I Noticed With the HP/US Merger And Air Wisconsin coming online as an Express carrier it looks like they will have an Issue with over capacity with High Casm 50 to 70 seat RJ's!! Do they really need that many RJ's? I would think Some Dash 8-300 and 400 or some ATR's would be a good fit to supplement RJs on the many short Haul East Coast routes. Will they park some of the 50 seaters or does there New Route Network support the Number of RJs?
Well any info on this subject would be appreciated or just an opinion.

Some of the other USX RJ providers are being pulled down. Notably, Mesa won't be doing any USX East 50-seat flying anymore... but their 50-seaters in the West will remain - and the 86-seat CR9s will potentially expand.
I think Trans States and Chautauqua are also being phased down to some extent. PSA is getting 70-seaters...
I guess you could say that UA and US are swapping SJPs.

The CR9s are OK as long as you are on an empty flight or in a aisle seat. I was on a 2.5 hour SAT-PHX flight against on window on a full flight, with a big burly dude sitting next to me.....it was miserable. The E170/E190 are far superior in terms of comfort.
