Perhaps he's thinking about the 76 seat aircraft skywest is getting for their Delta flying?
Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

nope. they just had a meeting with regionals this week. deltas 900's have 75 seats btw. so essentially ual's are -705's.

Actually, they have 70 seats right now. The DL pilot's contract doesn't allow regionals to fly anything greater than 70 seats until January 1, 2007. Then, the cap will be 76 seats for DL.

2-3 of Delta's 17 new CRJ900 are already flying, so this is great news if United Express also want 17 x CRJ900. Does UAX have a 70-seat cap in their contract or have they increased it to 76 seats there as well?

Maybe they'll send some to TUS. That would make two airlines with these jets here. they could run them to LAX and DEN to accomodate more premium pax.
I love ASO!

6 are on property. 4 line airplanes and 2 spares. One is currently replacing a 700 that has not come back from C-Check yet.

Not unless your brother and his fellow pilots at United relaxed the scope clause.

Nope. They have 70 now. 10 first and 60 coach. After the first of the year they go to 76, but I can't remember how the cabins are split up.

No 76 seat flying for UAX. Scope is still at 70. That is why we have not ordered the 175 for UA. Only US.
