Hulas is definitely has the lowest maintenance cost. Simply by not doing proper maintenance helps keep his costs waaaaaaay down. His a/c are held together by Deferred Maintenance Item stickers.

You sound just like my friend that works at GoJet. He says the same kind of stuff.

Earlier in the week we discussed how TSA flew a handfu of ERJ for AMR and these airplanes where a maintenance nightmare and it took a considerable amount of money and time to brig these airplanes to AMR standards. We can say a lot about AMR but in a year and a half when it comes to maintenance and training we don't cut corners like you guys state your carrier does, yes there is better ways of doing things but it's alarming to hear what folks say about TSA, MESA, RAH, Silver, Colgan, GoJet and some of the other smaller regionals. It mentioned... Things that you don't hear about Expressjet, SKW, Airwisky and Eagle...

Dude, you consider people that work @ gojet your friends? If I had a friend that decided to go there and further erode at what's left of this profession so he or she can get their "quick upgrade" and move on...ugh, I just don't understand people anymore, they have zero respect for themselves and even less for others. It truly is as they say a "race to the bottom"

this is a joke right, your talking night and day between trans states mx and Eagle. Its not being better than anyone, its having a bubble gum and sticker repaired plane, to planes that are barely even are MELd.

The point was they had these planes for a period of time and they are still by far the worst in our fleet, and went out of service for 6 months to be repaired for a 2 year contract. I doubt AMR will do much business with TSA again.

You missed the whole point, it's not about your airplane being being more broken than mine, it's about the disparity we have in the regional bussiness with regards to training and maintenance.

I honestly can't believe Eagle couldn't sue Hulas for returning a/c in such poor condition. But, poor, minimum,or no maintenance is the Hulas way.

I don't know why my friend chose to work at GoJet, maybe because he was turned down by SkyWest and didn't have any other decent offers?

My friend isn't from the US and I don't think he knows a lot about the history regarding the formation of GoJet and he probably doesn't care either way.

You're an a-hole if you honestly think I should end a friendship with someone solely because they work at GoJet. I'm not a fan of GoJet but c'mon bro, grow up.
