Republic ERJ-170s

Tue May 18, 2004 11:59 am

Okay, I know that this has likely been discussed, but a search yielded nothing. For which airline(s) will Republic operate the ERJ-170? Thanks in advance for your replies.

Cheers,

As far as I know, Republic's ERJ-170s will fly on behalf of United Express.

As of this moment, Republic's E170s will operate strictly for UAL under the 'United Express' banner.

However, given Republic Holdings (parent company of CHQ and Republic Airways) close relationship with US Airways, one could eventually see Republic E170s in US Airways Express colors should the mainline pilots ever yield to the current stipulation that all ~70-seat aircraft be operated by mainline (MidAtlantic Airways) or a wholly-owned subsidiary (PSA).

Post script: The proper designation of the new Embraer airframe is 'E170' or 'Embraer 170'. Embraer has worked hard to market this aircraft as NOT being a 'regional jet', hence why they didn't classify it as a 'ERJ-170'.

Does anyone know where United Express will send their Embraer 170s?

Although there are many who agree with you, the current contract expressly states that the EMB-170 may only be flown at MidAtlantic. The CRJ-700, on the other hand, can indeed be flown at affiliates, i.e. Mesa.

Your rebuttal of my statement is superfluous as your argument is listed in the quotation from my original post:

I agreed with you that the current contract has the E170 only being flown at MidAtlantic. But you said that "all ~70-seat aircraft be operated by mainline (MidAtlantic Airways) or a wholly-owned subsidiary (PSA)", when in fact the CR7 (a 70-seat aircraft) can be operated by a US Airways Express affiliate carrier.

Ah, I was under the impression that only a wholly-owned subsidiary (PSA) could operate the CRJ700s on behalf of US Airways as US Airways Express. I supposed that Mesa's withdrawal from the arrangement to operate the CRJ700s was sign that the ~70-seater aircraft could not be operated by a non-US Airways-owned entity.

Ça fait du sens, j'espère.

That would indeed be the reasonable conclusion. Unfortunately, it's never quite that simple with US.  Smile

Lookat page 6 of this month's AirWays magazine to see a picture of Republic's first EMB-170 painted in NEW United colors.

That's not a real photo- someone's very good with a photo editor..... Looks good though!!!
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

I hope they come to GRR (good possibility in my mind) and may be even SBN (fat chance).  Big thumbs up

ok guys, I can ad to the post that, the order of 50 jets is 13+(37), that the first one will be delivered from July 2004 to March 2005.
On the options, 12 of the 37 have to be confirmed until July 1st-04, and the rest until july 1st-05.
The main idea is them to fly with United colours.

Have a nice day.

Long Live E-170´s

Throw another thing in with US Airways...PSA Management sent a statement to the ALPA that they will give all CRJ-701 flying to the mainline pilots and none to the PSA pilots.
