Was it a smart move to piss off United Airlines by purchasing Frontier? Have to past teach you nothing. Look at what happened to ACA and Air Pisconsin.
Lately, UAL have replaced some of Trans States flights with Expressjet from ORD and IAD due to pilot inevidiable possibility on strike and Shittytaco bad rape.
Skywest and Gojet have been ordering airplane and are placed in UALs fleet with CRJ700ER NG which will say bye bye to Shitty America.
THE END IS NEAR FOR REPUBLIC AIRWAYS.

From what is being reported by the media (including posts on this site), United probably won't be around long enough "to do anything about it". Secondly, United wanted Air Wisconsin to sign a contract that guaranteed a negative income after expenses. What kind of a deal was that? For the last 4 or 5 years they seem to have been successfully flying for US Air as an express carrier. Would they have lasted for 4 or 5 years with United? Air Wisconsin was no angel, flying delapitated old junk like the BAe 146, or having multiple aircraft types, which were also junk or "Barbie Jets" as we used to call them, but United definitely was trying to put the screws to them, like every company associated with United. United is a 3 legged horse ... put it out of it's misery for once and for all!!!!

Without a merge with America West, Usless air would of been gone last year. Air Pisconsin would of suck up the investments in Usless Air.
UA should drop Shitty America from its flight in Denver and if it continues to become aggressive with Frontier, then bye bye Shitty America as well as ShittyTaco and replace them with Skywest, Expressjet, Gojet, Colgan and TSA.
There is no doubt that UA favor dropping Shitty America for awhile now. Crust bucket have not been expanding its fleet of EMB170 fleet and UA have been in favor of CRJ700LR NG for its fleet. The CRJ700 can use airstair or jetbridge, consumes less fuel and have equal size overhead bins and flies fast and more economy plus seating increasing profit margin for UA.

The only thing bad about Republic Airlines is their Human Resources Department. Absolutely disgusting, incompetent, lying jerks work there.
Thr rest of the airline seems to doing fine.
