So I hear many rumors going around of Skywest Inc. purchasing the CL-705 aircraft from Bombardier and flying them under the DeltaConnection banner. At first they would be configured to only 75 seats until a judge throws out the scope clause at Delta then they would be configure to the full capacity including first class for a whopping total of 90 seats. Anyone hear anything different?

Tonight I spoke to my girlfriend based in SLC (ASA) and she told me that she heard SKYWEST is in the process of buying Airbus A320 aircraft and that the head of VirginUSA was spotted in SLC with the head of SKYWEST. I was in total disbelief but we shall see. You never know with the state of the industry.

DAL has not really begun to break ALPA scope clauses and UAL has already finished on their ALPA contract provisions...both of which preclude SkyWest from flying airbus equip for any carrier while flying for DAL and UAL..exactly the same situation Atlantic Coast was in to become Indepenedence Air.

What about ASA? Do they have the same contract as Skywest or was there anything ever put in their contact beings that DL used to own them?

The clauses are not in the contracts between DL and Skywest or ASA, but between DL and DALPA. This means that if Skywest, Atlantic Coast, or any other DL connection carrier starts flying a/c larger than the scope clause allows the code-share contracts must end.

This reads like you were trying to be funny...yes/no?

But theoretically, if you merge all the regional flying onto one of the AOC's and rework the DLC or UAX contract, you have an empty AOC that would be under SkyWest, Inc. and therefore possibly precluded from any scope clause limitations? Think something along the lines of American and American Eagle, Trans States & Go Jet, Republic, Shuttle America & Chautauqua, etc.

And since you say it would preclude SkyWest from operating Airbus equipment... does it preclude Boeing equipment too? I know contracts can be specific but that sounds ludicrous.

Just my  twocents
