What's happening with ExpressJet? Are they no longer going to be a UAX carrier?

Nothing for certain. Even the XJT pilots have no idea. My bet is they shrink considerably and are possibly absorbed into Skywest within the next 3 years or so.

Cape Air has added a third ATR-42 to its fleet in Guam. N45838 is now registered and in full UAX-livery. She will be making her way out to Micronesia soon.

In regard to the ATR42 fleet, it doesn't seem that the links to FlightAware work. FA doesn't pick up the flight. For example, N14834 is shown as last flying in 2014:
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N14834

Flightradar24 does seem to track the flights:
https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/n14834

Is it possible to update the Google website so the links for these planes link to FR24?

N212UA will continue to Guam UA2173 2-Jan instead of direct HKG, kinda strange, weren't those 25XXs has the same range as 23XXs?

Are the 789 deliveries for this year going to have the old sCO J seats? I know there's a schedule for retrofits to the new Polaris seats - and that the existing Dreamliners are far back on that list - but it seems asinine to install seats that are almost certainly going to be ripped out in the next 5 years (I would think, if not sooner). I guess if there's a contract to fulfill, they might as well, but it seems dumb/stupid...even if there is a monetary cost now, I would think getting new hard product on board to match the marketing should trump it.

They will be delivered with the seats that are on the 787-8/9 fleet. Currently no plans to install the polaris seats on those aircraft (some sort of contractual issue).

Wow. That sounds totally suboptimal. The 787's are going to be in the fleet for a long time. I get that the 767 and 747 fleet may not be upgraded, but the 787 needs the new product.

Are they still struggling with sort of things like who placed the order originally?
