Does anyone "in the know" have a clue as to what Champion Air is going to do with fleet renewal?

They fly 727 now and if I had to guess, I'd say they will probably upgrade to 738's but that's just a guess.

The company has to be thinking about fleet renewal...don't they?

Probably pick up 2nd hand MD80's (AA or DL in a few years) or 734's (US)

I dont think their business model supports brand new aircraft

Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

Wasn't there talk at one time Champion was going to pick up some of NWA's A-320's?

From reading other posts, it sounds like some of NWA's A-320's are being WFS and scrapped with no chance at a second life.

Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

Hard to say, but since NW has a part in Champion I would say NW will help with that decision.

I'm guessing the A320. NW could instead of scrapping some of their A320's, give them to Champion Air. I will definately miss passenger 727s at MSP.  Sad

It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

Actually a relaible source from the sharp end of their 727's has previously told me that this order may swing towards new build A-319's but again this is rumor and we all know how the rumor mills work. For petes sake there has been a rumor floating around my company that CRJ-900's were in our fleet future for about two years now. I will beleive it when I see it.

There is plenty of room for Gods animals, right next to the mashed potatoes!
