Rumor: SkyWest Airlines Mgmt Shakeup Coming?

Heard an odd rumor, but a fun one. Could it be that Brad Holt at ExpressJet was only the beginning of a major upheaval in the management of the SkyWest Inc airlines and the SkyWest Airlines management is indeed about to be asked to collectively fall on their swords? Certainly, since Ron Reber left, ...

Health/Future Of Trans States Holdings

I'm curious, and I hope someone else knows more. I know TSH owns Trans States Airlines, GoJet, and Compass. Of the three, I've only interacted with GoJet people and planes personally. But the announcements of E175 contracts and union negotiations as well as pilot shortage fears have me wondering. Tr...

RE: Delay Chaos:Ultra Orthodox Won't Sit Next To Women

Look, even if you need to seat 100 folks at the back of economy on a 747, I have little doubt that the folks you displace forward into economy aren't going to mind moving up. I'm not talking about moving people into other cabins, just within the one... come on... It wouldn't take all that long. I ra...

RE: Delay Chaos:Ultra Orthodox Won't Sit Next To Women

Gracious, this all turned into a much bigger mess than it needed to, didn't it? More than half the unreasonable seeming, last minute seating requests are made to gain better seats, and the fastest way to resolve them is this: "I understand completely, give me a quick minute to call back, and we'll g...

RE: Republic To Wind Down UA Q400/add E-175s

To me, this raises three other questions: 1. O.k. United, now you have 120-130 regional jets with 12 first class seats, but you've maintained an incredibly low number of first class seats on reasonably longish haul mainline craft, specifically the 319, WHY? and will you fix that? 2. Unless the dispa...

RE: UA Awards UAX Ground Handling To Menzies At DEN

I think one of the real puzzle pieces that isn't being figured in to the discussion from the SkyWest mgmt side is that United has universally chosen vendors who will NOT receive any form of flight benefit on the airline. And they have been consistent in that - in every contract award for several yea...

RE: Why Do Airlines "hate" The ERJ / CRJ Now?

Too, when a lot of small cities were reduced to RJs only, their expensive mainline employees were told to move, or let go. And the management of those small stations were transferred to the hands of the carriers who were flying the RJs for a whole lot less on the ground as well. It was the beginning...

RE: Why Do Airlines "hate" The ERJ / CRJ Now?

Er, there are some misunderstandings creeping in here... when the 50 seaters were introduced FAA averages for both bags and passenger weights were different. That played a huge part in the calculations for what could go on the plane. If a standard bag is assumed to be 25lbs, not 30, you have more to...
