I've read in several forums on a.net in the past few days that in nutshell that Republic's Q400 flying for United Express is an on going disaster.. Can anyone get into more detail about whats really going on with Republic and the Q? How is United contributing to problem or solution?

Does anyone have a complete list of the tail numbers operated by Republic at this point already?

Right now, some do, some don't. But eventually, they will all have it.



Good goes around!

Certainly the Q400 is and has been a maintenance pig, but the issues for YX flying as UAX with them are largely driven by crew issues.

The wind-up was too rapid, crew availability is a big problem and there were some related issues.

From what I gather (FWIW) it is an intersection of the Q's integral mx complexities and RAH's absence of 'hands on' Q mx complexities. Other operators reported a pretty steep learning curve with this plane...to the point where SAS rejected the type. One would assume that is whats going on here.

Also, based on experience at my station, if you get a former Lynx plane, on time has been ok. If you get a former Colgan plane, you might as well have the mechanics waiting.

Anyone been inside these airplanes, or regularly work on them? I'm curious about their configuration. Is there only one forward LAV still, and do they have a forward galley for first class provisioning?

RAH and F9 had experience with the type via Lynx. It's not like they jumped into this blind.

And you better believe RAH put the screws to Bombardier because they knew what the scoop was with these aircraft.

I had a chance to do some more research and you are correct. Looks like RAH is is doing the line mx while Bombardier is doing all heavy MRO work on the fleet through June 2021. So much for my learning curve theory.
