2-3 of Delta's 17 new CRJ900 are already flying, so this is great news if United Express also want 17 x CRJ900. Does UAX have a 70-seat cap in their contract or have they increased it to 76 seats there as well?

Quoting FlyPNS1 (Reply 3): Actually, they have 70 seats right now. The DL pilot's contract doesn't allow regionals to fly anything greater than 70 seats until January 1, 2007. Then, the cap will be 76 seats for DL.

6 are on property. 4 line airplanes and 2 spares. One is currently replacing a 700 that has not come back from C-Check yet.
Quoting ERAUgrad02 (Thread starter): Just heard news from my brother who flies for united that skywest just ordered 17 crj-900's configured with 76 seats. anyone else heard this?
Not unless your brother and his fellow pilots at United relaxed the scope clause.
Quoting ERAUgrad02 (Reply 2): nope. they just had a meeting with regionals this week. deltas 900's have 75 seats btw. so essentially ual's are -705's.
Nope. They have 70 now. 10 first and 60 coach. After the first of the year they go to 76, but I can't remember how the cabins are split up.
