F9 Trenton Based 319: Which Animal?

Sun Nov 25, 2012 2:07 am

Daniel Schurz said in a news interview that with the expansion of the Princeton/Trenton (as they call it) market they would be basing a 319 out of TTN. Anyone know which specfic different kind of animal will be based at TTN?

The 319 will not be locked into TTN-only service. The aircraft will most likely rotate with the rest of the 319 fleet via a point in Florida.

Except that's what Senior Vice President- Commerical Dan Shurz said in a video interview with local paper the Times of Trenton and I looked into it and they have a pretty full schedule in and out of TTN keeping a plane busy from 8am to 8pm with 40 minute turns in between 7 days a week.

At some point they will have to rotate the plane out for mx, I am pretty sure they won't have mx in TTN unless it contracted.

He's planning, not maintenance. Typically at the U.S. carriers, the whole fleet fully rotates so that in normal conditions a particular flight will see the whole fleet of that type one day at a time. This is intended to keep hours growth uniform across the fleet. In practice, swaps usually mess it up, but that's the intention in the published schedule.

I do not know F9's schedule at all but that doesn't mean that the aircraft can't be swapped in MCO or FLL or whatnot.

Despite whatever he said, I can almost 90% assure you that F9 are not going to earmark an A319 and leave it in Trenton permanently. What he means is that there will always be an A319 overnighting in Trenton, and indeed it could be the same aircraft for several weeks at a time. They will, however, rotate the aircraft over MCO (or wherever) for maintenance. You will almost definitely see several frames "based" there during the flying program.

You're missing it. You will see at least 2 planes a day. The aircraft has to rotate in and out of DEN one way or another. Basing an aircraft somewhere, in airline speak, usually just means that they will base a crew there. Most airlines have x amount of pilots and x amount of FA's per aircraft at a given crew base.

Would be hilarious if the A/C had a bumblebee on its tail...

A PLANE will be based in TTN, not THE PLANE

In other words, there will be an A319 overnighting in TTN. The overnights will be having a different tail each night in TTN.

Right, no basing of an airplane, just an RON.

To add, if I may, same with the crew. They'll overnight in TTN, but won't be "based" there. Schurtz used the incorrect terms.
