Will NW be closing some cities after getting rid of 35 ARJ's??? If I was Mesaba I might start looking for other code-share opps.
|Quoting DLKAPA (Reply 3):|
If I were XJ there would be no "might" about it. I'd be scrambling to put jets back in the air with anybody who will take them.
|Quoting LUVRSW (Reply 4):|
One problem...XJ doesn't own any jets, they are basicly a subcontractor for NW, with labor only being contracted...NW leases/owns the jets. XJ could approach UAL and say "We have 3500 people for you....do you have any planes for us?"

|Quoting EMBQA (Reply 8):|
Mesaba also have a very large number of Saab 340's which are not owned by Northwest.... and with Northwest defaulting on these payments it will make it harder for Mesaba to pay their bills.
|Quoting LCH (Reply 10):|
Keep in mind thath the only company WN ever bought was Morris Air,
|Quoting TOLtommy (Reply 11):|
All of Mesaba's aircraft are leased from NW.
|Quoting TOLtommy (Reply 14):|
Those aircraft may be owned by other groups, but they do NOT directly lease the planes to Mesaba. The planes are leased to NW, who subleases them to Mesaba.
