Unfortunately for the foreseeable future, it's going to take 15+ years seniority to participate in the 824. Yes, we do have THAT many guys hired from 1997-1999 still on property.

Eagle Flight

Just because we have some crap about 'Operated By' painted on the side of the airplane doesn't mean anything has to change with ATC.

I am so sick of this airline propaganda targeting the naive flying public into thinking a new name=better airline. What a crock...

Most of the flying public are not even aware of names such as 'Republic,' or, 'Chautauqua,' or, 'Mesa,' or, 'Endeavor.' As far as they're concerned, it's still well paid pilots from American, Delta, or United at the controls of their flight.

The name change is because Wisconsin, PSA, Piedmont, Expressjet, Skywest have (or will have) American Eagle painted on their planes when they do AA flying. To smear the brand 'American Eagle' across all these other carriers, mgmt felt they had to change the name of our airline to something else, hence Envoy.

Even though we'll have 'Operated by Envoy Airlines' painted in hard-to-read letters on the nose of the aircraft, we'll always be the real American Eagle as far as I'm concerned.

Let me get in my time machine and fast forward 20 years, maybe then I'll be at AA through this wonderful flow through.

Very true. My girlfriend and I met someone last week at a party that flies for Chautauqua, and trying to explain who that is and the whole regional feed thing got me the "deer in headlights" look.

Look up 'envoy' in a dictionary and thesaurus. It means a conclusion. Or concluding. Supports AAL's decision of shutting them down.
