Checking flight aware lately and realized that at some point a switch was made from the CRJ 700s on the route before . When and why the switch? With WN, US, and DL and UA flying the route as well albeit via regional affiliates.

I read on the forum (I believe it was from Mark) that this switch was due to Eagle's retirement of the smaller ERJs. Essentially the retirement of the smaller ERJs resulted in a shift of regional aircraft around the system. PHX unfortunately saw a down gauge from CRJ to ERJ. Most likely the CRJs were redeployed to routes with a higher yield since the CRJ has an F cabin.
