I don't see anything to PVD in the schedules - do you have any more information.

BTW, for the 2 other people who care, Commutair's DH8 CLE flights start in march to MDT and HPN...

Nope. Nothing seems to have been loaded yet, but that's straight info from our computer system.

Will Chautauqua and ExpressJet both operate on individual routes or will they "specialize" in their own spokes? (There's probably a better way to ask that question.)

CHQ will operate both the CRJ and ERJ-145 for CoEx.

It looks like they will mix together. From IAH, MSP and OKC now have both Expressjet and Chautauqua. Would guess CLE will be the same.

Chautauqua Airlines dba as Continental Express, and I imagine they'll be in the familiar CO white fusilage, gray bottom and bule tail with a gold, blue and white globe.

Thought that would be the case as of Monday, but watched N638BR come in and still no titles or globe...N656BR operated the first flights (SDF-IAH-OKC) while N638BR handled the other duties (MSP-IAH-SDF)...It does have operated by Chautauqua Airlines in light grey behind and below the gold stripe/L1 door.

You must have had the same computer system that delivered mine  Smile

The 2 CHQ CRJ's I saw today at IAH did not have the gold tail and looked like they should have been going to maintenance rather than revenue flights.........what a pitty, you'd think they would have gotten their entire act together before starting their dba Continental Express, yet another example of the lack of seamless transition to this new operation for CO passengers.

First 4 airplanes will not have the globe on the tail in order to get IOE done on intitial captain group flying for USAirways, therefore blue tail colors.

Not bitter at all, just think they should be painted since they've had quite a few months knowing their mission on 1/8/07!

The reason they weren't painted, as stated above, was so they could be operated in the USAirways system up until now to get the crews signed off, etc.

If they weren't sure of their mission - they wouldn't have shown up :-P

I see the reason for not painting the first 4, however find it difficult to believe that a first class outfit as CHQ could not have worked around these issues by getting IOE accomplished earlier which would have allowed for the painting....but in the grand scheme, it is what it is!

The mission I hoped would be a seamless transition to these CRJ's, meaning crews and planes all ready, shinned up and starting a first class CRJ operation, but then I have high expectations at times.

Hopefully CLE will be the first class operation.

Expressjet has no control over their own COEX operation. The Expressjet quality you speak of is directly related to Continental itself.

I'd have to disagree with that assessment, as far as front-line employees. The overwhelming majority of pilots and f/a's I know from XJT are just as professional and as customer service-oriented as their CO counterparts, and they're a key reason why the service is so seamless between the two.

Off topic sorta,

Whens Commutair starting the Dash to PIT? (I was told it by one of the captains I commuted with that it would be one of the first cities to get the Dash).


Anywho watched a Chautauqua CRJ land today, yea in just plain colors without the Globe or titles.

And from what ive heard, They are going to be PDC capable soon. That'll be great.

We provide the same quality service on our flights as XJT and CO do on theirs. I worked the 2nd SDF-IAH on Mon and it was great. I am on a CO 4 day right now on a great overnight here in IAH. Hard to get the IOE done when the ground school started in the late fall. Our mechanincs had to get the airplanes from the Swamp in ZPH to get them up to standards. ACA left them in really bad condition. Almost all of our Captains are done with OE and the new FO's are coming online very shortly. Yes the Globe will be there in a short bit. We are going to 150 flights a day out of IAH in Feb. CO is very impressed with us as well as the first batches of passengers are very happy as well.

The plane was there, but no crew to fly it. I'm guessing lack of crew members since they are reportedly still doing IOEs for the CRJ.

My god the way some of you guys are bashing CHQ is just childish. You are some of the very same folks that get riled up when others pick on Continental, try and remember how it feels. Remember that CHQ has employees that work hard just as hard as those at XJT. A few bad apples? Sure, but what company doesn't have those? You're understandably upset by the loss of the contract, but don't pick on CHQ for that.

And their teething problems will work themselves out. I can't imagine that the addition of the very first CO Express ERJ's was perfectly smooth either.

Chautauqua is a fantastic airline. They've been flying most of our CVG runs for almost a year now and I couldn't be happier with them. I've never seen them cancel a flight, the crews are great to work with, and the service is certainly above average. They'll do great for CO, they're the best choice they could have made.

IAT-ICT.....the operation began when everything was in place with crews and airplane.  Smile

How long had CHQ management known of the start date on 1/8/07? How long were the Indy CRJ's sitting and waiting to be flown again? Why did the crews seemingly get their IOE at what seemed like the last minute?

Not bashing, only curious as I am sure other are.

this might be out of the question or something for yall but I was away for some time and havent really understood this whole Chautauqua thing with COex. My primary question is, what will happen with ExpressJet Airlines? Will they still be flying as Continental Express - Always or just some routes, or what? what will happen with ExpressJet???

My understanding is ExpressJet will still be the largest commuter carrier operating for and with CO. CO is just reducing the amount of flying ExpressJet does for them and ExpressJet will also be utlizing some of their freed up aircraft for charter work, plus the possibulity of operating for another carrier in addition to CO. I hope this helps a little BQNCO ?
