When Independence Air starts service this summer, it will be using all RJ fleet. That means the RJ's will be mainline aircraft and not part of a regional feeder or subsidiary.

Is IndyAir the only airline to fly RJ's mainline? When the buses come online, will the RJ's still be considered mainline?

Are any other airlines flying RJ's mainline?

What do you think, new trend?

(edit) I wrote this because of the "best airport - 5 or less regional carriers" thread. Well, my response was ROA - a likely IndyAir city. Currently, ROA only has regional airline service. But if IndyAir shows up at ROA - it would be mainline but using a/c of the regionals - Does ROA still qualify as only having regional service? Interesting - too me anyway.  Smile

RJ's will be the "mainline" of Independence Air. There will be 27 Airbus aircraft floating around starting in November that will also be mainline. It is definitely new ground and quite honestly considering the cities that Indy Air will primarily market, I think it can work, very well.


We got planes! We got gates! What the hell!

Midway did when they were Midway before they became a USE carrier and then went bankrupt, I believe they had F100's A320's and CRJ's as mainline A/C

I may be wrong, but I think Air Canada used to categorize their CRJs as mainline aircraft.

The Air Canada RJs are still considered mainline. I just heard they will be taking them off mainline in the near future.

Shame on me, RDU is my home airport, should have thought about Midway. Their RJ's were mainline.
