So sorry ladies and gentlemen. I only worked there for about 2 1/2 years, but the employees are some of the best I’ve been around. Keep your heads up, you should be proud of the work you’ve done over the years for Continental and United, and every other iteration of flying ExpressJet has done.

Uh no, fake news. Seriously a bunch of people lost their jobs yesterday and you just want to use it to push your political agenda?

Great crews and team members at Xjt/ASA. It was horribly mismanaged and had inept union leadership. Yesterdayís announcement impacts many pilots, mechanics, flight attendants, and their families. While it is tragic, I canít say it is a surprise that their costs were not competitive. Neither XJT or commutair are paid high enough.

Yes, and not really completely true either.
Even Flight Instructor gigs have dried up.

ASA guy Sep 2000 to January 2008. What a great time. Brasilia then CRJ 200. Worked last two years in LCA department. Wonderful people all around. Some famous for their flying skills, some famous for their antics and some just famous because they shared names with famous people. Great CP Secretaries that kept us straight and new what paperwork to hand us before we even opened our mouths. That's how I upgraded. I walked in with a long face and Mary (I think that was her name) handed me the upgrade bid form.

Sorry to see the tent folded up. Go ACEY!

Great people, great instructors, great pilots. The three pilots that stand out in my mind are the Norwegian Hammer (canít remember his name), Tom T (training dept), and Capt Woody. They really helped me become a decent 121 pilot through tough standards and great mentorship.

Iím kind of an airline geek. ASA is one of the great originals and Iím very proud to have been an Acey pilot. A sad day in aviation. Good luck to everyone at XJT.
