Re: Does MESA really deserve its "bad" reputation

As someone who works at a UA line station, I will tell you that I would take Mesa over EV (Rip), C5, and ZW any day of the week!

Re: Express Jet (IAH) having crew staffing issues?

They've been having crew shortages for a while now and have preemptively been cancelling flights, especially out of ewr, b/c of crew shortage for the past month.

Re: Funniest in-flight announcements?

Recently one of my United Pilots referred to his FO as Tom Kazansky and himself as Pete Mitchell.

For those of you don't get the reference, that'd be Iceman and Maverick of Top Gun!

Re: GSP to Germany?

It would be cool to see! Since BA announced LHR-CHS, anything is possible, I suppose. I feel like as far as international service goes, AC on GSP-YYZ or maybe YUL is more likely to happen first. A flight to MUC or FRA would require something to be done about the customs facilities. IIRC, they are l...

Re: Why doesnt UA level Terminal C EWR?

Just arriving... Mix of old and new. Narrow walkways between concourses. Up and down. Low ceilings. Pillars and escalators with no clear line of sight anywhere. Homeless against pillars in baggage claim. It is functional, but not worthy of a crown jewel hub for one of the worlds largest airlines. S...

Like most posters have said, that's pretty common on those Airbuses, esp in Florida, but better safe than sorry I guess!

Re: Same station manager working multiple cities for an airline?

Are there scenarios where an airline's station manager works at more than one airport for an airline, including commuting between the two airports? Think of this scenario: - Ethiopian serves both Bahrain and Dammam airports - The two airports are served on alternating dates, no flights into both ai...

Re: UA to ILM

I reside in Wilmington and worked ramp here with ACA from station operators I 98 until we closed in 01. I'm excited to see my favorite airline come back. I plan on applying. For that few flights, they'll probably just contract with DGS to operate the station. Or Piedmont, either way, I doubt they o...

Re: United Regional CPAs

Does "Cape Air does not have a CPA" mean the ATRs in Guam are at-risk flying? What do you mean by at-risk flying? In a typical agreement, the major agrees to take on all the risk in the arrangement. They pay a set amount to the regional which generally covers all costs and gives a slight ...

Re: AA drops 6 NFL charter operations

It has been a bit since the news came out about AA dropping the six teams. We know Miami Air is picking up the Dolphins and Steelers. Has anyone heard who the rest of the teams will use this year? They're going to throw an entire American football team on a 738? I know that the Ravens typically use...

Re: American mainline returning mainline to GSP?

Word on the street is Mesa is having a hard time covering all of their flying right now. Looks like AA has 2 Super 80's a day to/from DFW penciled in for the month of April to help cover it. Doesn't look like a permanent thing though.
