From another ex-trans stater: I'm really sorry guys and girls. I'm sure those that are interested will be well received in the ACMI conga line that I've hopped into. Best of luck and to the very limited extent I can ever put in a good word, I certainly will.

Jetlink was my first 121. The 145, as much as I never fit in it, will always have a spot in my memory. Never got to fly the “branded” planes but loved the Continental Express routes I was able to fly.

Sorry for the bad news. This year just keeps getting worse.

Long story short I flew for ExpressJet G74** 2006 hire went out on medical leave as a CA for a long time and got cut per the CBA. Went to C5 as a DEC and was super disappointed with their training department, it was scary bad. Ended up leaving after 7 months because of the poor support and horrible dispatchers. It’s truly sad to see an airline in which I had pride to fly for be chosen by bean counters to die. ExpressJet was truly a class act! Loved flying the Branded birds, may all of you find greener pastures.

ASA was a first class operation with the best training in the 121 world. I’m proud to have been a part of it and am glad to say it has helped shaped me into the aviator I am today.

Ugh. Awful news. I have ridden Acey jumpseats many times, and had many of you ride with us, and without exception you folks were top-notch pilots and human beings. Here's hoping you all find your way to a soft landing. 2020 can go **** itself.

I credit an ExpressJet Captain I met at a bar in New Orleans while on a trip at my previous company as the reason I chose to fly Part 121. He was a lifer but he had “17 days off a month and making 6 figures”. At that time for what I was doing that sounded like hot s5it to me. Sign me up.

I hope for nothing but the best for all of you. I know there are a lot of platitudes being thrown around. But this really is awful to see. You guys were recognized for being a top notch airline and the pilots you’ve produced for the industry are some of the best.

Very sorry to hear the news. As a TSA refugee I remember y’all trying to scoop up our pilot group in a time of need and ever pilot I talked to was very eager at wanting to help. Iv enjoyed many jump seats riding on y’alls airplane and appreciated the hospitality.
