How Long Till A Air Whisky CRJ900 In US Paint?

Thu Mar 31, 2005 3:21 am

With all of the money Air Wisconsin just gave US I was wondering how long would it be till the first A/C (mainly the 900) would be flown by them for US?

A very long time, given that Air Wisconsin doesn't fly any CR9s, nor do they plan to buy any.

The POR has to be approved first and then U actually has to exercise the options as part of the AWAC funding package. It'll be a little while yet till you see the CR9s in U colors flown by AWAC or any of the other surviving feeders (WO or not).

Unless fuel prices go down quite a bit in the next couple of months, I would venture to say the 30th of Never.

They don't have 900s and they don't have any on order... where'd you pull the 900 from?

It is AWAC who decides whether or not AWAC flies for US Airways as I understand it.

Anyway, there is indeed talk of CRJ-900s, at least internally. Nevertheless, this company is famous for keeping secrets so internal rumors really mean nothing.

I will believe it when I see it. But I would not say it won't happen with the same certainty that some others here seem to think.

AWAC will come out of this turbulent period a winner. I am sure of that.

What are the chance of seeing the new C-Series in US paint, it would fill the gap left behind by the 737 being parked. I would think that the promise or even idea alone would be enough for AWAC to fork over that muck money. Just an idea.

As far the C-Series goes...anything is possible, but U seems pretty commited to have the Embraer product as the go between the mainline fleet and the 50-seaters.

The CR9 is a very cool aircraft. I'm not that familiar with the costs of operation one though.

The CR9 is a horrible aircraft compared to its competitor...
