Anyone fly yet today, 8/13?

I'm flying MKE-BOS tonight and I wonder what the mood is at the airport today... happy I would imagine, but I suppose there is still some uncertainty in people's minds as to what will happen.

Flew BDL-CTL-ATL today on USAir, ran into a pair of guys at the Hilton Garden Inn in ATL with MKE badges, and started chatting, turns out they were pilots for YX. Both were cautiously optimistic about the news, one thought that after the deal is complete there would be a big strategic plan announced that would present an ambitious growth plan, including a large aircraft purchase.

Mrs. GHF was on the 7 AM from DCA-MCI, and then the YX/Skywest barbie jet connection to SAT.

She said nothing unusual, very normal flights. Nothing said at all. They held the Skywest flight for the inbounds from her flight (20 minute schedule connection, DCA flight was 15 late).

Did Mrs. GHF tell you how good or bad the Barbie Jet was?

She's significantly shorter than I, and she said it was "OK, but the seats became uncomfortable to sit in after a while". In other words, a typical CRJ experience for her. She also said it clearly wasn't up to mainline standards service-wise, though they did hold the plane at MCI for connecting passengers.
