Yes the UA ground handling of Mesa flights that are not Mesa operated stations with Mesa people is horrible, especially in ORD and IAD. Mesa is not the only one who has these problems with UA on the express side. Mesa may not be perfect but you can't place all the blame for the poor numbers solely on them and UA knows this.
I guess there's a reason they say: "Ignorance is bliss" The above quote is a textbook example.
First of all, UA
does not handle YV
operations at IAD
is perfectly capable of screwing it up on their own. UA
has had to pull down YV
flying from more than one hub due to YV
's shortage of pilots. I'll be the first to say that YV
has a shitty contract with UA
, but that's YV
's own fault, no one forced them to sign a contract. YV
is critically short on pilots and losing them at a 3 loss/1 gain ratio per month. If YV
really cared anything about their service, they'd drop the money-losing Hawaii debacle and get those pilots back flying the (money making) fee-for-departure lines that they are now losing left and right. Mesa only proves that as bad as everyone thinks management is at their legacy, it's plenty worse at YV
