Republic Holdings, Plans For This Year.

Mon Feb 12, 2007 12:55 pm

I'm just curious to know what all the republic group of airlines are planning on this year as far as expansion/ news/ rumors.
thanks

I would guess that it includes taking over more of the CO express routes once they can prove their reliability to CO HDQ, and further expansion into DL connection.

Other than that...all you are gonna get is pure speculation. The only thing constant in this industry is change.

they'll be flying for F9 if they can ever get the airplanes in time. also, 170s are supposed to replace a lot of the 145s for the us airways express fleet. they're flying for CO with both 145s and CRJ-200s. other than that, i don't know...

The first flights for Frontier are scheduled for March 4, so I hope they have some aircraft.

When to the E175 deliveries for RP start? They plan to hire 1000 pilots this year, so I'd say there's some good growth planned!

They have a long way to go in that department...... That's not a knock on my fellow aviators at Rjet. They know what the deal is.

Well, if you go to their web site and actually read it it says a lot about what they have planned for 2007.

Performance here for CO is very good. I can post numbers if you would like. I would like to see XJETs numbers. Dont bash us, things are good there with the charter service and new airline alone. Enjoy your new stuff there and dont be mad that Republic is having some success. This industry goes in phases it wont stay this good for ever here.

On to the topic at hand the first 3 170s for F9 are already on property and have been for months. These airplanes were used for Delta but were not part of a specific agreement for DL (ie extra flying). So those aircraft wont be a problem. The first 175s are supposed to be here in March, I guess Embraer is having trouble getting parts or something to that extent. 175s were supposed to have been here by now, hopefully soon.

As far as ive seen at IAH, service has been good. Seen a few late flights, but no more than is to be expected with a new type and base. Things are good so far as ive seen.

ExpressJet, congrats on upgrade. Hope to hear ya at IAH sometime.

Nobody I have read is bashing you guys. I don't personally have a problem with any of you. I hope things are going as well as you say with the CO operation, but I have heard otherwise.

By the way, what's up with your handle? Did you used to work at Xjet?

The -175 officially showed up in our bidpackets for next month. Hopefully this means they will actually show up on property soon.
Prepare doors for departure and cross-check.
