If you have flown MESA, how was your flight? I am mainly interested in U.S. Airways Express, but other divisons of MESA are welcome. I am interested in the inflight service, interior, crews, hubs, etc. MESA is a good airline I hear.

I am not sure how Mesa operates as US Airways Express, but under the HP name they are ok most of the time. Here in PHX they use the Dash 8 and beech 1900 turbo prop and CRJ jets. On all the aircraft I have been on all have been clean. The inflight service is sometimes better then main line HP service. I rather enjoy flying on them. Out of CMH they use all CRJ's but they will be pulling some HP Express routes as HP has signed a code with RP to provide ERJ service on some routes. Hope this helps.

Last summer I flew HPX on a Mesa CRJ PHX-EUG-PHX. Phoenix-Eugene is probably one of the longest CRJ flights in the Mesa system... probably close behind PHX-DSM and PHX-ICT. I found the service to be excellent, certainly better than what I was getting on mainline at the time. Groundgrew was very helpful and personable. And the f/a's on both segments were VERY friendly and easy to get along with. The interiors of the CRJs are rather bland though. White walls and gray leather seats, I suppose it could be dolled up a bit. Overall I had a good experience w/ Mesa.

I used to fly Mesa a lot ABQ-CNM (Albuquerque-Carlsbad, NM) on their 'house brand' Beech 1900s...I don't like the 1900 very much, but the flights were good and I loved the purple/yellow southwest paint scheme. There was, of course, no service on these flights.
