Re: New Frontier Services

Not taking over, all the 190's flying for F9 are part of the code share.

F9 will move some 318's into MKE and 190's will go to DEN to cover those.

Also...Monday November 2, will be the last day of Midwest B717 service

Re: Republic Airways to Purchase 10 EMB 190AR from US Airways

Now I am not saying I am happy with what is happening with YX, I am not. I feel all the YX agents should be able to keep their jobs, who know how the airline runs. It does sadden me, that people I deal with in MKE who have been with YX 20 years are unemployed, no severance package, while the F9 empl...

A Very Good Article on ComAir (DL Connection)

Here is a very good and sad article on ComAir. Very sad to see how the once leading regional in the US has shrunk. I will always be grateful for being able to work for ComAir, and them allowing me to become a Aircraft Dispatcher with the company, and being there for the arrival of the first CRJ in t...

Re: SimAirline.net to Close in April 2010

I am deeply saddened by this announcement, and yet, I understand where Aaron is coming from in this decision.

This site will be deeply missed by many

Re: Republic Airways to Purchase 10 EMB 190AR from US Airways

And vice versa, I hope Delta, is doing that with Northwest. Which from all reports that is happening I see people insult Republic all the time about the Midwest and Frontier purchase. Midwest employees killed the airline themselves, long before Republic entered the picture. The YX pilots were offere...

Re: Republic Airways to Purchase 10 EMB 190AR from US Airways

We are basically getting them free, since Airways owes so much money, it is part of the loan repayment

Re: With NW going away

But Aaron, being a aviation geek and a lover of the glory days of air travel, could you imagine how beautiful a Boeing or Airbus would look in the old Chicago-Southern Scheme

Re: With NW going away

With the rich aviation history of both DL and NW, it would be nice to see DL do a heritage theme like US Airways did when they merged with America West. DL has merged or bought, Northeast (yellowbirds), Western, and I believe it was Chicago-Southern, and also a little tribute to Pan Am NW background...

Re: With NW going away

Well the DL 767-200 is the Spirit of Delta, which the employees bought and is on display at the museum

But yes that is a rather sad display

It is like when AA bought TWA, there was a 1/50'th scale DC-3 in Ozark Colors in the STL maint base, and it disappeared

Re: Frontier To Anounce New Routes

Re: With NW going away

It appears Delta is going to keep the NW history alive at their Heritage Museum You missed the days of Herman, it was beautiful. Very sad when Republic did away with the logo. But when the NW merger took place seeing the Convair 580 in NW colors. I actually flew on 2 of them from DAY-DTW and back, a...

Frontier To Anounce New Routes

Rumur has it Frontier will be announcing new routes very soon.

Rumor is resuming the IND-CUN and STL-CUN service

Also noticed on the F9 route map, on their website, it is now reflecting the code share routes with Midwest out of MKE
