GoJet - New Domicile/Crew Routing For DCI OPS?

Delta recently announced that GoJet won the bid for 12 CR7s and the flying is to begin some time in Q12012. I have a few questions that others may be able to answer. I originally had thought that all the frames were coming from Atlantic Southeast but ASA actually only flies 8 Delta owned CR7s; ships 317, 331, 354, 355, 376, 379, 390, and 659.

Now i'm curious if they are loosing all 8 plus the other 4 are coming from OO and or OH or the 12 are a combination of EV, OO, and EV.

Anyway, my true question as the topic suggests is, does anyone have any ideas as to how they will route their crew through ATL? When Pinnacle was awarded the -900 flying in ATL, they eventually had to open a crew domicile and this was only for 16 frames. Also, i'm not sure that "bridging" would work very well for them because of the way we schedule a/c. Most of these 700s although "Atlanta based" touch almost every hub through creative a/c routing.

As it is, real estate on the ramp level is at a premium. ASA's stuff had been recently rennovated on C concourse and all that space is currently being used by in-flight/OPS/MTC/admin etc. Pinnacle has their space on the opposite end of C. Shuttle America has a small office in the same area, what use to be ASA's old pilot breifing room and the crew rest area is currently being used by ASIG. Another back office that housed mailboxes is currently under construction and half used by Gate Gourmet.

The 8 you listed are going to GJ plus 4 OO CR7s: 340, 367, 368, and 668. All former OH birds.

I know the 4 frames you listed with OO doesn't see Atlanta. In fact, SkyWest hasn't flown through ATL for Delta in quite a while. Where are they based?

GoJet might find room over on D concourse, or they could use the new rooms they built next to the spine on C? I know that ASA took over the old training rooms on C for some of their management to make room at the GO for the ExpressJet folks.

Have they said that their will even be a crew base here???

My understanding was that these "12" airplanes would be based and flown mostly through CVG. Not sure they will have a crew base in ATL (I hope not anyway). Not happy seeing these planes go but at least we won't fly them at a loss.

I haven't heard anything as yet. A/C are to exit ASA's fleet at some point in the near future and be ready and flying with GoJet between Jan and March 2012. I noticed they're having a job fair in ATL very soon but for pilots. Haven't seen anything posted on their site for F/A hiring as yet. As far as I know, they don't have anyone on furlough so with the new flying, they will need bodies off the street.
