This was posted a few months back ASA will be doing the run out of ATL don't be suprise to see more DL CRJ700 in the caribbean I know ASA also applied to routes like POP and KIN just a month back DL was flying CRJ from LGA to NAS.
I don't know about Part 121 ops, but under Part 91 planes can fly from the Florida area down to the Caribbean without no raft, as long as the a/c stays within 100 miles from land. And Part 135 the same, except they have to stay within 50 miles from land with no raft. Maybe OPNLguy can give us the facts io 121 ops overwater.

I highly doubt those CRJ's to ATL will hurt JetBlue or Continental to NYC. I flew for ASA and while the CRJ700's are much nicer than the 200's, its still not a comfortable plane to travel in for anything over 2 hours. There were no life rafts on any ASA aircraft as far as I can remember. Only crew life vests and infant life vests, pax use seat cushion as a flotation device.
