I love how the Bedford Bandwagon has set up shop in IAH but seems to have forgotten who they're flying for. US Airways...nope, United...nope, & of course the completely un-assuming CRJs. C'mon Bry, throw another color in the mix.

Holy crap at least Mesa can put the right colors on the right ramp.

I have to agree with Subin.... whats your point? Darwinism.... weeding out the weakest by becoming the strongest. bedford found HIS way to cheat darwinism was to expand to multiple airlines..... so whats wrong? Some regionals do well with one mainline carrier, like ExressJet and the currect AWAC, and some want to expand. So.... whats your point? Jealous? Sounds like he's just trying to keep his company afloat.

Really ? I guess you never saw "Barney" the Dash 8.Who's color scheme is that ? Some of the 1900's still had the "USAir" red,white and blue paint job years after the change.

my buddy is a zone controller at UAL. He says that most of the time Mesa either has something defered or return to the blocks.

Hey don't bring Mesa and UAL into this, after all - they had their contract quietly reaffirmed by UAl, without an RFP, mind you!!

Now, let's get back to bitching about RAH and their spares!!

Simple - put a Continental Express plane on...Continental's routes. Not a United one or a US Air one. Don't half ass your CRJs either. They're almost painted right. They look like the paint crew finished halway and then said "screw it".

What's so hard to understand about that?:confused:

There's nothing hard to understand about that. Even with the way CAL ditched us, I'd feel cheap and embarrassed if we were operating as "Continental Express", but didnt have the globe or even the Continental colors on our aircraft. This sort of thing used to be nearly unheard of until Bedford's Bandwagon started this trend. Now I guess other companies will be forced to conform to this in order to compete. It's just Cheap.

Look at the afternoon arrival from SDF today. I am sure that all of you who have been up in arms about this will finally be able to breath a sigh of relief. it still does not change the fact that CHQ will be continuing to fly for CAL. I know that somehow you had hoped CAL would see a globe-less tail and cancel the contract and come running back to XJT, but it ain't gonna happen. Best of luck to you and your charter flying.
