There's also a CP6085.

You guys planning a drag race or something?

I canít remember the number, but I know there is at least one flight that regularly shows an MQ number but also shows an ASH number and is definitely flown by Mesa because I often commute on it. After it is actually flown, it only shows the Mesa flight. If you can find one that Envoy has actually flown, you might have something. All our regular flights are 3XXX or 4XXX. But when we pick up a flight that is dropped by someone else it should be a 93XX number.

Great info, I didnít realize the 93xx was that. Thanks.

It amazes me the hardon that people have for taking the LAX flying back. Itís not a good thing for us as a group. Why do we want to do more work for bottom rate wages?

It may or may not be good for Envoy pilots as a group, but there are a number of people here, both pilots and FAs, who it would be better for them, as individuals.

And then there are the people who would benefit, as individuals, by all the people above them that go to another base as well.

Just pointing this out. I donít want it to happen. It will be such a good recruiting tool for Envoy that they will be able to continue to fill classes with those extra bodies under our same miserable contract.

I've flown with 2 FO's who came here because they heard we were opening a LAX base. Even after explaining to them how airline rumors work they both still remained hopeful and positive about LAX reopening.

I guess they'll just have to settle for an 8 year flow and eventually getting LAX 737/320.

Well, I guess it depends on how you think it would affect recruiting. LAX base would probably bring the boys to the yard, even more so than today where hundreds of cadets are lining up every month to make worst-in-the-industry money. But if it didnít? Flying Envoy canít staff gives Envoy an incentive to up the ante. Theyíd probably just increase the bonus a little though.
