Pinnacle to fly for CO from EWR

http://www.app.com/apps/pbcs.dll/art.../70205013/1003

The flights by Pinnacle's Colgan Air Inc. will begin in early 2008, Houston-based Continental said today in a statement. Continental and Memphis, Tenn.-based Pinnacle reached a 10- year contract for flying the 74-seat Bombardier Inc. Q400s.

Interesting. I wonder if this is in response to NWA's Compass.

Another tidbit:
With the agreement, Pinnacle "has accomplished the important goal of diversifying its customer base away from Northwest Airlines, and these new planes should bolster revenue growth somewhat,'' James Corridore, a Standard & Poor's analyst in New York, said in a report.
