When Does Trans States Begin Service For UA?

Sat Nov 01, 2003 7:16 am

Hey all, As many of you know, Trans States Airlines will begin service operating on behalf of United Express... I've heard the aggreement calls for a reasonable amount of ERJs to be flying out of ORD, however, I would suspect that they'll start flying out of IAD as well, in place of ACA. So when does TSA beign their flying for United? Thanks for any help!

And just a few years ago UA could not wait to dump Trans States and it's ATPs. My how desperation works in this industry.

Weren't the ATPs operated by United feeder service which was owned by Trans states? Also, not to long ago... in 00 and 01 I believe, TSA was flying ERJs for United Express!

ACV,
my how the chance to redeem yourself would awaken a sleeping giant.

What a good sign for ual and tsa, bye, bye ACA, they suck and their being replaced is a sign things are getting better.

ACvitale- I also remember when they dumped Mesa Group-Westair, NPA and all those, because their reliability etc was so bad for UAL. Now they are the best bedfellows. Desparation really changes things!

Some of the 145s that were just purchased from Crossair are being painted in United colors. I also heard that TSA is taking delivery of some new planes. I would asssume that some of these will be painted blue and gray as well.
