ExpressJet Airlines suspends branded commercial operations HOUSTON, July 8 /PRNewswire/

-- ExpressJet Airlines announced today that it will suspend flying under several lines of its at-risk flying operations in September 2008. ExpressJet mutually agreed to terminate its agreements with Delta Air Lines effective September 1, 2008 and will cease its branded (XE) commercial passenger flight operations on September 2, 2008. The 39 aircraft currently used in these operations will be among those returned to the lessor no later than June 2009.



ExpressJet Airlines will continue flying a fleet of 205 aircraft as Continental Express to more than 150 destinations, as well as continue to serve charter customers with a fleet of 30 aircraft through ExpressJet Corporate Aviation.


"On behalf of everyone at ExpressJet Airlines, I would like to express our gratitude to the communities that provided such a warm welcome and were always supportive of our branded service," said Jim Ream, President and Chief Executive Officer. "If we had any other choice, we would not take this difficult action. However, rising fuel prices has made the operation impossible to sustain."


Tickets on ExpressJet Airlines for travel prior to September 2 will not be affected. In fact, ExpressJet will continue selling tickets for any customers desiring travel prior to September 2. Tickets are available for purchase online at http://www.expressjet.com, by calling 888.958.XJET (9538), and through most travelers' preferred providers, including travel agents and online distributors.


Customers holding tickets for a flight after September 1, 2008 should contact ExpressJet Reservations at 888-958-XJET (9538) to request a refund. Effective immediately, ExpressJet will stop selling tickets for travel beyond September 2, 2008. For more information, contact ExpressJet Reservations at 888-958-XJET (9538).

Re: ExpressJet Holdings to close ExpressJet Airlines Sept 2

OMFG.

I actually checked the date, and hoped this was a joke......

Oh guys, I don't even know what to say :(



Edit: The original post was a bit confusing, I read it as XJet was shutting down in entirety. But reading a press release from ExpressJet.com it's just the loss of the DL connection flying and ceasing of the branded operation, but the flying as Continental Express will still continue? Yes, it's late and I need sleep..........
