MEA-707 wrote:It's an interesting discussion how to define an airline. I'd say an own fleet, branding and identity would be necessairy. But in this case, on the morning flight you'd get on a SAS aircraft with SAS branded cookies and coffee and on the evening flight a Maersk one so I'd say it's not a real airline.
I am even not sure how serious we have to see these American regional airlines as having an own identity. Republic Airways and Skywest fly for all major airlines, but people boarding see the mainline colours (United, Delta, American, Alaska) on the airplane. Also these fleets and crew swap around all the time. A certain Embraer 170 has been registered to Midatlantic Airways, Shuttle America and Republic Airways but always flying for United Express. Reswapping the fleets is sometimes just to trick costs, taxes and unions. Can we still see these as proper airlines even while noone thinks, tomorrow I chose to take a flight on Republic Airways ?
