ACA initially thought they would keep the DL
flying, since their DL
Connection agreement doesn't prohibit it. It was only after ACA
made their announcement that DL
told them about the clause in the DL
pilot's contract that prohibits DL
connection carriers from flying jets with over 70 seats. DL
may terminate the contract without cause with (I believe) 90 days notice (not 180 as previously stated). ACA
then has the option to force DL
to buy the 328JETs. ACA
has said that it would exercise that option, in order to simplify their fleet. Check ACA
's recent 10-Q, that's where I got the info.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
