Not sure, but there was more than one article.... It is a little late in the year to be an April Fools Joke...

The Joke around here is that the Pilots will be call "Space Cadets"

LOL... Probably... Only time will tell if it helps or hurts them... It is funny the first couple times, but I think in the end it is going to fall back on them.... Just picture all the Delta or United MRJ's with the Name Space Jet... Vs Boeing, Airbus, CRJ, ERJ... ETC... I do not think that is what the end customer really wants to see.... Hopefully they will announce that it was only a publicity stunt, much like IHOP's name change to IHOB!
