I need to get out of Norman for a bit, so I may go up there and see what I can snap a picture of.

A number of months ago AC had made arrangements to take over the leases on eight Indy Air CRJ 200's. I was starting to wonder if that had been cancelled,I guess you just answered that question.

The planes have been in limbo because of an arbitration over whether Jazz can add them to its fleet. The mainline pilots' grieved that the planes should go to AC, sometihng to do with Jazz exceeding its ratioed flying limit before sufficient E-Jets had arrived at the mainline. That grievance was settled late last week in favor of management, or so I have read in another forum. Therefore, you can presume they will be heading north any time now.

Quoting Sebring (Reply 3):

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.

I hope the 15 "whitetails" (DH8-Q400) come to fruition, they need these aircraft for High density routes in western Canada, whereas the 100 & 300 can't seem to fulfill the market demand, no matter what combination of type they place on the routes.
Routes in particular would be YVR-YLW/YKA/SEA/PDX/YYJ. The interior B.C. markets would definitely benefit with the additional uplift, especially during ski season!
You can't get there from here.
