I don't recall any planes in those colors, but all of the signage for WestPac at DEN
(for the year or so that they existed there) was using the grey-and-red scheme.
What killed them, IMHO, was their initial decision to split the COS
hub between DEN
. By the time they moved all ops to DEN
, it was too late no matter what they did.
As I've posted here before, my Mom was actually on a WestPac flight EWR
the morning that they announced they were ceasing ops. I dropped her off at EWR
and heard about the shutdown on the way home later on. Her flight took off and went back to DEN
with passengers onboard, and they announced enroute that no connecting flights would be departing from DEN
. Upon arrival, it was basically a mess: no one to marshall the plane in, no one to deal with the bags, and no one to answer questions. She ended up getting back to PDX
on a United flight a few days later and spent some time with family instead, no big deal at all.
