Yep, those banks in DEN suck when EVERYBODY is trying to push at once. You get paid by the minute, why b1tch about it?

Agree completely. But before this gets out of hand, remember who is was that voted that away in the first place. But it's cool, then you can 6 legs a day to GJT, DRO, MTJ, RAP, COS, ASE, HDN, EGE in a 737, airbus, etc.
And before it was "Acey" clogging up the freq in DEN, it was "Air Wisconsin", "Air Shuttle", "SkyWest", "Brickyard/Mercury", Lindberg", "Waterski", etc etc etc etc.
Fear not fellas, some of the Aceys will be on the way out as the Q400 comes in to do flying, operated by Republic. And some of those routes SHOULD be flown by mainline equipment with mainline pilots.
It's NOTHING but the regional shuffle game that Tilton started during the BK and Smugsack is continuing.
