According to the July edition of ATW magazine the article about OO mentions:

"Last December the company ordered 18 CRJ700 NextGen aircraft and four CRJ900 NextGens, plus 22 options for either type. The CRJ700s will be operated for United Express, the CRJ900s for Delta Connection by Skywest's Atlantic Southeast Airlines subsidiary. Skywest also flies under contract for Midwest Airlines."

SkyWest does do some CRJ-900 flying for Delta, out of Atlanta and Salt Lake City. The other current CRJ-900 operators for Delta are Comair (primarily out of Cincinnati, some JFK flying), Pinnacle (Atlanta - this flying is being terminated though...) and Freedom (Atlanta/JFK).

I have a feeling this was just a misprint or misunderstanding. It's been stated numerous times that the 4 CRJ-900s still on order are for SkyWest. But there is a possibility that this has been changed.


Now that I think about it though, why would ASA have a fleet of only 4 of one type. Not only are these 900s instead of 700s and 200s, but they are NextGen, which has quiet a few differences from the OldGens (which is what all of ASA's fleet is made up of).

Even if they only have 4 -900's, it wouldn't be as big an issue as you think it is. All it would require is some proving runs and differences training, since the the crews and other personnel have experiene with other models of the type. However, what would be an issue—in the case of ASA—is crew scheduling and contractual wording.
