When is Mesa taking over Express flying in Florida and the Bahamas and where is Piedmont sending its aircraft to? When was this arranged?
Also, has anybody seen the new interiors on the Air Midwest B1900''s?
Mesa took over flying last Monday (Nov 4th). They currently have either 3 or 4 Dash 8s flying around Florida. They are training flight attendants for the Florida base (MIA). They are training maintenance guys in TPA. They took over the station operation in EYW (Key West) at that time too.
I've been working the Express most of the week and hadnt noticed the interiors of the Beech. What is the new one supposed to look like? I'll have to take a closer look next week at work.

This appears to be another example of outsourcing by Dave. His attempt to gain approval for the 70 seat RJâ€™s at affiliate contract carries is interesting, as this would replace current mainline flying. [/SPAN]
