I got the 75% of mainline figure from the link below. From page 4, "The total number of regional aircraft with greater than 30 seats cannot exceed 75% of the active mainline narrowbody fleet."

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2018

So as part of their quarterly earnings, AA updated the fleet plan(linked below). With the CRJ-900 and E-175 orders, the American Eagle fleet plan shows 607 planes at the end of 2019. I thought that due to the scope clause that the American Eagle fleet could not exceed 75% of the mainline narrow body...

Re: Update on AA MD-80 Retirement

The latest fleet plan released last week shows that 45 MD80s will be in the fleet at year-end. The 2018 fleet plan should be released in January. Click on IR Update - October 10, 2017 and the .pdf will launch. The fleet plan is on page 4. http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=117098&p=irol...

Re: OAG Changes 10/15/2017: AA Adds ORD-RAP; AM Drops ONT-GDL; ; EY LAX Less Than Daily; More SJU/STT/SXM Cuts

Lots of AA frequency cuts for January and February across the board. I realize these are seasonal drawdowns, but given that we are in mid-October, is there anything unusual about them? Does AA see a general softening of demand for that time period? I wonder if the AA frequency reductions are relate...

Re: American Eagle's plan for the future.

According to the AA fleet plan on page 4 linked below, AA will have 8 fewer active RJs at the end of 2017 than the beginning of 2017. In Q1 2018, AA will lose even more RJs from Air Wisconsin. As noted earlier in the thread, the rumor is that Piedmont will retire the 15 remaining Dash 8's after the ...

Re: The future of 50 seat RJs

Bombardier announced earnings on Friday and there were no CRJ orders during the second quarter. The CRJ order book is down to 47 planes and at current production rates, there will be 0 orders left at the end of 2018. http://www.bombardier.com/content/dam/Websites/bombardiercom/supporting-documents/B...

Re: AA Expansion at CLT

Yes, CLT will have more gates when the A concourse north is complete, but that is only part of the equation needed for expansion. They also need planes and pilots. With Air Wisconsin taking 65 CRJ2s from AA to UA in the next six months and the likelihood that Piedmont will retire its remaining DH8-3...

Re: The Future of the CRJ

I might be in the minority, but I expect BBD to wind down production of the CRJ in late 2018 or early 2019. The order book has been steadily declining and there are only 54 orders left including an order for 9 CRJ7s that has been on the books for a few years. At the current production rate, there wi...

Re: Remaining AA and UA Dash-8 100/200/300

According to this wikipedia link Piedmont is down to 10 DH1s which is pretty close to the revised fleet plan which shows 12 DH1s at the end of the second quarter. There will only be 4 DH1s by the end of the year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piedmont_Airlines#Fleet AA revised their 2017 fleet plan ...

Re: Envoy E140/145 Retirements?

Piedmont Airlines announced an expansion of their E-145 fleet and will be retiring their entire Dash-8 fleet so it is reasonable to assume that many of the E-145s will be coming from Envoy. http://aviationtribune.com/airlines/nor ... jet-fleet/ http://salisburyindependent.net/wicomic ... jet-fleet/ ...

Re: Replacement Dash-8 For Piedmont

So does this mean an end of commercial air service at Hilton Head? Well it is going to take up to 4 years for all the Dash-8s to be replaced by E-145s, so I doubt there will be immediate changes, but it will be interesting to see if switching to E-145s causes some destinations to see reduced freque...
