Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

Yea, I was just going through the May/June schedule internally and it shows no CRJ9 flying at all for Skywest, only 1 CR7 is scheduled so it can do ASE while it looks like Endeavor took about 30 CRJ9s out of storage to cover that Skywest CRJ9 flying. While officially not announced by Delta, in Skyw...

Do you know what that will do to its range? I think it's a material reduction in range. The airplane has to be about 10k lighter MGTOW (65k) than the standard CR7. You can reduce OEW a bit by taking out seats/crew, and 50 pax payload is lower, but with all seats occupied, most of that weight saving...

To elaborate. The limit is 102 70 seaters and 153 76 seaters. United is at that limit so they are converting some CRJ700's to 50 seaters and replacing them with 70 seaters.
