What airlines are considered NW regionals? Is Northwest Airlink an airline or is it just a name? Thanks.

Mesaba, I believe is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NWA.

I think Northwest also owns Express Airlines I. They fly the majority of the Memphis flights and i think they are getting some of the new CRJ's.

Northwest Airlink is the product name. The airlines that operate as Northwest Airlink include Mesaba and Express 1 (which NW owns). Pacific Island Aviation, based in Guam, is also a Northwest Airlink. The words Northwest Airlink usually are painted on the fuselage of these carriers.

American Eagle is also a Northwest Airlink carrier for New England (BOS) and California (LAX).

American Eagle is considered a "Service Partner", not an Airlink.

Airlink's are painted with an NW colorscheme. Service Partners operate as an independent carrier which codeshare with NW.

Airlinks are: Mesaba, Express Airlines I, Pacific Island Aviation.

Service Partners include: AS, QX, AZ, KQ, GQ, American Eagle, Business Express, Gulfstream.

Continental and KLM are Alliance Partners, because the agreements with them go beyond mere codesharing.

36 ARJ's.. would that make Mesaba one of the world's biggest operators of the ARJ?


Next flight.... who knows.

Northwest recently ordered 75 44 seat versions of the CRJ-200 for its regionals Mesaba and Express Airlines. This is in addition to the 50 that Express Airlines 1 has of the 50 seat version of the CRJ200 or will have from a previous order. Northwest also has another 175 on option.

Deliveries of the 44 seat version are to take place in 2002

It has in no way been confirmed yet that Mesaba will operate any of the crj's.

Right now Express I operates all the 50 seaters. As for the 44 seaters I believe we will get the first batch at least, as it would be tough to impossible for Mesaba to set up evereything that would be required. We had 2 years and it was tough to get everything ready for the CRJs now, the first 44 seaters are due in just over a year from now. With all the orders I suspect they will be divided up alongest Mesaba and EXpress I. We are really the major Airlinks while the others are independents that NWA codesharse with in certain areas. Bigsky is another US commuter we code share with.
