Indy Air Jets At TUS

Tue Aug 02, 2005 1:05 pm

On July 30th 2005, I saw several Indy Air CRJs at TUS along with an HP CR9, and an HP 733. Whats up with that?? Did Indy Air have interest in TUS?

FlyI significantly reduced flying early in February, due to excess capacity and GECAS sitting in their neck lease payments, so FlyI decided to drop some CRJs. Those CRJs at TUS (8 or 12) will be going to ASA very soon to operate for DL.

I noticed those indy jets also the other day....additionally, I was driving on Park, crossing valencia wher the road curves to the right and you are at the approach end of 11L/R and there is a partially enclosed hangar just to the left that had atleast 4 or 5 CRJs (mostly United) having maintanenace done. It was like midnight or so, and a few of the CRJs had just landed and there was alot of activity. From what I can remember is that this hangar had a bunch of really hold planes at it as of not that long ago....just an observation...any other observations
Roger that, turning to our "other" left

Just what DL needs, more expensive RJs (high CASM) that average lower loads than mainline, thus less margin, if any. Will someone stop the RJ madness! The business case just does not work for how airlines like Indy and DL are using them.
