Big Sky To Cover Boston

Big Sky Airlines will fly eight 19-seat Beech 1900Ds from Boston starting early in the year’s second quarter under a new code-share contract the Billings, Mont.-based regional signed with Delta Air Lines in late December. Delta said it would reveal the identity of Big Sky’s new destinations “later this winter.” A subsidiary of Mesaba Airlines parent MAIR Holdings, Big Sky flies its current fleet of Beech 1900s under code-share deals with Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, Northwest Airlines and US Airways. MAIR recently filed suit against the Air Line Pilots Association in an effort to reverse a three-year-old agreement with Mesaba pilots that bars Big Sky from flying airplanes that carry more than 19 seats. The company now claims the deal, entered as part of a new labor contract signed in January 2004, violated federal antitrust laws.
