Continental Express with United Express

Continental Express with United Express

The new United Airlines can’t identify its 70-seat regional jets as Continental Airlines flights, an arbitrator has ruled.
The arbitrator agreed with Continental’s pilots, who argued that their labor contract requires them — not regional pilots — to fly planes of that size.
The new airline is free to fly 70-seat jets from Continental hubs in Cleveland, Newark and Houston. But the flights must be marketed as United Express flights.

I have always looked to the sky at the wonderful aluminum tubes darting through the sky. My love for aviation has taken me to many airports and air shows and I hope to be able to experience many more in the years to come and to share my experience along the way.

    Is this good or bad for CLE? Could be good.
