Have any of you guys heard some rumors that AA might want to fly Eagle's CRJ700s in the near future?

Very highly unlikely because of one word: Unions. Both the seperate unions would flip over such an idea... Just my thoughts on what I know as of now.

If I remember right, Eagle cant go over 20 CRJ 70 seaters. Is this correct?

Good point AA7771stClass. But when Eagle's LAW MTX facility closed and moved to XNA about a month ago, some people where saying that they've heard about AA and the CRJs from their own bosses.

It's a rolling percentage of RJ vs. Mainline seats.

AA for a while now has been toying with the idea of selling Eagle and making it an independent company, using it as a feeder like American Connection. The benefits of doing so, would allow Eagle to expand, and the cost of crews, operations, etc. would not fall on AA (or AMR).



We are the people of American Airlines. And we know why you fly.

When AMR was first looking at the CRJ, the AA pilot's union, APA, propsed to the company they be flown by mainline crews. AA pilots would rather fly the plane, any plane, for that matter. The more aircraft there are, the more jobs there are for the union's pilots. BTW, Eagle's pilots are represented by ALPA. APA is probably still trying to persuade AMR to give them the plane.


The views expressed are mine alone and do not necessarily reflect my employer’s views.

One of the problems with AA pilots flying RJs is that an RJ Captain may earn less that a 777 international F/O. Pay scales are based on aircraft weight, and putting RJs into the mix throws the scales off.

APA has also proposed that all pilots who fly for AMR be represented by APA on one master pay scale. The theory is that there would no longer be fighting over whether a route would be mainline or Eagle.

Although ALPA probably wouldn't object, managment didn't go for it. If you were to take the Eagle scale up to mainline jets, Eagle pilots would make a lot less than AA pilots. So, management doesn't want pilots flying RJs on AA's pay scale.
