Bombardier.com writes that GECAS has converted 4 "conditional orders" into firm and ordered one more for a total of 5 x CRJ701. They will go to GoJets which will use them on their UAX network with 2-class 66-seat ops. Excellent news, thumbs up for all parties involved  Smile

So, despite the negative comments about GoJets here on A.net in recent months, the airline is growing its fleet, so they must be doing something right...?

They are definitely doing something right: GoJet (Trans States) provides United a very low-cost regional product. Employees may not like them, passengers may not like them, but United´s bottom line loves GoJet.

btw.
How are GoJets costs and reliability?
I haven't seen any statistics, or much info about them (probably because they were formed to basically hurt TSA's unions)

Gojet was initiated to handle >50 seats jets since AA's labor scope clauses wouldn't allow any American Connection carrier to fly anything larger than a 50 seat A/C. Since TSA is a private-owned non-public company it's very difficult to find out operational info on them. We have to rely on indirect evidences and the strongest one I could find is this actual news. UA is about to grant them more fixed-fee business as opposed to skywest's. Therefore the balance between low-costs and operational efficiency is more favorable to Gojet.

Here is a quote from Airliner World special: Regional Airliners, 2003, Key Publishing Ltd, UK, page 36: "The line-up of models was settled as the 68-seat CRJ700, 70-seat CRJ701 and 72-78-seat CRJ702, although in pratice these designations do not seem to be used, all versions simply being referred to as the CRJ700 since the airframe is common to all."

I guess it becomes more natural to use the CRJ701 as the CRJ705 is also in the media from time to time, signalling that the -701 is a smaller aircraft...?

The latest -701LR version has increased weights and use derated CRJ900 engines, so some development has occurred since the launch in 1997.
