I know OO is doing some CRJ flying for AS now, is this going to be a finite few flights or does anyone think this could end up being quite an operation in the future? Maybe getting into SLC down the road? What other routes and cities could this open up for AS? Or will OO's flying be limited to current routes and destinations?

The flying that OO took over was already existing capacity- It was previously flown by QX.

Alaska Air Group wanted the cost benefit of operating Horizon Air with an all Q400 fleet. Certain markets that Horizon had flown with the CR7 however weren't fit for Q400 service (just too long) and therefore AAG looked outside the family for another regional.

Not sure how much longer Horizon Air will even be around- Skywest is certainly looking for the business from Alaska and if they can prove they can do this flying successfully, maybe they will look for more Alaska markets they can serve.

As far as SLC goes I don't see why AS needs to have a physical presence there when they have the codes via their DL codeshare agreements- OO CR7s can be rotated through CA maintenance bases I'm sure- such as FAT- and don't have a lot of reason to visit SLC?

OO is adding some seasonal capacity in current markets (SEA-LGB) but is very much limited by the few aircraft they have flying in AS colors. Right now, the CRJ700's are rotated through FAT for maintenance. If not for that fact, we'd see FAT-SEA all Q, I'm sure.

aren't these CR7s ex QX ones? Did OO operate on the interior of these aircraft at all? They had been beat up pretty good at Horizon.

New interiors, done up AS with the blue leather. The aircraft look good as new.

makes sense... It would be unlike Skywest to fly any of there airplanes without nice interiors- even their "old" embs aren't bad. Any pictures out there of the new interior?
