Correct me if I am wrong, but didnt US give 190's to Republic as payment for regional flying a few years ago??
|Quoting b757capt (Reply 5):|
No, It was a sale when US was trying to raise its cash position. Now the role is reversed and RP would like to unload them.

Then again I heard the short time and large amount of cycles the shuttle markets create are not good for the jungle jet.
|Quoting midex461 (Reply 10):|
A bit off topic, I know, but....is it within the realm of possibility that an E190 base could be opened up in PHX? There's a few markets out west that would be about perfect for that sized aircraft - SAT, FAT, BUR, SBA, ABQ, AUS, TUS, among others
|Quoting spiritair97 (Reply 15):|
Many of their a321 flights out of PHX cruise around 29,000 feet.
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 16):|
|Quoting spiritair97 (Reply 15):|
That's not completely true. US' a321s have been historically underpowered
|Quoting spiritair97 (Reply 19):|
Did a quick search and found a few....
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 21):|
|Quoting spiritair97 (Reply 22):|
I checked for all those routes and the other flightsmwere cruising at normal altitudes (34,000-37,000 feet), or else I would have posted them.
|Quoting csturdiv (Reply 17):|
Several years ago I got an E90 flight on ORD-CLT, was a nice change from the B734s that they use now. As I fly US a lot on ORD-CLT-RSW, I wish they would go back to the E90 on the ORD-CLT leg.
|Quoting FutureUScapt (Reply 24):|
Not sure when the last time you flew US on ORD-CLT was, but the route is almost exclusively 321s nowadays - seven out of eight flights to be exact with some exceptions on Saturdays.
|Quoting USAirALB (Reply 2):|
I think, I'm so sure that there used to be an E190 base in CLT. With them acquiring E190s from F9/Republic, who knows what will happen.
Looking at the current flight schedule, I see an E190 (or E90 as US calls it) flying CLT-RDU, but thats it out of CLT.
|Quoting womenbeshoppin (Reply 26):|
Once in a blue moon you will see an E90 on the CLT and PHL to NAS route. And I believe I saw one on a PHL to MBJ route the other day. Nice little aircraft, but horrible to cargo load.

Where were you getting your information?
|Quoting spiritair97 (Reply 31):|
Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 30):
Ok, I see I was wrong to say that the a321s have disadvantages. But in the summer you do see a lot of them flying lower, probably due to the heat. You are right, though because most of the time they cruise at normal altitudes. I apologize.
|Quoting ABQopsHP (Reply 32):|
Is there a difference between the East US and the ones acquired for the West operations?
|Quoting boberito6589 (Reply 33):|
The older East 321s with the 1xx ship numbers have CFM engines are are generally the aircraft that tend to have an issue at times. The West and new East 321s with 5xx ship numbers have the IAE engines and perform much better in the heat.
