Mesa's Ornstein Flies The Coop


In Business This Week

MESA'S ORNSTEIN FLIES THE COOP

Jonathan Ornstein, the 36-year-old dealmaker who helped build Mesa Airlines into one of the country's most successful regional airlines, is moving on to head Continental Airlines' commuter carrier, Continental Express. After a string of successful acquisitions, Ornstein seemed to lose his touch in recent months: Three deals, including a potential acquisition of Continental Express, unraveled.
