nexon78 said "Remember when SkyWest acquired ASA? Did the deal benefit shareholders? more flying contracts without benefits to shareholders."
both deals will be good for skyw shareholders in the long run. i hope you aren't short skyw like you mentioned earlier. just like for the majors, consolidation will be good for the regional industry. too many regionals fighting for every bit of flying. they need to gain scale and cut costs and that is what skyw is trying to do.
i'd still like to see skyw buy the mesa 90 seat business out of mesa's ch 11.
