I bet its E-175's for Delta. I have my sources... Can't wait to see them in DL colors.
|Quoting Ddurr1 (Reply 6):|
I know what source you're talking about - and that source mentioned next year (hypothetically) so I doubt there'd be an announcement about that right now. Must be something else exciting (and good, hopefully).
|Quoting ERAUgrad02 (Reply 7):|
um no. A family member I'm very close with flys 170s for RP. I knew of this weeks ago. So you dont know my source. They are also having major problems right now. There is a pilot shortage systemwide and the are upgrading F/O's to Capt out of line from the seniority list.
|Quoting ERJ170 (Reply 10):|
Is this announcement for Republic HOLDINGS or Republic AIRWAYS? Two big differences.. Republic Holdings could be for Delta, US, or UA.. Republic Airways can only be for US.. correct?
|Quoting Ddurr1 (Reply 9):|
No reason to be rude, especially now that I see you don't work for the company, you just know someone who does. I do work the company, and I do know the source. The CEO said in one of his weekly letters that he sees us flying 175s for Delta by the middle of next year. Hardly concrete - just hypothetical. And believe me - I'm aware of all the pilot shortages. That's why I said that I hope the news is good - not bad.
|Quoting ERAUgrad02 (Reply 12):|
wasnt being rude at all. the family member is my brother so its pretty concrete the info i get. im sorry if there was some attack word at u from my last post. Ill be waiting to hear when either you post or he calls. Hes in AUS tonight so.

I'd hate to see RP acquire Comair. RP is a good company.

As long as they manage to somehow get the old Republic logo from NW. Those were some smart looking planes.

Opening up PHX and PHL as crew bases, reducing US base in IND.
|Quoting Jdwfloyd (Reply 21):|
Look for the US base in IND to move to PHL and PIT to increase to about one hundred lines.
|Quoting Jdwfloyd (Reply 21):|
It seems PIT will be the main base for all Republic flying on the US side, and one of the main maintenance bases.
|Quoting Jdwfloyd (Reply 25):|
No thats in the number of Capt or FO lines for bidding. That would include the reserve lines as well.
|Quoting Steeler83 (Reply 26):|
oh... But I do wonder, how many flights do they have currently at PIT and how many do they intend to operate? Does anybody have an idea?
|Quoting Indy (Reply 31):|
I don't know if there is much point having a base here
|Quoting ExpressJet_ERJ (Reply 34):|
New rumor up on the pilot website is that DL E175s 4 are in the hangar down in Brazil, deliveries to start in the next 2 months total of 25-30. Who knows its all rumors, but the stock sure has spiked.
|Quoting ERAUgrad02 (Reply 35):|
