Heck Maizen, I told you this months ago. And I added they would PROBABLY go daily with the new terminal. You need to listen to your elders.

Safe,
lol.. I knew it was going to happen, just didnt know it would happen now.. Now, what would be awesome is if UAL anounced seasonal 737 service... I think well have to wait another year for that one though.

BTW,


Isnt Atlantic Coast Airlines dropping their affiliation with UAL? This Delta FRJ service will presumably be handled by Atlantic Coast Airlines on the UAL side of the house. Its all confusing I tell you.. If someone could explain what is going on with ACA/Skywest/Air Wisconsin and UAL, please let me know.. I am somewhat confused.

And...
How is the FRJ as far as comfort?

The FRJ service the ACA operates as Delta Connection is unaffected by the impending cancellation of the United Express contract.

Therefor the ACA routes that operate out of ORD and IAD as United Express will be handed over to another regional provider....Air Wisconsin, or Skywest, which will be picking up a significant amount of feed out of ORD.

With only weekend only service, its safe to say that ground ops will be contracted out, probably to be handled by Northwest, in part due to their codesharing.

I wonder if Chautauqua tried to get any of those flights for UA when ACA leaves and I also wonder if they tried to get any of those new Delta Connection flights? They already have some flights as Delta Connection http://www.flychautauqua.com
