Two regional affiliates of Northwest Airlines, Mesaba Aviation and Pinnacle Airlines, have announced that Northwest has decided to remove some 50 regional jets from service. The removals will include the entire 35-aircraft fleet of Mesaba's Avro RJs.

In a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing, Mesaba parent company MAIR Holdings announced that Northwest's winter schedule sees nine Avro RJs removed from service -- in violation of the company's contract with the bankrupt major. Northwest also has served notice to terminate leases on the entire 35-aircraft Avro fleet effective Dec. 20. Later this year, Mesaba will begin operating the smaller Bombardier CRJ regional jet.

Meanwhile, Pinnacle Airlines says it has received a request from Northwest to remove 15 of its 139 Bombardier CRJs from service. The airline says it expects to operate 11 percent fewer block hours accordingly and will seek to lower staff levels through attrition and voluntary staff leave, but possibly also layoffs.
