I have a simple question: Why doesn't the majors have turboprops/RJ's in their fleets? Instead of United paired with Skywest, Mesa, GoJets, Republic, Trans States, etc., why not have RJ's in their stable? That way the airline feeds itself and not have to rely on a commuter airline. The flight crews would start in the turboprop/RJ, then work their way up. What are the reasons for not running an airline this way?

I will have a Manhattan.

The costs are much lower at the regional carriers than they are at the majors. Not sure if the major airline pilot unions would let their pilots fly for wages as low as what the regionals are willing to accept.
