Re: American Eagle News and Discussion Thread

The all gray aircraft (242 & 945) are just gray decals over the AA livery. Has nothing to do with scope, it has to do with YV trying to maintain a flying fleet - they currently have 40 aircraft under the CPA plus five additional short-term aircraft but are using 56 aircraft to cover that operat...

Re: American Eagle News and Discussion Thread

That being said, AA has a history of removing YV birds, whenever they have the option.. Although every so often they add a few , but with the ability to remove them with minimal notice. Those soul crushing generic MESA liveries are a drag. N242LR in particular. Basic AA grey, no titles. Faded in a ...

I’m guessing it’s either PSM or the first routes to ORF

It’s just the launch of Norfolk flights.

During the two-hour flight to CHS, I was offered water, Utz chips and a kind bar. No middle seat on E190 is a huge plus. The only ...
