    Well 101 at the end of the year right? So, assuming your logic is correct..8 months....29 a/c....3 or 4 a month. I get it Im just curious if red actually showed any scheduled to come off line in the near future.

    Which is what our attrition is averaging. It's like they had a plan :/

    I think we're holding at 130 for the moment.

    No updates from me as it's been a month since any went offline. I haven't seen a schedule but heard they'll pick back up some in July.

    Is there a smile or a frown at the end of that?

    Just wondering why so secretive? Especially if it's good news, I'm sure expressjet folks would love to hear. Surejet sure doesn't play by the rules so I don't understand the hush hush. I'm hoping they get bought out by The big U so I can get all of my seniority back!

    Hey everyone, just wanted to give you all a quick update. I will no longer be able to update you as I have went over to the dark side (C5) in ALB. I'm from the Northeast originally, worked in ABE and BTV before moving to the engineering dept in IAH 13 years ago. I'm looking forward to getting back up north but going to miss the friends here that made this company what it was years ago.

    Take care,

    The end is near now. Good luck Terry. I only had one interaction with you and it was a pleasant one. Cheers!

    Thanks Terry. I feel that through this blog you are nearly an old friend. I guess it's just as well since I think we are done parking planes (hey, I can hope. Right?). Thank you for keeping us all up to date as we decreased to nearly half our peak size, and for all that you've done for us on the maintenance side. I guess it figures this would happen now that I've passed the hogan... the end really is truly near.

    Funny how that works. Years ago I used to get on here to see what was going on with the "other" side (you all always seemed to have good rumors), but then I realized I could actually contribute from a maintenance standpoint. You sort of get to know people by their usernames and personalities. Good to hear you passed the Hogan, good luck!
