The first 3 Envoy E170s have been registered as N760MQ, N761RW, and N762DT. Random. Envoy likes to name aircraft for company executives, MQ is the IATA code for Envoy, RW is Ric Wilson, VP of Flight Operations, and DT is Dee Temples, SVP of Air Operations. Why they chose to start at 760 is a myster...Jump to post
In January, and I think still, MESA is operating 5 900s on a temporary contract that could be terminated with little notice. Add to that that during 2021 AA has the right to reduce their contract by 10 of the 40 aircraft in the just signed contract with YV, a full 25%, followed by only 5 a year in ...Jump to post
From the Indianapolis Airport Authority press release (source: https://www.ind.com/about/media/media-releases/indy-airport-announces-new-nonstop-flight-to-austin ), IND-AUS starts once daily from September 8th, then goes double daily on October 2nd.

First the VTOL aircraft (to be operated by Mesa, ha...) and now this. United’s publicity stunts are getting tiresome.Jump to post
I’ll make an easy bet for easy money: this won’t happen.Jump to post

Yes. A fun, but brief, time to see 1900s in the then-new Delta livery from 2007:

Back to the original topic, the fact of the matter is that the FAA didn’t warn all regionals in general. They specifically warned Envoy which indicates there is an undeniable issue with the safety culture within that airline. Wonder how much AA actually cares to make significant changes.

I said it before, I don’t understand why Silver isn’t in SRQ, which would match more of their premium pricing compared to TPAs. And I have heard in the past that the name Silver is after all the silver hair in the state? Lol. It made sense to change the colors as more younger people moved into the ...Jump to post
I wouldn’t say this is special to Envoy. Flying a OO flight from DEN-ELP, the pilots lined up to land on the smaller/shorter 26R runway, and came quite close to doing so before tower told them they weren’t landing on the proper runway. I pulled the recording from LiveATC just to be sure. Pilots als...Jump to post
Macon, Georgia? **crickets** Contour’s Macon-BWI trips have done surprisingly well, pre-COVID, with summer monthly load factors well above 90%, which means numerous sellouts. I imagine that there is a market for less-than-daily Florida service there, as well, just not for an A320. Given the populat...Jump to post
Envoy has gone off multiple runways in the last couple years, so I’m not the least bit surprised.Jump to post
I felt so bad that the Breeze discussion wasn’t on the first page where it *needs* to be, that I mused aloud whether all this talk about SDF being one of the opening stations was just all that. Talk. I have feeling many of you will be disappointed when Breeze reveals its initial network, which will...Jump to post
Just recently flew a “new” 65-seat 170. I was going to take and post pictures, but honestly, besides for the new airplane smell, not much looks different. The staggered seats aren’t nearly as noticeable as I was expecting. And as previously mentioned, there are 66 physical seats, with only 65 usable...Jump to post
I heard about this story on the radio in Kansas City. Apparently a few of the nurses that helped out were from KC. Radio said they used shoe string to cut the umbilical cord and an Apple Watch to monitor the baby’s heart rate.Jump to post
Good morning, Before MDW was renovated, there used to be a Chicago Cubs-themed gate/passenger waiting area when the terminal was ground-level. I remember flying out of this specific gate when I was a child. Would anyone have pictures of this gate by any chance? It would bring back great memories. Th...Jump to post
It’s finally happening! B6 announces MCI with service to both BOS & JFK starting 2Q 2022. I’ve been waiting for this day since 2003 when B6 first publicly announced interest in servicing MCI.

How is the new construction coming along? Can’t wait for the new look I don’t know where they’re at specifically on the timeline, but I can tell you the terminal definitely makes a statement driving up. It’s going to be absolutely beautiful with the glass jet bridges. The new terminal isn’t going t...Jump to post
I caught N821MD this evening here at IND. Is this the first of Republic's 65-seat E170s to enter service? It looks like she was at AMA for a little over a week, and spent about three weeks on the ground at SDF before that. She flew AMA-CLT-BGR on Thursday, and has bounced around between ORD, LGA, a...Jump to post
Now AA knows what a focus city is! Good luck to Delta in AUS with their non-focus city focus cityJump to post
Interesting... the seatmap and galley schematic that was created in the system for the config was loaded with 9F/56Y so perhaps it just hasn't been updated yet as the last row shows as 17 just like a CR7, not 20/21. I'm assuming they are going 12F in the hopes that business demand in the NE returns...Jump to post
9F/56Y so the first five or six rows of Y will be MCE. Your information is inaccurate and incorrect. YX just released the 65-seat 170 configuration yesterday and the layout is as follows. I would assume the layout will be standard across YX and MQ, but I can only speak for the YX birds at the momen...Jump to post
Does anyone know how the 170s are going to be configured with 65 seats? Are they going to keep them at 9 F seats and just take out a row of Y seats? If so, that should make at least half of the Y cabin as MCE seating. 9F/56Y so the first five or six rows of Y will be MCE. Your information is inaccu...Jump to post
Either way, I'm a little excited that MQ is getting the 170s. Hopefully that adds some flexibility to those EMB markets where a 175 might be a little too marginal, and there aren't enough CR7s to go around. YX will also be operating 170s for AA. Almost 3x as many as MQ. Of course, but I was being s...Jump to post
Realistically, AA does not need to have three wholly owned regional airlines and two wholly owned ground handlers. AA has done wholly-owned regional consolidation before - that's how we got American Eagle Airlines (MQ) in the first place. I think that market conditions are moving such that it could...Jump to post
AUS doesn’t even have any flights to a non-hub airport. Doesn’t seem much like a focus city to me. Just like any other outstation.Jump to post
How interesting that Envoy would hand off 6 new-build E175s to Republic then acquire 6 x 11 year old, 76 seat E170s from BA CityFlyer. Love to hear the back-story on that. I'm sure it's all scope related, but are we sure that this brings 6 MQ plus 6 YX E170s to AA? Would be good imo if true Being c...Jump to post
Delta has had LGA-MCI for a long time, would be a perfect A220 route. I see it as a 175 route. A220 is probably too large. Nah, the 220-100 is probably perfect for it. I believe it is more cost effective as well. WN was able to fill a 73G, DL should be able to fill a small mainline aircraft and its...Jump to post

DL closing down the planned routes out of MIA might have something to do with YX closing their crew base. The majority of those routes were set to be operated by YX, but their crew base in MIA closes April 1st, with all operations set to end in the few months after. Would be very difficult to route ...Jump to post
Can’t think of a more perfect replacement for Air Cargo Carriers than this.
Also, for those in the know, is this replacing the Caravan at FedEx?
Republic apparently has 22 DL E170s and it was reported that Republic is shifting 22 jets to AA. Same jets? Or, some other combo of YX jets? Yes, same jets. YX is shifting 22 DL 170s to a 65-seat layout for AA. So losing 22 DL-colored birds but gaining 22 for AA. Net gain/loss of zero. Technically,...Jump to post
