View Full Version : Airlines Identity
03-27-2003, 08:54 AM
I frequently use the real-life airlines schedules available on flightarrivals.com to set up flights and insert AI aircraft for a little more realism. I've come across two airlines that I see often in these departure schedules from various airports. One is OPT and the other is Mesa Airlines. Are these perhaps charter airlines or subsidiaries of major carriers? Just curious. Seems OPT has flights out of Florida and Mesa appears mainly in the mid-west. Thanks,

I am not sure who OPT is, however Mesa airlines is a regional carrier that contracts themselves with several major carriers. 1 is America West, and if I am not mistaken, they also contract with US Airways. I believe there is one more as well, but I hope that answers half your question.

i believe that OPT is Chalk's Airlines. i think they operate Grumman Mallards from Ft Lauderdale and Miami Seaplane to points in the Bahamas. here's a link to their site...
