We have taken delivery of our first 2 CRJ's. They going on proving runs currently. We at SDF are all having to do the CRJ transition training. And it is mandatory. All other bases will be optional. The ERJ is the mainstay of our fleet, however the CRJ gives us another option. STL is supposes to get the CRJ as well as CMH and IND.

From the November 9 Form 10-Q:
In July 2006, the Company announced that it had reached an agreement to operate forty-four 50-seat regional jets for Continental Airlines, Inc. Twenty of the aircraft are ERJ-145 regional jets that will be transitioned from the Company's current US Airways operations. The Company expects the remaining 24 aircraft to be used CRJ-200 regional jets, acquired on short-term operating leases consistent with the terms of the Continental agreement. All 44 of the aircraft are expected to be placed into service for Continental between January and July 2007 and will be operated for terms that vary from two years to five years. Under certain conditions Continental may extend the term on the aircraft up to five additional years.
I understand on their quarterly earnings call it was mentioned the airline agreed to lease 12 CRJs and has a letter of intent to lease another 12 CRJs, of which 14 are ex-Independence Air aircraft.

That's actually pretty good news for pax (as well as for DH's lessor who got stuck with the birds). They are some of the most comfortable -200s out there.
