    Current Regional Bases

    Houston is the number 1. No state income tax and sales tax around 7%. I'm really not sure about ATL, IAD or DTW. ORD is quite expensive, but a lot of fun too. CLE is dying and EWR ranks up with ORD for high cost of living.

    XJT MEC declares war on ASA pilots.

    How about a new thread titled "Legacy ExpressJet pilots declare war on Joe Merchant". That's one I'd subscribe to. You're a weenie Joe.

    US air thanks but no thanks letter

    Yes I did think of that. And no, I do not have a 737 type. That said, I've been at my regional for 8 years. I want out. USAirways was never my 1st, 2nd or 6th choice. The fact is that they are hiring, and a little optimism on my part about them improving their awful family feud; and their...

    After reading that, I REALLY can't imagine who would ever work for such nickel and dime cheapskates. Run...fast.

    US Airways attending Aero Crew Solutions Job Fair

    Funny you mention that. I wonder if they are that smart at airways as to keep newhires from bidding the 737? I know the posting says it is for the 190, but others who were in class this year had reported that newhires had openings on the 190, 320 & 737. If I were a RJ Captain with a few...

    ExpressJet j/s issue ...

    Don't know about Colgan, but no you can't sit in the cabin on the old COEX routes. On the UAX side most agents know how to list you for a Jumpseat, but sitting in the cabin. While technically you aren't allowed, as long as you have been added to the passenger manifest there really is no problem...

    Expressjet growing?

    If they come over they keep longevity for pay and vacation. They are at the bottom of the list until the two lists are merged, then their old ASA seniority kicks in to land them in the new, combined list. Sounds better than a furlough if you ask me. To each their own I suppose.

    Hey XJET guys...

    @ Skaff - I've made my point. I'm not about to rebut your inaccuracies. But please feel free to fight merging our two lists. I know I'll be doing the exact opposite on my side.

    Hey XJET guys...

    @ TDK90 - Great post. I'm in favor of a union that will represent all of us equally. Basically I want an in house union like IPA at UPS or APA at American.

    Hey XJET guys...

    We are one group divided into CRJ and ERJ pilots. The CRJ flying is being reduced, while we need pilots for the ERJ. Since our seniority lists have not yet been integrated, the two MECs have firmed up a deal to let CRJ pilots fly the ERJ and keep their longevity for pay but be temporarily placed...

    Hey XJET guys...

    Wow. Where to start...? Ok how about this isn't about "us" before "you". It's about "you" riding our negotiating coattails and then being handed growth while "we" furlough. It's about securing a brighter future for all of us employed by SkyWest. Its really about the bigger picture; something you...

    Hey XJET guys...

    @ eaglepilot6 - to clarify, we are two companies owned by the same holding corporation. And yes, I think pushing for one unified group out trumps what the two MECs are currently doing. One list prevents whipsaw. They're setting the stage for that right now by having ExpressJet furlough while...

    Hey XJET guys...

    WTF was up with the email today from SH??? I about threw up when I read that "he" will help junior CRJ guys get in interview at SkyWest, as they will be hiring 15 a month indefinitely. If this doesn't convince you that we all need to be on one list then I just don't know what will. Our parent...
