Delta Connection CRJ-200

Wed Sep 28, 2005 2:56 pm

Hi all

Does anyone know why 8 CRJ were moved from ASA to OH? The registrations are 862-867AS and N910EV, N912EV, N913EV. Did OH bye them or is it a temp thing?

Thanks Matt

The switch over occured due to Comair pilot pay "freeze" for growth program. In order for OH to get their agreement with the pilots, they had to get "growth" (more RJ's on property) by a certain time frame. DL Connection then decided to transfer 10 ASA planes to OH to meet this requirement. At the same time ASA replaced these jets going to OH by taking some lower leased priced ex-Indyair RJ's. 12 indyAir RJ's have been coming in with their temporary "BR" registrations until we change them over to EV reg's. Now it looks however that the whole deal might be in the air with the DL BK.

As it should be.....the RJ has hurt DL significantly. Reducing the RJ fleet is in DL's best interest.

I noticed that yesterday when an "EV" registered CR2 pulled in with "By Comair" titles. Also interesting to note that several ASA CR2s have "BR" registrations.
