The twisted thing about Mesa is that the CEO JO is acting like he 'didn't know' this was all going on.

Of course he knew what was going on, he was the leader/criminal of the illegal actions they underwent to start flying into Hawaii. They just chose the CFO as the person to throw under the bus to TRY to save the company. All of the news releases try to reflect that management didn't know that this ONE guy did everything illegal. IT WAS THE ENTIRE MANAGEMENT TEAM!


The future of Mesa is dark aka seniority there means less and less every day!

That's a good start, but the holy grail is of course the removal of JO....

Read closely I dont think he is being fired....just reassigned quote "We look forward".... I'm sure he's getting a big payoff!
