I think it is time to ask if R.A.H.

Republic Airways Holdings / Wexford Capital

are out of their element with the new landscape of air carriers which is forming? I see a new full frontal assault by both Southwest and United Continental Holdings on two of its hubs now.

But then again... R.A.H. does already feed for United. Hmmm

Trouble.

Here comes the getto airline into Atlanta and Washigton DC. Getto cities of america.

The getto airline will offer the negros of Atlanta and Washington special $39.00 dollars for those who use their welfare checks.

All those negros will be able to travel for negro fares. But be carful, negros will be competing against all those illegal aliens for those cheap fares.

All you rich white people...we United, American, Dlta) have plenty of white seats available for those who have real bank credit cards, no debit cards, no welfare checks.
