KCaviator, I give them 5 years and they will be gone due to not enough pilots. The connection world is changing as we speak. If they're still here in 5 years and I'm still here in 5 years the beers are on me.

SkyWest has OBVIOUSLY done an outstanding job of insulating their own future. To think they wonít survive is definitely a case of letting your feelings toward them cloud your rational mind.

Feelings don't come into play at all. It's simple math. Look at how many pilots the top seven airlines need due to retirements. Look at how many regional pilots there are.

Thereís a TON of military and corporate pilots. And there will be new pilots attracted to the profession now that pay isnít as bad. You can believe what you choose to believe.

Yeah, most regionals have stopped recruiting in Australia because the US flight schools are finally spooled up enough to supply the regionals. Our classes remain pretty full.

So your saying the largest and third largest regional airlines, wholly owned or not, are going to fail while all the smaller ones survive?

Look, if we learned anything here, it's that the future is impossible to predict. Most all of the prognosticators on here (including myself) were proven exceptionally wrong.
