|Quoting Sebring (Reply 3):|
The mainline pilots' grieved that the planes should go to AC, something to do with Jazz exceeding its ratioed flying limit before sufficient E-Jets had arrived at the mainline.
I'm really starting to wonder if Jazz really has use for so many CRJ100's & 200's. If my numbers are correct,they will have a fleet of 58. 10 ex Midway 200's,15 new factory built 200's,25 ex AC
mainline 100's and these 8 from Indy. Looking into the near term future,we see AC
& Jazz's fleet of aircraft under 100 seats composed of (58) 50 seat regional jets,(15) 10J/65Y CRJ 705's,(15) 9J/64Y E75's and (45) 9J/84Y E90's. I wonder if the CRJ 100's are only staying short term,as I understand that their performance lags compared to the 200's? Jazz has been mulling the idea of acquiring some DH400's(Possibly the 15 purchase options they chose not to exercise,as there was no penalty.),I see only limited use for this type of aircraft,but with fuel prices as they are today,one never knows.
