The Go-Jet birds won't be any better.

Further recalls and hiring potentially restarting sooner than expected, perhaps?

I love hearing little bits of positivity like this. Good work all.

Mesa held those things together with gorilla glue and duct tape.

For whiskey’s sake I hope they came from anywhere other than Mesa.... Mesa’s MX program is a nightmare and I’d hate to see that nightmare get out on whiskey while y’all try to get into another market.

Actually Mx on the 700 is quite good. Those guys in IAD know their stuff.

What are you talking about. Mesa has been a winner of the coveted FAA Diamond Award for Maintenance Excellence in the past. JO’s acceptance speech was humbling and brought a tear to many people’s eyes

What was it, 130 that got furloughed? So approximately 103 remaining?
Did TG Director of Pilot Recruitment leave along with EG? (She was probably one of the best recruiters out there as a former CA.) Both are cool folks--hate to see them go if that is the case.
