Jetjack...that is a little uncomforting. Could it be that Compass can have a little more latitude than the mainline at this point? Isn't Compass treated as a separate entity compared to NW
mainline? Different certificate...etc.
It currently seems that NW
will replace the DC9s with A320s, A319s and something smaller (E-190/195 or CRJ-900). There were rumors way back that NW
was going to order the C-series (E-190 size) from Bombardier as a replacement for some of the DC-9s and for use on thinner mainline routes but since that plane was shelved, maybe NW
has to think a little harder and longer on what to get as well as talk a little more with pilots. No matter what NW
will need a replacement for the DC9s that will keep the fleet simpler and keep operations at a minimum. To me that points to E-190/195.
Anyway...I hope I will get a chance to fly on these E-jets. But I doubt they will serve CWA.
