DELTANET>NETWORK PLANNING>CURRENT DELTA BULLETINS> Bulletin #400.

You can figure out what date Comair will be shut down and who is getting the remaining 700 and 900 flying.

My condolences to everyone at this once proud airline.

Interestingly I read that bulletin this morning and it does not indicate any "news" or changes in flying from what has previously been announced.

Also, do we REALLY need ANOTHER thread about the potential impending demise of Comair? It's really getting tiring reading posts of people seemingly frothing at the mouth over the potential Comair shut down...

(Additionally, the information presented in the aforementioned bulletin is proprietary information and can't be discussed on here in any detail until it is loaded into the Delta system several days hence.)

Comair may very well be shut down. But, nothing in any "bulletin" I've read recently would indicate that is the case. We'll know soon enough.

Comair pilots shouldn't have any problem transitioning to other airlines in the near future. It's just a gigantic pain in the ass for them. I regret that anyone has to go through this type event. This type of torture seems to be common in the airlines. Hopefully, brighter days are coming soon for all of us...

Looks like a lot of OH flights being replaced by just about every other DCI carrier in the Oct/Nov time frame. Doesn't look good from my point of view...

Several flights being replaced in the Sep time frame, too. So, we CRJ guys may have Sep off just like a lot had the last half of Aug off.

Having reread said bulletin line by line, I'm more optimistic than pessimistic about Comair's future/status quo than I have been in weeks.

I think the OP doesn't know how to read a schedule bulletin

Yup
Meeting slated for Thurs night for Comair mgmt. Big D is supposedly holding a press conference Thurs night to announce sometime prior to Friday morning. Waking up Friday morning you will know. Put it this way, it's not good news.

Have you considered the possibility that you don't know how to read a bulletin? There's one word I would describe how I feel about the future, and it's not "optimistic."

Same way they did DFW closing for ASA.

There aren't huge changes for OH in that bulletin. Some holiday CX's as one would expect and re-times. Flights well into the new year. Now that can change, but there's no sign of massive shutdown in either the A or B sked release.

"A" means the flight as operated is being discontinued.
"B" tells you what it's being replaced by.
How many 'B's do you see for OH?

From APC:

"Heard from a reliable source on Virginia Ave that all CRJ-200 flying will end on 9/4 and the rest will be wound down by the 28th."

Quite the "demise of Comair" cheerleader aren't we?!
