    BURLINGTON, Vt. — A Chicago-bound United Airlines regional jet made an emergency landing in Vermont shortly after takeoff after an engine failed and a report of smoke in the cargo hold.
    Burlington International Airport operations specialist Patrick Sharrow says United Airlines Flight 3785 landed safely at 6:28 a.m. EST Wednesday after being in the air for about 10 minutes. No one was reported injured.

    Yay, more Mesa troubles. Why can't Skywest operate all of UA's RJs?

    Simple... OO failed to underbid YV for UAX services and OO is making more money flying these planes for DL than UA so there you go...

    I wouldn't fault OO for this; I'd fault COUA for not looking at things beyond price.

    Actually, UACO does look beyond price, XE's bid was slightly higher than OO/YV for 50 seat flying a few years ago and they went along with XE because they are a quality vendor in comparison to the other carriers but in this case YV severely underbid themselves so OO could not match.

    No objections to XE; XE is owned by the same parent company as SkyWest.

    It is now but this was BEFORE XE was absorbed by OO... 2009 or so.

    I just avoid RJS as much as I can.
