    I give this a huge :rolleyes:

    S5 has a proven track record and does a very good job of managing the E170/5 operation for UA and DL.

    Yeah, clearly UA didn't pick Mesa for its operational reliability. Of course, ExpressJet's reliability is a far cry from what it once was, but I'd still rather see them flying these planes than Mesa.

    I'm sure it was a case of the lowest bidder winning.

    That's absolutely what it was. Near-term lowest cost wins in all situations these days.

    I almost wish the ConUniHound merger had gone through, instead.

    With bus service to several destinations, are we sure it didn't?

    ETA: If they start serving night train in a paper bag as the complementary club booze, that will be confirmatory evidence.

    Sent from a place using a fruit thing.
