Q400s For United Express (Republic)

This is my second attempt posting this topic as the first one didn't go through. I'm not sure if this was discussed previously.

I have noticed that all of the ex-Colgan Air Q400s are now being operated by Republic out of DEN. Will these aircraft ever be cycled back through to the east coast United hubs like EWR and IAD or will they be strictly DEN based?

Many thanks

They're showing up in the EWR and IAD schedules for Winter '13.

Nooooo, this will probably force them to backtrack on one of the changes I like.

At EWR most of the Explus planes are now going from terminal C rather than A. That is awesome......

If the Q's come back they will force the explus flights back to A.

Not necessarily, if anything it will make more sense to keep the large RJs in C, and move the Q400s to A to be with the ERJs.


Out of interest, what is the status of the Commutair flying?

The excellent "United Airlines Fleet Website" lists the entire Q300 and a large portion of the Q200 fleet as having being withdrawn from service.

Due to the wingspan of the Q400s they have to be at the C gates. Also, for one I know that IAD-PVD goes back to the Q400 on december 19th.

With regard to the Q200s, it's wrong, but I don't know precisely how wrong. I just checked flightaware and see 12 aircraft - all Q200s save one - airborne.

Does UA still use the three legacy gates in the A-1 concourse at EWR?

That's where the Shuttle America EMB-170s usually park, and what ORDBOSEWER was lamenting...

Obviously EWR is space premium and this is much easier said than done, but I'm sure that they would like to shut these gates down. If nothing else, they have their own UnitedClub!

Aren't those gates where one of the 11. September planes departed from?

The Q400 will stay at Terminal C. Probably the 170's as well. B6 has finally moved from Gates 21-22. So we now have the whole A-2 concourse. But the new gates aren't operational yet, but the lines are painted for ERJ's and 170's. If by chance the 170's come back to A-2, there will be 4 gates (21, 22, 24A, 25) will be able to handle them. But they will stay at C-2 (except the inbound YYT non- pre clear at C-3.

The Q's will stay at Terminal C.

The Q400's problems in DEN have nothing to do with DEN, but rather simply teething issues with a large-scale ramp-up by YX. The Q400's aren't leaving DEN. There are just more coming online that will be flying the EWR and IAD operations. They will have major Q400 operations in all 3.



Good goes around!

Oh, I was not aware of that. I had heard somewhere that they were having problems with thw altitude which made no sense to me (maybe the non-NextGens but even hen it wasn't quite fitting).

Thanks for xlearing that up.

On a side note, how many Q400s does UA have on order?

If both the Q400s and E170s stay at C, what is going to happen to A1?

Further, is there room for them all at C during peak times? I was under the impression that mainline took up a large proportion of the available gates.

B6 has the two remaining UA gates (16-17) Gate 18 is a common use gate but B6 has access to it as we'll. WN has the other former UA gates (14-15) in the slot swap deal, along with Gate 10. AC has gates 11-12.
There s no Gate 13 at A-1.

Most of the 170's come and go in the mid-afternoon bank. Now with the Q400 in the mix, I'm pretty sure that bank can handle the activity. But more than likely Terminal A may see a couple of 170's.

OK, thanks for that. I take it that other than maybe the occasional use of A18, UA has now basically drawn down A1 operations?

We don't park any of our 170's at terminal A anymore, since the first week of November. We mostly get the odd numbered C101-111 gates and sometimes C70 and a couple of others on the end of C-2. It sounded like the move was going to be permanent with no further operations scheduled at A.

Oh no, the Q400 is a wonderful plane for DEN. Republic just has to get their rhythm. It will do fine.

And while UA doesn't have any Q400s per se, more and more Q400's will be re-entering service in the coming months as RJET ramps up to the full fleet of 32. It's going to be exciting to watch.

If nothing else, they have their own UnitedClub!

UA has transferred space in A-1 to B6. The A-1 United Club (former RCC) closed on 11/11. Rumors were that AC would take over the UC space as they did at LGA, but that has failed to materialize. The former United Club at A-1 is a large facility, even including a onetime International First Lounge, a remnant of extensive United operations at EWR in the 1990s through early 2000s. It is probably too big for AC's somewhat modest EWR station.
