Does OO have mx, training, etc. facilities at SLC? I figured it might be similar to everyone funneling various Republic brands as regionals to CMH with the base and mx facility there, for example.

Later this year when OO starts operating for AA out of LAX, They will be operating SLC-LAX for three different airlines, Delta, United and American.
|Quoting enilria (Reply 4):|
That is crazy. All three alliances as well. ...and people say there is no difference in product between airlines, LOL.
|Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 5):|
Staying within the scope of the thread here, if you've flown SLC-ORD on both DLC or UAX in the recent past, one would certainly note the difference in product---even on the same regional.
Sure, you get a cold meal in first on DLC, but it's still a meal.

Thanks! I figured OO at SLC had something to do with that.
|Quoting sancho99504 (Reply 7):|
but they really need larger RJs for their west coast regional routes especially since its roughly the same cost to operate a cr-7/9 or a cr-2.
|Quoting xjramper (Reply 10):|
The statement I quoted above is technically incorrect as the CR2s cost so much more to operate than the nextgen CR7/9s. But with very little options AA has, it is technically stuck with the CR2.
|Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 2):|
SLC is the largest MX base, and is a large crew base (but not the largest anymore.)
|Quoting sancho99504 (Reply 16):|
Higher CASM= cost more per mile to fly=higher operating cost.
Its cheaper to fly a 70 seater with 50 passengers than a full 50 seater.
|Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 18):|
You mis-understand me. On a block-for-block basis, the -700 is NOT cheaper to operate than the -200. When you compare CASM to CASM, yes it is.
