As many know today US Airways has ordered 170 RJ's between Embraer and Bombardier. If most of these RJ's are going to be on alot of main routes. Does that mean that A couple of the A320 Series planes will be heading to the desert? Or are they going to add more routes to there system?

I think they are going to add additional routes with the mainline aircraft. Look for additional frequencies to Central America and the Caribbean. Already in June they are flying ERJ's from PIT to BOS.

Doesn't US still operate a lot of 737s. If so then the RJ's wil probably replace the 737's, as well as open new routes.


Attamottamotta!

Also these RJ's will be replacing the props....... Time to say bye to the Dash 8's and other props.  Sad

There will be a use for the prop planes for the foreseeable future. Regional jets cannot feasibly/economically replace smaller prop planes into bottom tier markets, like the EAS subsidy routes. DHC-8 days may be numbered though.

They're retiring the Dash 8s and Dorniers soon?? That sucks if they are. The Dorniers are fairly new and quiet. Actually almost all their props are. What about shorter routes, like CLE-PIT, and CAK-PIT?

It is my understanding that because of th current agreement with ALPA, the mainline cannot get smaller than the present 279 shells.

You won't see any props flown by US Airways' WO carriers once this is all said and done. However, we still have Shuttle, Colgan, etc. that will likely continue to fly props into the EAS markets.

Cody - You are correct mainline cannot go below 279 per the ALPA contract. What we will see with the fleet are the larger aircraft shifted to new markets in the Caribean and South America and more transcon flights.

The Dornier 328s will be the first to go. They are the odd ball in the WO fleet and PSA will be the first to fly the jets (CRJ-200s).
