first comments[edit]

this stub is already covered in much more detail under Continental Express.... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nelgallan (talkcontribs) 11:59, 29 July 2005 (UTC-8)

So do you want me to just redirect expressJet to Continental Express? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bkissin (talkcontribs) 05:01, 30 July 2005 (UTC-8)

merging[edit]

  • code ==

same Icao code —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mion (talkcontribs) 20:00, 11 February 2006 (UTC-8)

  • what ? ==

expressJet is the holding, Continental Express is the public name. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mion (talkcontribs) 20:17, 11 February 2006 (UTC-8)

  • Suggest ==

dump ExpressJet —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mion (talkcontribs) 20:18, 11 February 2006 (UTC-8)

  • Suggest ==

I think that for now They should be merged under the name Continental express. and in the topic say a large amount of flights are operated by expressjet (or something like that) and in the highly unlikely event that expressjet leaves continental, then they will be un-merged. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.249.245.130 (talkcontribs) 19:25, 5 April 2006 (UTC-8)

  • Suggest ==

Since ExpressJet is currently in the process of evaluatng whether or not to return 69 of its aircraft to Continental, it is possible that the airline could end up operating a substantial part of its service independant from Continental. The decision has to be made by September, so any decision on combining this article with Continental should at least be deferred until after ExpressJet announces whether or not they will retain the aircraft and pay increased lease costs toContinental. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.189.218.18 (talkcontribs) 07:39, 19 April 2006 (UTC-8)

  • ExpressJet ==

I suggest consolidating under ExpressJet. The company is ExpressJet (XJT) and only does business as Continental Express. Other companies that provide feed to Continental are collected under the Continental Connection label. ExpressJet Holdings is the parent of ExpressJet Airlines and owns a few other small businesses. Like the previous comment mentions, XJT will soon be operating 69 airplanes in other business ventures. ExpressJet seems the best label for the company. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jrcampbe (talkcontribs) 12:04, 9 May 2006 (UTC-8)

  • Suggest ==

Keep ExpressJet and COEX separate. At some point two companies will be flying as COEX. ExpressJet is its own entity. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.177.236.116 (talkcontribs) 20:52, 10 May 2006 (UTC-8)

CO's recent announcement that chautauqua will be operating 44 ERJs as continental express, not continental connection, means the pages should be kept seperate. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.25.30.135 (talkcontribs) 12:45, 26 July 2006 (UTC-8)

Hubs[edit]

Who keeps changing SAT, AUS, and SAN around from hubs to focus cities and vice versa? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.249.65.188 (talkcontribs) 11:46, 9 May 2007

-Some high school kid is trying to say that SAT isn't a hub. Very obvious he doesn't work for the airline. Just consider it a hub if it is considered a base and a lot of it's employees live and work from there, which is the case with SAT. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.9.36.48 (talk) 00:40, August 23, 2007 (UTC)

AUS is not a hub[edit]

Whoever keeps changing that is mistaken.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.203.188.161 (talkcontribs) 14:36, 18 May 2007

Kate Penland Incident[edit]

It's come to my attention that Sox23 (talk) removed the notation I made in regards to this incident. I have restored it, and altered it to fall under the heading "Customer Service Incidents". I agree that this is a page about ExpressJet, and not Ms. Penland - hence the alteration. However, incidents that generate notice from news agencies like the AP, CNN, and ABC should be noted. See JetBlue's section about its gaffes on its Wikipedia page for an example.

Feel free to discuss, but I believe that if it's citeable and written in a NPOV, it's notable here. 70.159.43.66 16:07, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Since the incident in question happened on a Continental Express flight, I am moving the incident in question to the Continental Express page. I was unaware there were separate pages for both entities. 70.159.43.66 16:32, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Kate Penland incident? That's rich. The incident was an ExpressJet incident in that an employee of that company insulted and mistreated a young mother and her baby and an ExpressJet pilot had the mother and baby removed from the plane. This outrage is now getting worldwide attention and if Xjt plans to circle the wagons and deny it - by expunging mention of it from Wikipedia for instance - it's only going to get worse for the company's PR. Btw, Wikipedia was never intended to be another marketing tool for corporations. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.220.15.66 (talkcontribs) 15:05, 13 July 2007
It hasn't been removed...just moved to the Continental Express page since it happened on a CoEx flight. Sox23 15:06, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
It's disappeared from there, too, now... Swanny18 (talk) 13:27, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Readability/Flow[edit]

This article is factual. It is very poorly organized and does not flow well. I think a complete rewrite keeping the factual basics intact is in order. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.18.255.105 (talk) 03:40, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

ExpressJet AirlinesExpressJet – The official website and branding of the airline is called simply "ExpressJet". Snoozlepet (talk) 21:14, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Move / Support - Other airline articles are like this, for example the Qantas article isn't called Qantas Airways Limited. Virgin Australia isn't called Virgin Australia Airlines. It will also all into the criteria of WP:COMMONNAME --JetBlast (talk) 21:20, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Move / Support - While I tend to appreciate more formality in corporate names, I agree that in instances where branding is sufficiently strong, a common name should be acceptable, and the full legal name can be indicated in the opening sentence.Cdtew (talk) 05:38, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
