A little over a month ago there was a thread on Republic flying for Alaska. Today, we learn that my prediction was correct.

It's a codeshare in Hawaii, not capacity purchase.

Quoting SuperDash,:
Or it could also be a codeshare in Hawaii with Mokulele. There is history with Alaska and the owner of Mokulele. But it is not likely a not capacity purchase for flights in the Northwest.!

Not quite. Alaska has added Mokulele Airlines as a Mileage Plan partner and Mokulele, coincidentally, has contracted with Republic to operate some flights within Hawaii. Alaska has a partnership with Delta as well but, by virtue of that, Alaska doesn't have a partnership with Mesa Airlines. In any case, I believe that the original topic was loosely (if not exactly) referencing the possibility of Republic operating some flying on the mainland as "Alaska Express" in place of Horizon once Horizon stops operating the CR7's.

On a side note,

I think its all smoke and mirrors with the CR7s.

The truth of the matter is they really want someone else to fly 100 seats for dirt cheap, AS certainly doesn't want to take even lower pay to fly a 190 or a CRJ1000, and QX would have a fit if AAG had someone else in the system, unfortunately QX has a very senior workforce for a regional airline, as well as some of the better regional industry contracts.

I think the 73Gs work well for AS, but I can see them being an all 800/900 airline operating from SEA/LAX/ANC and giving QX PDX with 76 seaters, and eventually 90-100 seat jets.
