It that is true, why doesn't DL staff them from another regional? Endeavor?
Seems there's two possibilities:
1) Other regionals can't staff it or don't have a plane (CRJ-200s are dirt cheap so why doesn't Endeavor step up?)
2) They're actually underperforming routes DL doesn't want to keep
Because there are finite number of CR2s in the fleet for DCI and a majority are at OO? Sure they may be underperforming, but OO staffing and performance improving because they’re losing flying has to help
Yes, the DCI fleet is limited to 125 50 seat aircraft. But you don’t think there’s a way for Delta to reallocate some of those aircraft if the airline isn’t able to fulfill the contract and fly all their planes?
