ASA bought nothing.. SkyWest INC did the buying.. Matter of fact how did SkyWest INC have the money to buy ASA and XJT?
By we I meant the collective Skyw group. The strong arm was ual needed $80m and Skyw had it to lend, in exchange for Asa getting its foot in the door.

Your attitude illustrates that from the top down we are not one corporation, but three divided groups propagated and maintained that way by inc.

This is an idea that was presented to Inc. Three separate airlines, three separate contracts, and one master seniority list. They are not interested because it takes away their ability to suppress our wages for them to make a bit more money. And we also have an unwilling pilot group. Oh well. I don't regret anything.
Knowing what I know about the Skyw pilot group, I don't want one list. They don't have the fortitude to stand up for improvements, but would rather let everyone else do the work.

I don't think you're going to need to worry about it.

No, like I said a couple of posts ago, you guys don't want any part of them (or us). Or anyone for that matter.

While I'm not sure I agree with your premise, I agree with your conclusion. I think ( and no, I unlike others don't claim to have any insider info) that SGU will lick its wounds, pick up whatever profitable pieces there are and move on.

Latest union/ company info, from the UAL side, is that management plans to remove 130 50-seaters for the '2014-15 plan. Didn't say which carriers this will come from. Some of that flying will be replaced by 70 seaters.

Funny part is that there are around 8 gates in IAD (inner A-gates) that only a CRJ-200 or maybe a Saab 340 are short enough to fit into. Wonder if they thought about that?

'50-seat jets will have a role well into the future.'

On the time scale of an ant, perhaps.

On a side note speaking about SkyWest and UAL. Herd that UAL made coppies of SkyWest 175 training/program manuals to help Mesa out with there stuck 175 program.

Middle mgt as well as UPPER MANAGEMENT! BH is in way over his head. Part of the 'good old boy's club at SKYW I guess. If St George was serious about this mess they'd be doing something to straighten it out, and keeping BH in place isn't being totally serious. Actually surprised Delta hasn't stepped in. They've done it in the past.
SHU has been in over their collective heads for quite a while. Nepotism, favoritism, and a whole host of other dysfunctional isms are finally coming home to roost. SKYW Airline is now using fear and intimidation along with the SAPA group to motivate the pilot group. Unfortunately the pilot group has become numb and many are too busy updating their logbooks to do the additional turn or fly on their day off.
This would be entertaining, if it weren't so pathetic.
