Selected merge of data to Mesa Air Group[edit]

After discussions on another talk page, I created a Mesa Air Group page. Mesa Air Group owns Mesa Airlines as a subsidarym just like Air Midwest. This page is a mix of the airline information and the Air Group information. I plan on moving some of the Air Group data to the Mesa Air Group page leaving the airline specific data here.

The line "In 1997 and 1998, financial problems ended Mesa Airlines' partnership..." is confusing to me. How can a partnership end in two separate years? This could use fixing/explaining/clarification. Maybe it's correct and there's a simple (or even complex) explanation, I wouldn't know, that's why I came here for information and find myself leaving in search of a legitimate source. --69.235.250.110 07:17, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

suggests that Mesa is on the verge of bankruptcy in the wake of Delta taking back its code share. Some updating may be in order! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.195.113.153 (talk) 10:44, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Dash-8[edit]

Mesa was the launch customer for the Dash-8-200 and as such they arrived without the ANR that makes it a Dash-8-Q200. Removed 'Q200' and replaced with just '200' which is also how it appears on all AFMs for these aircraft. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.190.138.32 (talk) 19:01, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Incidents[edit]

I cleaned up the Dash-8 prop strike incident and added the landing gear incident which were then both removed for "not meeting notability guidelines". What are the guidelines? They seemed pretty notable to me, and well in line with what's currently on other air carrier pages. Both incidents resulted in subtantial damage to the airframes, and I cited the relevant NTSB reports. Why is JetBlue landing with a mis-aligned nose gear more notable than Mesa landing without one gear extended? Berck (talk) 16:05, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

You need to read the essay that addresses this and has support. Vegaswikian (talk) 17:58, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

Article currently needs citations and there are plenty of "citation needed" throughout the article. User:Aneah 13:50, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
