Den 2.0
 
Everybody “knows someone who knows someone”

Heard the other day straight from a horses mouth (weird a horse could talk) that DEN was offered. Would be used as a launching point for west/southwest flying. RPA turned it down, too far from IND/CMH/PIT maintenance superstations and would be too hard to get the airplanes back in to the mx system.

United went to xjet next and apparently DEN is right around the corner for them.

At least the DEN 2.0 rumor was fun while it lasted.

Republic scared of anything west of the Mississippi? Color me shocked.

The real story is that UA only committed to one year of flying, and we said TBNT.

why would they only commit to a year? It’s not like DEN is some small outstation for UAL.

Because it's United. That is the game they play. Leveraging one regional off another. Why pay one regional for 3 years of flying when you can pay less three times by playing one bid off another. Stability be damned.

Change the title to 4.0 and include stock options at Frontier, then I might believe it.

There will be no Denver base as of now. The rumor is just that, a [email protected] rumor, get over it. Like the other post said, UA is asking for a 1 year contract at time, that’s it! YX knows opening a base there for a year is not business friendly so it will not happen, suck it up buttercup, stop starting stupid threads because you’re miserable in ORD. Here’s a tip, take a lateral move and venture on all star!

This is exactly what they told us at 5/18 indoc.

Confused
 
Doesn’t UAL own a portion of RAH? How does RAH get to decide which flying they want to accept and turn down from UAL?
