Just like United, Delta, Usair and America West handed over routes to Mesa to be operated more cheaply than they can do it themselves, that's exactly what UA is doing...according to you...at SFO.
Perhaps you didn't realize that most mainline employees feel exactly the same way as you toward feeder airlines.
What a pity.
As a previous mainline employee, and current one as of two days ago, I can say I don't feel that way towards any regional counterparts I know, neither do most of the mainline agents I've worked with. We are more disappointed in the management more so than anything, but obviously we have the ability to understand the reasons why contract flying takes place. Wasn't it your company that created song? And is it mesa's fault ATL
is an Airtran hub? Did mesa create Southwest? Because of my geographic location I've had the opportunity to work with a regional carrier before, wasn't my first pick of jobs, but I've have learned that without companies like this, a lot of mainline flying wouldn't happen, well unless you feel that a Boeing 757 would be a profitable equipment choice to fly five times a day between Yakima and SLC
, or perhaps an A320 from Medford to Chicago? Yeah that is, as you put it, a "pitty." Whats worse is some mainline employees (uh hum) are so bitter about the situation, it makes me wonder why they still work here... BTW, I don't know where you recognize any hostility between regional employees and the supposed outsourcing (groups) that are doing their jobs in certain places, not from me anyway, but I'm more or less disappointed that the airlines aren't, in many cases, running themselves anymore, but are merely a list of bank account numbers...
