Hi Chris,

When reading your biography you said you chose ExpressJet over Piedmont for various reasons. What were those reasons?



At the time, Piedmont only flew turbo prop airplanes and was a shrinking airline, connected to a major (US Airways) that was not doing well. ExpressJet flew jets and was connected to Continental, which was doing quite well. Much of that has changed since I made my decision and neither of the two major airlines that I mentioned even exist anymore.
