87redcat Posted October 28, 2021 Report Share Posted October 28, 2021 Fast forward 5 years. Pandemic hits. Im declared an "essential worker" as an aircraft mechanic. Then the industry tanks. I worked for a regional airline, Expressjet. We flew for most of the majors. At our pear ee flew about 1200-1400 flights a day with our 230+ fleet of aircraft. During the pandemic, on a good day, we might have flown 60 flights. As a result, United, our exclusive major, decided to choose one of 2 regional airlines to fly for them. Also to do with depleted flights. They chose Commute Air over us, and thus we shut our doors after 25+ years of flying. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
