I'm over at Skywest and starting in September we have been flying the 175 in and out of IAH. Did Mesa dump a bunch of IAH routes? is it just growing? Or just the normal shuffle of regional awards? Pretty much go there every trip I get now.

Their 175 is actually over staffed. They have been shifting crews out of IAH to ORD as their footprint grows in ORD.

Mainline shifts flying between regionals and fleet type monthly for demand

Thatís true. The 145ís are understaffed/parked. Their focus is staffing the 145 and brining more back from the desert

Which are now staffed. Their going from 67, to 75 145s for the month of February. And theyíll even have up to 100 by the end of the year. XJT will grow aggressively in IAH this year on the 145. Most 175 flying at XJT was shifted to ORD
