Right now AMR is setting up Eagle with a contract where they don't have to whipsaw, the contract is going to give them favorable cost compared to SKW Holdings, RAH and other larger regionals, while keeping it in house, we don't have a strike vote as well. So who knows what is going to happen they could shrink us to oblivion or they could do other things but just because your management says they want a contract doesn't mean you will get it. Pinnacle and Eagle are going to get concessionary contracts, RAH has a bad contract, you can't compete with GoJet cost structure, in other words EXJ is one of the most expensive regionals out there. What do you think your management is going to try to do about this on your new contract to be able to attract new flying?
I can only hope that because of the size of XJT they can benefit for the economies of scale when it comes to lowering cost. GoJet, the scum they are, are only so big. They can't tackle a massive RFP like XJT can and keep a quality operation going. Then again I just hope the new XJT contract actually happens within the next ten years, or else this is all one big moot point.
