What United is doing about ORD
is filling in the slots that ACA
feeds with 6 different airlines to certain levels. As it stand, and what UA
has printed, the airlines out of ORD
operating under the UAX banner are Air Wisconsin (has been doing ORD
for a long time), Sky West (also like Air Wiskey been a UAX carrier for a while but new to ORD
routes), Mesa, Transtates, and soon Republic/Chataqua, and Shuttle America.
Right now even with ACA
still doing flights out of ORD
and Rebuplic/Chataqua and Shuttle America not starting as yet, F concourse at ORD
looks like a mess. You got EMB-145, CRJ 200, CRJ 700, and BAE 146s for five different airlines all parked there, plus they're so short on gate space it's not unusual to see 5-6 jets parked in the penalty box (holding box) on a good day.
As for ACA
/ IAir I hope they do well since I got a few friends working over there and i hate to see them lose there job. Most of the ones that are ORD
base and live in the area are dreading IAir for one thing ORD
isn't going to be a base and to keep there job there going to have to move or commute to IAD
Just My 2 centsVI
