Looks like XA-MRC's status has officially been changed to "scrapped". Do you have a link for this?. I assume he's referring to Planespotters.net, which changed the status to scrapped on their listings. It had its wings and fear fuselage removed during scrapping on something like the 5th N...Jump to post

Why would that be?
Wouldn't read into that; the airline has long provided training and maintenance to other companies. Probably just investing in making that a more profitable part of the business. There's not a huge amount of airlines wanting ERJ or Q400 training.Jump to post
Landings had an SDR search engine but it's inoperative. There's another very-slow-and-buggy one that doesn't seem current, but lets you search the MSN field, which is helpful with foreign-registered aircraft that might cycle through a repair station that reports to the FAA, but then doesn't show ho...Jump to post

Airfleets hasn't updated. Last E195 in the database was added in 2015 for Azul.
Given the speed difference between an E Jet and a Dash what will be the impact on timings. Will some routes need to be dropped. Speed alone doesn't mean they will drop routes; look down the road at Southampton where Palma is frequently done on the Q400. However, Flybe's new owners will be re-evalua...Jump to post
Ex-F9 N771XF entered revenue service with AA on 5/8. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/N771XF Oddly enough, this appears to be the only -111 in the AA A319 fleet at the moment.

Yes on the registration change. No on the configuration change. Doesn't mean it won't happen.

On the FAA register, on 04 September 2018, SkyWest Embraer ERJ-175LL N262SY and N265SY operating for Delta Connection, were both changed to ERJ-175LR type. Which would imply that Delta/SkyWest added another 6 seats to these aircraft.
Can anyone confirm this was the case?

CSA site concurs with the fleet count, with exceptions of 1) A319 -- CSA says they have 7 of these, not 1. 2) 737 -- CSA says they have none. But yeah, OK is way smaller than many of us imagine.

I understand it’s possible. But why would an airline take a plane out of service to do that for no return on investment. Even in maintenance that will cost money to do, take time, with no return. Surely no airline would see the value in this? So that they could put in an extra row of seats without ...Jump to post
As far as I know any of the aircraft that have had Y186 added (have a look on Planespotters.net, they're doing pretty well at keeping up to date with the changes).

Flybe has been saved now - EGM won’t have any effect on the airline itself.

My main thinking behind this is because obviously BE is mainly UK regional destinations which to me VS etc will want to drop.

Highly likely the aircraft are summer-only leases from Titan Airways or someone like SmartLynx, just like last year. Jethro's (http://www.jethros.org.uk) is now listing that G-POWN, G-POWU, G-POWV and an unspecific A321 from SmartLynx will be leased to Jet2 this summer... to be based at STN and BHX.Jump to post
