Are the -200s just stored or are they finished?
I believe they are finished, unless the plans have changed recently, as the plan was to retire them in favor of the 700's and 900's.
Or E170’s... Up until the COVID stuff started, Management at Republic finally said the first new 175s would be delivered in Q2 2021. It was expected the announcement on the exact fleet shakedown was going to happen this summer...
It doesn’t make sense to me to go through with the capital expenditure of the new DCA terminal just to run CRJ2s out of it. I think you will see DCA go more premium heavy with E170/175’s from Republic and then CRJ7/9’s from PSA to supplement. Republic I think will get the premium routes while the CRj’s will be flown to the smaller communities that either don’t have the infrastructure or the yields for Ejets.
