I remember that flight well. Dada and I would go to the parking garage and take pictures and she always parked right up front. Great memories. Maybe TOL had some sort of incentive? I remember the QH and FL flights both used the airport, TW had axed their STL flight from TOL then, andif I am not mist...Jump to post
So would it be that OO shifts their UA CRJ 700s to G7 for conversion to CRJ 550s but then OO takes the G7 CRJ 700 and 900 flying from G7 and fly those for DL? That way G7 exits DL OO Takes G7 DL flying and UA gains the new 50 seaters? If there is no reduction in 50 seat flying at UA they are going t...Jump to post
So UA is going to launch the CRJ 550 with the CR7s. First 25 will come from G7 and the 2nd 25 will come from existing inventory. Wonder if these are Mesa CR7s or OO CR7s? Looks like G7 will be getting 25 from someone. Also, if this is to be 50 seat flying will it replace a current 50 seat capacity? ...Jump to post
It's called jetway rash. There's was a post about it before.
I think he is putting out a possibility for consolidation. I agree, there will be some consolidation given the up gauging to mainline an the pilot situation at the regionals. I think United has the most opportunity for consolidation, followed by American. Delta and American have announced or already...Jump to post
There has been a great deal of press about the majors up gauging and shuttering 50 seat flying. My question relates to what option a regional might have. Currently, under codesharing (or at least what it has become) is the major taking the risk and paying the regional for the flying in exchange for ...Jump to post
Now there is a top off order for more A220s at DL. This seems to fit with the strategy as expressed on their presentation and in the video (thanks of the link). When looking at the ownership of the regionals, I think it shows it is going to be an active 12-24 months in this space (continuing to be a...Jump to post
Another facet to the regional picture is that DL mentioned (I can't find the presser) that their regional seat departures would decline from the current 27% of total seat departures (mainline and connection) to 20% by 2023. That seems to make sense with the Mad Dog retirement/replacement, addition ...Jump to post
I think this year we are going to see some interesting moves in this space. As a side and pure speculation is the Compass advertising PHX on their website. I wonder if it is possible that there is a play with Mesa and Compass? It is an interesting year for the regionals.Jump to post
OK, I am gonna go with Allegiant (Announcing on Tuesday) with MYR, SFB and CVG. Existing carrier, announcing on Tuesday two new cities (not sure if AA did MYR back in the day of the BNA hub) and taking advantage of DL exiting CVG. Will love to see tomorrow.Jump to post
Updated with PSA seat Count and missing 109 Endeavor CR9s I thought we could start a thread on the big three regionals for 2019. I am not sure why they don't have a thread since they have over 1600 planes and make up about 25% of domestic U.S. flights... Here was the last update in December. UPDATED...Jump to post
How are AA's ERJs 1-class, yet UA's are 2-class? Both have similar seating arrangements. (Both sell exit row as Y+. UA sells bulkhead as Y+, AA does not.) Looks like the listing is incorrect. They are listed as being 50 seats in Y only. These seem to be mostly the ERJ and ER4s at Endeavor. Not sure...Jump to post
Under 9E I think you forgot 109 CR9 DL 76 seat 3 class. Very good summary, although these numbers change regularly, especially on the AA side; lots of airframe shuffling among the AA wholly-owneds right now. Also, DL is in the process of consolidating its regional feed, and UA has some changes on t...Jump to post

Thanks for the additional link. Given that there are discrepancies in many locations, I am just going with the November data. There are some interesting things in here. I have compiled the data for the large 4 carriers with aligned regionals, other smaller non-aligned regional data is not included. ...Jump to post
Having researched via airfields/planespotters/wiki/ and the airline websites themselves, some discrepancies in who is flying what for whom have come up. I have compiled here a list of what is "current" as of November 2018, but I know there are discrepancies. Here is the list I could develo...Jump to post
The longest serving with original name is now OO, which started Western Express service in 1985.Jump to post
But ASA- Atlantic Southeast Airlines really has been gone for a long time now. Hey just became part of some other anonymous regional. Actually, ASA bought Express Jet to become the world's largest regional at the time. In addition, they changed their name to ExpressJet and still operate under ASA's...Jump to post
It looks like a combination of Skywest and Endeavor is replacing them.Jump to post
As EV ends flying for DL, all of the original DLC carriers have faded from DL service. EV was the original DLC out of Atlanta in 1984, 34 years running. Ransome in the Northeast, Rio in DFW (eventually replaced by EV) and OH out of CVG. All of these relationships have faded into the past. The origin...Jump to post
Since two posters are concerned and assumed there was no research done, perhaps they should look and see that it has been done is has several discrepancies which prompted the question to begin with.

Thank you for those that want to contribute to the discussion. Thanks for the planespooter link, which I used. I then crossed referenced with airlines websites. The only issue is with regionals that fly for multiple partners and there is no breakdown of who gets what, i.e.gojet. I know TSA is being ...Jump to post
It seems that all the new deliveries of airlines are below wing engines, with the exception of ATRs, DH-8s and any of the CRJs, I was wondering, who has the largest T-Tail fleets? From a U.S. perspective, I assume Delta would be the largest with the 717s leased from WN and the MD90s/88s. From a regi...Jump to post

Here's a cool video of all three at LAX at the same time. Coming and going:

Could it be either Cal Jet to Carlsbad and Las Vegas? Boutique or jet suite x ? Interesting that the manager of the destination airport is going to be there, suggesting it might not be a largely served airport? As for the traditional, Maybe DL to SLC or LAS for at will flying by OO ?Jump to post
How many Boeing customers are there that are buying Bombardiers and how many Airbus are buying Embraer? I was thinking, I wonder how much opportunity there is to open the door... for example, a long time Airbus only who also has Embraers will be, in fact in with the JV between Boeing and Embraer.

I think looking at the current Focus Cities will give indication of what type of operation DL might build in Austin. It won't be a mini-hub, but it will be a focus. For example, take RDU (for some reason RDU always interests me, not sure why). It is a focus city and has p2p routes. The volume of rou...Jump to post
umm, NO on the blue = premium. I guess that's why Ryanair, JetBlue, Southwest, etc. all use Blue. I mean, look at Ryanair, the same colors as LH. I guess the low cost airlines are trying to trick us into thinking they are premium. Whoever paid this guy to say that should look at the airlines around ...Jump to post
In the 80s the codeshare business was booming. All the majors were signing up commuters to feed their flights, and the regionals followed after ( with the exception of Allegheny/USAir which had started earlier than anyone). Even Air Florida had a hot of commuters lined up. In the shakeout that happe...Jump to post
Seeing Silver's recent announcements about HSV-MCO and BKG-MSY/IAH/ORD made me question, why is there no BKG-BNA service? since BKG has AUS and BNA has long been "music city" Why is there no NS service between the two?

I was wondering why AA does not serve ECP?
Both UA and DL serve both VPS and ECP ( Together with others including a big Allegiant presence at VPS) and only WN at ECP.
Why does AA nor serve both as the others do?

What carrier was the largest 757 carrier in Asia and when?
What were the specific benefits or hurdles to operating the type? Just interested to know what was behind the decision either to operate the type or not operate it and what carriers opted for instead.
