I was thinking this today when i was looking at a show about top ski resorts. Are they flying to Vail and such cities in Colorado? Does UAL still want these airplanes. Don't pull smart remarks about United. I was just asking. I loved working these birds when I worked for ACA in RDU.

Quoting EHHO (Reply 5): Are all UA BAe-146s the ones that fly with ZW? Or do they have other ones too. If they don't, why are they leaving the fleet? Is ZW retiring them, or is ZW breaking its ties with UA?
I don't know where you have been lately, but UA is the one breaking ties with ZW, that was news months ago. The only 146's in the Express fleet are the ones with ZW. The flying will not be renewed in April because of economics. United wanted them to fly a little longer, but ZW recognized that doing so was not economical, especially with all the planes due for heavy check in the summer time. Thus the fleet will be retired in April, and I can't believe anyone on here thinks otherwise.

A couple of months ago i thought i heard UAL say that they were going to introduce a new plane for a 146 replacement in places like ASE etc...I heard rumors on Skywest getting the CL705 with only a 76 pax configuration so it would not be restricted out of ASE. Anyone hear anything else? I am pretty sure that UAL will NOT renew the contract with ZW as they want ZW completely gone!!!

The topic of commercial jets that can fly in and out of Aspen has been discussed on A.NET many times before. The BAe-146 is the only approved commercial jet that can fly there. Due to engine out performance the twins are not yet certified (if ever). United made a huge mistake on dropping Air Wisconsin. Not only for the Aspen service! The people who frequent Aspen don't like props. UA has no answer for that.
