While driving by PHL this afternoon, I could've sworn I saw a US Airways Express ERJ-145 climbing out with the new paint scheme. Was I seeing things or was this from another airline? (UA maybe?)

It was probably a UAX E145, the two liveries look similar from a distance (white top, blue bottom, blue tail).

Maybe it was UAX then. I know the difference between and ERJ-145 and a CRJ and it was definately and ERJ. I didn't realize UAX used ERJs in PHL.

True, but I have yet to see an ERJ with the new scheme on it. Love it on the ZW CRJs though!

I looked at the schedules and there wasn't anything unusual and all of the IAD flts were CRJ's.

Could it have been this Delta Connection flt

On a side note, I saw the UA 744 in new livery from a distance at ORD Friday. It looks awesome, even across the field.

It may have been N281SK, I saw that one at the F gate late this morning. It many have been one of Chautauqua's hybrid/neutral ERJ-145s. Those have a whote fuselage with a blue tail and engines.

it could have been a transtates airlines which is painted in new US airways livery. I took a flight to RIC last week from LGA and this newly painted bird was parked next to the ERJ that I flew on. I did get a good look at it because we didn't use the boarding bridge.

I thought Trans States was in the process of pulling ERJs from US Airways Express service?

They have a few (5?) left operating under an at-risk contract, flying out of PIT, mainly.


USAir A321 service now departing for SFO with fuel stops in CAK, COS and RNO. Enjoy your flight.

Do know by chance know which US Express carriers are "at-risk" and which ones are "fee-per-departure"?

8 ERJs left, flying 44 daily flights. J41s all gone.

Trans States does all the flying on PIT-RIC/STL and some of the flying on PIT-BDL/BWI/EWR/LGA/RDU/SDF and LGA-RIC. Obviously, the flying nowadays largely revolves around the existing TSA crew and maintenance bases.

They also did BOS-RIC until a month ago, when Chautauqua took it over, don't know if it'll be that way for good. (As with all of its pro-rate Express agreements, US reserves the right to take the markets for itself if it wants to.)

TSA has also done some of the weekend MYR/SAV flying at times, but not at the moment.

Colgan, Air Midwest, and what's left of the Trans States operation are pro-rate; everything else is capacity purchase.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
