost of great Dash crews in DEN, they were probably the best crews except they got a bad gig working for Mesa. I hope they find better places.

I worked the Dash's a few years ago in DRO and though they were a great aircraft when they are in good shape. I would love to see OO pick up the Q200 or better the Q400.

I've been hoping for that for a long time. OO has a pretty big operation here at ORD, and I would love to see the Q400 in UA Express livery. I've never heard of anyone that didn't enjoy flying on that airplane...

It looks like the conversion companies will have a large selection of CRJs to turn into Biz-Jets

I flew on a YV CR2 (UAX) from FWA-ORD and back last year, connecting to ATL on UA mainline. (Don't ask me why Priceline put me on UA and not the DL nonstop.)

I was expecting the worst, but the crew was great, the plane worked and was clean by RJ standards, and the departing flight from FWA was on-time. Unfortunately, UA ground at ORD was as crabby as ever, and the pilot on the return segment ORD-FWA was late, but the pilot problem was probably poor staffing. Can't blame the employees for that.

Their service will be missed, but I feel that UA chose the right replacements in EV and XJ.

If UA/CO goes through, you might see it sooner than you think.

I meant XE (ExpressJet). XJ is a 100% Delta-owned subsidiary.

Oops.
