Question What's the Latest at ASA/Expressjet?

So anyone know of what is to become of the new Expressjet airline now that Delta has a TA? How will this affect this group and what does the future hold for them.

Not sure what "" is for? ExpressJet also has United feed. My guess is if the worst comes, they would simply shift flying over to UA.

We will all get a 20% pay increase 2 extra weeks of vacation, and a guaranteed interview at DAL

I think there are a bunch of wildcards at play now:

1) What will the new JCBA look like? How long before we vote on it, is it voted in?
2) Will that allow us to capture any new flying in the near term?
3) Will Delta's TA be ratified? If so, what are the short and longer term ramifications for the CRJ side of the house?
4) Will other pilot groups try to follow Delta's lead if TA is passed? What effect will that have? Over what period of time?
5) Pilot "shortage"? Will it happen? How fast and how much?

I don't have a real clue as to what change all of these will bring. It could be a wild ride. I'll hang on as long as it makes sense, but only for so long.

Nobody knows but many will act like they have all the answers. Just sit back and watch. Not much any of us can do about what Daddy D had in the plans for us.

Until SLI, this seems to be hurting the Asa side more than the XJT side. No one will know the outcome for sometime to come. However, there will be plenty of 1 year F/O's that try to speculate

Word on the street is there will be a TA by summers end. The SLI will somewhat favor the ASA side. It is also being said that do not be to surprised if Delta comes in and buys some of the pilot group if not all. With Delta's lightning speed contract TA, and what looks like the same with Expressjet, makes one wounder why the rush. let's just say there is something in the works. Can't say much for the other regionals, but it appears that this Delta TA will benefit the new Expressjet, more than any other regional, for the better. Things are definitely looking good as time goes forward.
