When will Mesaba replace their SF3s with ARJs cause I live in Youngstown and NWA stores their SF3s here overnight, I have access to the hanger and I really want to get some pics of their regional jets.

ARJ's hold 69 pax, XJ has 36 and thats all there ever will be since the Arvo is going out of production. I doubt YNG will ever see an Arvo as you only have 2x to DTW and one flight is a continuation from State College, PA.
Northwest has been assigning ARJ's to former DC-9-10 type routes and CRJ's to larger more competive markets. XJ has about 50 Saab's that are less than 5 years old that will be flying for many more years to come, don't expect a CRJ in YNG anytime soon.

Mesaba doesn't actually have any CRJ's, they are all owned/operated by Express I but are ground-serviced at Mesaba stations by Mesaba staff. The Avros were limited to 36 aircraft due to a clause in NW's pilot contract restricting the amount of aircraft of that size that can be flown by the Airlink partners. Coupled with the fact that the Avro isn't made anymore, that fleet will not see any growth in terms of additional aircraft. Mesaba's goal is to try to pick up some of the new allotment of CRJ's that NW has ordered. Right now Express I has all of them but negotiations are on to take some CRJ's.

ARJ's aren't a replacement for Saabs, they are in addition to. They fill a totally different need, being that they are roughly double the size.

In Detroit the Express 1 aircraft are serviced by Express 1 staff, not Mesaba.

There was a job fair I noticed yesterday by Express Airlines 1 at one of the hotels by DTW. They were hiring snack loaders and parts people for Express Airlines 1.

Mesaba may be getting a CRJ soon. Northwest ordered 75+ CRJ 440s a 44 seat version of the CRJ-200. They had something like another 75 for options. Deliveries are supposed to take place this summer.

Northwest is supposed to distribute the CRJs to both Mesaba and Express Airlines 1

It doesnt matter to me who flies the CRJ for Northwest since both 9e and xj serve Detroit. I wouldn't know the difference other than by registration, both have the same colors when flying into DTW.
