So if Envoy is still transferring 145s to Piedmont, why are the TSA 145s going to Envoy next April? Will Piedmont be done taking 145s?

To my understanding, AA is dumping all CRJ-200 flying yet moving E145 to PI, both a/c with a capacity of 50 pax. High CASM is typically mentioned as a reason for the elimination of the CRJ-200s and 50 seat flying in general, so my question is, are E145s less expensive to operate? I don't think they are more comfortable by any means.

I believe most of the E145s are owned so their capital cost is basically nothing.

I think you have the right idea. High CASM definitely is contributing to the shift at AA and all airlines towards larger aircraft, although I don't think the E45 is in particular any more or less expensive than a CRJ-200. No matter who owns the aircraft, they are old enough in age that ownership costs are negligible. The only non-owned ones left are at OO, I think, and I think some of those may be flown pro-rate.

Now that Air Wisconsin flying is gone, there are still CRJ-200s at PSA and Skywest. Some of the OO CRJ-200s are flown to EAS markets so I think some of those jets will be around for awhile, but will be displaced by some of the ExpressJet CRJ-700s coming to fly for American at OO. Some of those CRJ-700s at EV are getting new cabins installed as we speak in the 9/56 config which qualifies it as a small regional jet.

In the order announced last week for the PSA CRJ-900s, it was noted that those larger regional jets would displace some 50-seat jets. I don't know if all of the PSA CR2s will be parked but I imagine as those new jets are delivered they will be.

So here's a quick rundown of what I understand to be the case:
Piedmont is transitioning to be the 50-seat operator with the ex-Envoy E45s. They are positioned to take up more and could probably pretty easily take 140s if necessary, flying regional routes mostly out of PHL but also through CLT.
PSA continues to be a strong regional provider in CLT & PHL and potentially takes on more NE flying in DC and NYC with CRJ equipment.
Envoy continues to be the primary regional lift in DFW and ORD with Embraer equipment: 175s, 145s, and 140s and also expanding in their MIA base and potentially reopening the LAX base.
Wholly-owned regionals will make up the bulk of regional flying and each hub will have a wholly owned regional carrier with the bulk of the flying, optimizing spare availability and redundancy.

Skywest will fly primarily CRJ-700s in PHX LAX, and ORD, as they do today, potentially with some CRJ-200s remaining in ORD. I almost guarantee the EV CR7s end up at OO the same way the EV CR2s did.
Mesa is having staffing issues with the -900s in PHX and DFW but assuming they can continue to provide lift they will be part of the equation.
Republic has the bulk of E75 flying in the east coast, subject to staffing availability.
Compass - I think like many others that when their contact expires in 2020, those jets will go to Envoy.

3 owned + 3 non-owned seems like a good mix to me.

The majority of the EV birds are already in the 9F/56Y config and my guess is they will temporarily be used to backfill for when the existing 6F/64Y birds go in for re-config (or those 6F/64Y birds will go the way of the dodo).

The only part I think will change is OO being in DFW rather than ORD. The plan before was for PSA to open a crew base in ORD and staff the CR7s out of there. With the additional 900s for back east along with eventually getting all of the MQ 700s over there, I think OO will go back to its better performing side of the country as well as a new base in DFW to support the new CR7s. Its a key point to note, LAX & PHX are the two hubs without a wholly-owned and with Mesa being unable to support DFW, there isn't enough Envoy to go around to open an LAX base currently. Once the Compass contract is up, I think those birds may come back to Envoy but being able to flow those 20 planes though ORD and DFW makes a crew base almost unnecessary as the crews can change out in outstations. I'm also not sold on PSA retiring all of their CR2s as the fleet plan calls for 35 to remain which is more than just OO.

Robert Isom recently said the fleet plan is as follows;

PSA 150 airplanes
PDT 56 airplanes
ENY 200 airplanes

At the end of 2019 Envoy will be at 180 airplanes. 20 more airframes seems to hint than Compass is the next one out, especially based on his quote of “So we've got a great set of wholly owneds. I would really like to see us over the long run then combine that with a few carriers of critical mass, that meet standards in terms of quality.."

Envoy isn't having any staffing issues. There was potential for it, but it has been avoided. I am looking at the coverage now. The mothership adjusted the flying and Envoy is fine. With the new LOA that was agreed to last week, there will be captains sooner at Envoy (now 950 hours), it is mandatory to upgrade to flow, if you take LGA you get three months of business passes and unlimited commuter hotels, and captain pay from the moment of it being awarded. Envoy will handle whatever is thrown at them. Those 175's never should have been at Compass and were nothing but a message that was sent to the Eagle pilot group. Isom said they want regional partners of "sizeable mass" and that is not Compass for AA. 20 airplanes is not sizeable mass.

The 20 planes at compass were not ordered for Envoy. When AA placed the order they had no clue who was going to operate them, they could have come to republic if we weren't in our own staffing crisis at the time, after all we were the first Eagle 175 operator. Go read any news article on the order and you will see that. If compass is bought by Republic which is still rumored but having hit some snags, those planes will still be at a company with critical mass.

The only Airline that is forcing First officers or new hires that have the 1000 hours to upgrade is... you guessed it... Envoy and PSA (somewhat). If your too naive to see that is a staffing issue, well then enjoy this summer when you guys go into meltdown mode. Even with everything being offered, I would not lateral to Envoy, EVER.

Those airplanes were intended for MQ and were taken away because the pilots wouldn’t give into the demands by management. That’s an absolute fact. As for me, I don’t want to see them at Envoy. Every additional plane we have to crew is a reason for management to try and say that they can meter flow. As for Republic buying TSH, I’m sure it’s happening, and it goes to show just how BS their bankruptcy was and that needing to simply their fleet was bull. I suppose if you want to get technical, Republic isn’t buying anything, AA, DL, UA, and Embraer would be doing the buying.

Do you know what types of provisions are usually put in regional flying contracts which if breached could lead to termination of the contract? I'm guessing staffing would be one if Compass can't get pilots but need some enlightenment!

Also, will the EV planes coming on at OO be in addition to current fleet numbers or back filling the loss of the Air Wisconsin 200's?

There are a lot of provisions about failing to meet performance targets, whether it be controllable completion factor, D0, operational solvency (meaning there are enough operational planes available to cover the schedule for a set percentage of the time), or crew availability. There are also soft metrics like cabin appearance and customer satisfaction/complaints. I've never see contracts revoked though for failure to meet soft targets or controllable completion factor, usually only plane/crew availability.

The EV planes are a net zero gain, they are just going from one side of the certificate to the other. There are 20+ additional CR7s available that are coming off the DL contract in ATL that haven't been accounted for that would/could be growth but that would require AA to retire some other CR2s/ER4s in order to make room in scope.

Saw that, thanks. Probably a spare at this point in the draw down. A little over two weeks left for the mighty DH3 at Piedmont if they stick to the schedule.

Please enlighten me. What does this mean?


Delta, United, and American all own a piece of Republic.


I have read in the past of AA owning some of Republic but nothing about DL & UA. Everything is hearsay since Republic is not public at the moment.

Its not "hearsay" - go look at the bankruptcy reorganization of Republic, which is public. Moreover, the airlines report their ownership of Republic, publicly.

P.S., thats the wrong use of "hearsay".

Now that the dust has settled somewhat, it appears that PSA has taken over HVN service out of PHL 3 x daily with a CR2, and HXD will switch to Republic 3 x daily on an E75 out of CLT on July 4th. The last Piedmont DH3 to HXD is currently scheduled for July 3rd.

Collectively AA, DL and UA own roughly 65% of Republic, with AA have the largest share in the high 20% range, followed by UA and then DL.

Piedmont doesn't have the mx resources right now. Envoy will clean them up, do all the heavy mx and standardize them.

Saw my first AE CRJ-900 at ORD the other day. Thought these didn't fly into ORD. Has AE started to shift some CRJ9s to Chicago finally?

There are currently not any CR9s scheduled for ORD. If there was one there, either PSA ran a sub for an OOS CR7 or it was a diversion from a Midwest city,

ALL EV birds are in the 9F/56Y config.

And if I had to guess what things will look like in a year these would be my predictions:

Compass will indeed lose the 175s to Envoy - it's already rumored and expected. But, rather than add an MQ base to LAX, watch for YV to shift CR9s there as they get bumped out of DFW and consolidate to LAX with about 20 planes, to backfill the 175, and the rest in PHX.

DFW would then be a clean MQ 175 / 145 and OO 700 base

That would indeed make the 7 carriers predicted - with the end of Compass for Eagle, and put Mesa on notice that they are next ... or else. From there, it's a race, can PSA grow into either ORD or MIA fast enough to free Envoy to go West?

Interesting observation. I agree that there's a high likelihood of both Compass losing their birds to Envoy and Mesa moving to LAX. But I'm not sure Mesa will lose their flying or "free" Envoy to move West. I'd like to see PSA grow to backfill the lost TSA flying in DCA and maybe even some Envoy flying at LGA/JFK. But PSA displacing Envoy at MIA or especially ORD does not make sense. Envoy has decades of history and thousands of employees who live and work in Chicago. Changing that would be counterproductive.

And while Mesa may not have a sterling reputation in the business, they are a reliable operator and are able to do so cheaply do to their payscales.

In a shocking change of geography, I wonder if PSA would ever take those CR9's from YV in LAX/PHX?

Mesa is an unreliable carrier because of their pilot payscales...

Envoy will more than likely take the DCA flying. It was recently announced that PSA would be parking some of the 200’s. Additionally yesterday in an internal email Envoy pilots were told that the 12 remaining CR7’s would be staying at Envoy until 2020. Looks like PSA is still having trouble delivering on their promises.
