Well just hang out in CLT for a full day. Mesa is so bad with CX flights that the ticket people call them (Mesa - Mx Every Single A/C). I know also that we at PDT have CX a bunch of flights. It's like Group is allowing us to work on a small fixed budget. Almost all the Dash 8 300's have Mel'ed APU's. All the 200's are having the NVS system deactivated. (Cost). The Mx Guys took pay cuts, which changes a persons pride in his work. We are short pilots (Fo's and CPs leaving all the time), overworking our FA. They do 14hr days over and over. It's not even fun anymore going to work anymore. Our Moral is so bad its sad. We are still flying 15 year old props that the public hates with no RJ's in the future in Site. We have in 5 years gone from one of the top regional airlines to work for to the bottom. Thank you Group.

a lot of angry pax!
One of them was 5891...Mesa... due to a lack of crew!
This example is one of many problems of having so many different express carriers... each of their dispatches cancelled only one flight, but the route ended up having 3 back to back cancellations. If only one carrier was running the route, they would most likely swap aircraft to ensure back to back cancellations would not occur.
