Hulas doesn't have the money for ExpressJet. Even if Hulas bought (or was given) ExpressJet, one list would be VERY unlikely. Nevets, rolling everyone into one airline at Trans States Holdings would not be an instant fix for anything. That scumbag helped write the book on union wrangling tactics, along with Ornstein. That just has "Bad Deal" written all over it.

Like I said, it's a big if. And I would only be open to it IF it was part of the deal. Which pretty much means I'm not for it since he would probably never go for that. But, yes, if they put all the pilots on one list, I would be open to fighting any wrangling tactics because I believe that would be the lesser of being whipsawed by your own CEO.

Call me an idealist but I'm honest to my own convictions and don't just do what is solely best for myself. I tend to look at big picture and look at the long view.

Thats a very nice testimony you've written for yourself there. Is that in your cover letter somewhere?

What a disrespectful piece of crap you are. How about offering something useful on this topic. Go back to Facebook, ding dong. I'm sure sure you have many "friends" there.

Whatever, call me naive instead if it makes you feel better. My conscience is clean either way.

Nevets is an idiot if he would rather work for Hulas.

Maturity and professionalism on display. Oh wait.....this is why I tend not to hang out on this website much.
Are you saying you're usually busy sucking d*%k?

Delta is taking control of their regional feed by operating more DC-9, MD-80/90, and soon 717's to those markets once served by RJs. It is clear that Delta is working towards eliminating/reducing RJ service as much as possible.

There is no need for Delta to "take control of a bunch of pilots for the shortage" because Delta will never have a pilot shortage. Delta will always have the option to hire pilots of their choosing - in the past, that hiring order has proven to exhibit the following:

1. military pilots
2. female/minority pilots
3. regional jet pilots

While I don't agree with that order, it is the reality we live in. A pilot should be hired based on his/her piloting skills, airmanship, and professionalism - not their ethnicity or gender.

Which brings me to my next point: Delta will never buy ASA/XJT because that purchase would bring with it some of our "misfit" pilots, whose sole purpose in life seem to only exist to stir up trouble, i.e. The White Dragon, The Palm, etc.

These rumors of Delta looking to purchase ASA/XJT reminds me of the wishful talk that Pinnacle (Endeavor) pilots spoke of before voting themselves into that rotten deal. There is a high probability that Endeavor will soon face the same challenges that Comair once did, and we all know how that ended. I certainly hope the pilot group at ASA/XJT don't go down that same path.

Wishful talk? Why would someone be wishful of being bought by delta? It's the kiss of death.

Anyone know when the White Dragon will retire finally? She appeared to be about 75 a few years ago.

I'll bet she gets a quadruple water cannon they'll be so happy.

Believe it or not she's only been here 15yrs. (DOH 08/03/1998) She's number 270 according to the July 2013 list. I think we may have a little ways to go before she retires.

She's only 60. Plenty of hard landings left in her.
