The forum has spoken. They think Virgin America (NOTE MQ and AA are both major airlines) will be here longer than

Global Aviation Holdings - North American Airlines


Republic Airways Holdings Shuttle America Airlines

NOTE MQ and AA are both major airlines

Virgin America - scheduled service carrier
North American - charter carrier
Shuttle America - large aircraft capacity feeder for mainline, legacy, traditional network carriers

Virgin is pretty much done now, with US / AA, as is done much of any real sort of airfare competition in major markets.

American Eagle Airlines -> renamed to Envoy

North American Airlines -> assets sold to Omni

Virgin America -> getting pounded by Compass Airlines d/b/a DL Connection on West Coast

Shuttle America -> having trouble keeping pilots

American ->

Virgin America is subject to the market place and deep pockets of Richard Brandon and associates.

Shuttle America is at the whim of Republic Airways Holdings, much like

Envoy is at the whim of American Airlines Group.

None of these scenarios are particularly good scenarios to be in.
