no you are thinking of US. US sold its commuter slots at DCA to YX but I think US bought them back not that long ago.

He's talking about the DL flights to MSN and OMA. They are old F9 routes that Republic moved to the DL operation when F9 was divested. They are in Republic's name.

You are correct that the actual slots RAH owned were sold to US during the F9 era in order to get quick cash back into the company.

RAH and Delta reach agreement to restructure their codeshare relationship.

All 50-seater flying will be wound down, with 30 E170/175 flying remaining subject to higher rates. They also settled litigation between the companies.

Delta also will provide $75mil financing to RAH as part of its restructuring.

Thanks for the update on RAH! That is one key issue resolved then. Republic was caught way off guard when they decided to keep the 50 seaters longer.

Debtor in possession financing. You gotta wonder how well that will go over with UA and AA. Delta also provided DIP financing to a little airline once known as Pinnacle. Could Delta's move be designed to end up in control of Republic and to force AA and UA to find someone new to fly the planes Republic flies for them now?

Probably not. If they are over staffed it isn't going to be for long. Also I believe they generally had 15-18 E45s flying somewhat consistently. I believe they are still taking 175s for both UA and AA so they will need the bodies.

my money is on two things
DL trying to buy RH and hurt AA/UA (which would be interesting because I think RH owns most of its own planes.) Or maybe DL, since it is in the MRO, ground handling, Private jet, vacation etc. etc. business maybe by RH and operate for UA/AA anyways. (highly unlikely IMO)

or they are trying to get the C-series order. Interesting things going to be happening in the DL fleet over the next few months.....

As I recall they had 6 175s for UA and 9 or so for AA that weren't staffed already so the E145 bodies will fill this gap.

Possible, but unlikely to really put a huge dent in UA or AA.

AA owns a couple of regional partners and already has them flying the E175, so their only big challenge would be if their regionals have the pilots. They'd work something out... or speed up their plans for the 100-seat aircraft, be it the E190/195 E2 or C-Series.

While UA, unlike AA and DL, doesn't own any regional carriers, they do have good relations with Skywest/ExpressJet and they're the only airline that's been willing to give Trans States more flying of late. They could find someone to fly a few more E175s and E170s for them if they needed to. Or they actually order the 100-seat jet that they've put off somewhat with the recent deal on 737s.

Not at all. The pilots from the 145 operation will simply allow them to staff the E-Jets that are sitting around on the ramp in IND/CMH/PIT/MCI doing nothing. They'll also still be hiring full-force for the foreseeable future.

Still taking 175s for UA at a very slow trickle. AA deliveries have been completed for quite some time, though.

Something creative's going to have to happen, then. Much larger fleets for UA and AA at Republic than those 30 EJets for Delta, I don't think Mesa, Skywest, etc. can simply absorb all those frames at a moment's notice.

Maybe DL acquires the S5 certificate and merges it with Endeavor or something like that, Republic Airlines remains independent and continues to fly for AA and UA?

No.

Per DIP court documents, its a simple 5.75% plus 1% upfront fee, up-to 1-year term loan, due at BK exit unless RJET assets were to be largely acquired by someone, then the loan would be due immediately as part of the transaction.

For security, DL gets liens on 1 E170 aircraft and 12 engines, plus some other unencumbered assets.

If you go off Wiki numbers, 4.

My guess is it's probably somewhere between 5-15. Either way, they are almost at their 70/76 seat cap.

Wont happen. IF DL ends up getting a certificate from YX they would likely keep one EMB operating and one BBD operating. Makes it a little easier plus they can play labor off each other to keep costs down.

it wouldn't matter tho. DL would probably park the planes they dont want (wouldn't shock me to see some CR7/CR9s parked for more e-jets) and sell them. It would just give them a quick way to screw AA/UA.

Per company news last remaining 2 Q400's were parked last week. Also the 50-seater ERJ flying is now planned to end in September for DL.

Also sounds like good portion of the E170 fleet likely will be rejected in BK, in order to become an all E175 airline.

I have been trying to follow the BK but the website for the BK is not that great for trying to decipher what documents actually have something worth reading in them based off of their little description, so I sort of gave up.

Doesn't rejecting the E170s hurt mostly Delta? I thought the deal was that they were being replaced in United service by 175s and as they were they went to the paint shop, got a little interior spiffing up and then went to the Delta contract. I cannot imagine that Mama Delta would be terribly happy about losing the lift of the 145s, -and- the 170s at the same time. The whole point of the lawsuits was that Republic had turned their backs on one of their first partners (Delta) to go courting new business, right? And here Delta is holding the trump (no pun) card of debtor in possession finance.

What is the card that has yet to drop?

Oh - and don't forget folks, it isn't just Endeavor that is scrambling to ready CRJ200s to take up that slack for Republic's failure to fly their commitments - ExpressJet has been and continues to pull its fleet out of the desert as well to make up the holes left by the 145s.

This makes a little more sense, than dropping the entire e170 fleet. Sounds like Republic stretched themselves way thinner than I thought. I thoughts parking the e145s would have alleviated their problems put now having to park some e170s as well... ouch.

Who has the staffing take on additional e170 flying? Or could we see these jets swallowed up my wholly owned operation?

There is absolutely no talk of rejecting any E70s except the 23 AA E70s, most of which are parked now and have been parked for months (drive by RAH hangars and IND, CMH, PIT, etc. and you'll get the drift). The UA and DL birds aren't part of that.

Technically, that arrangement hasn't been formally cancelled, but I certainly haven't seen any concrete plans to put them in place.

All of RAH's aircraft are in RAH's name. They don't have any arrangements where they operate aircraft owned/held by their mainline partners. AA did essentially "cosign" on the 47 LAA 175s, but they're still in RAH's name. None of the others are even that close.

Not at all. The E70s currently in the DL operation came from the Midwest/F9 operation, not UA. As for UA, The E75s coming in are essentially replacing capacity removed via the Q400 drawdown. No UA E70s are leaving the fleet. They are simply being transferred at a rate of about 3 per month from UA-S5 to UA-YX.

I see the E70s for DL have 69 seats...do these count in the larger jet (I understand 70-76 seat) limitation?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't there essentially 3 buckets for DL RJs? I think there's the 50-seat category, then a middle category for the 65/69 seaters, and then the largest category for the 76 seaters. And I think each one has its own allotment.

There is absolutely no talk of rejecting any E70s except the 23 AA E70s, most of which are parked now and have been parked for months (drive by RAH hangars and IND, CMH, PIT, etc. and you'll get the drift). The UA and DL birds aren't part of that.

contract expired or chptr 11 backdoor?

They're sitting because staffing isn't sufficient to fly them. They're still on contract. If/when they leave the fleet, it will either be through a negotiated drawdown and return-to-lessor agreement (would have to happen awfully quickly and is unlikely IMO). Otherwise (and more likely IMO) RAH will request to reject the aircraft in BK court.

Latest note from company says they have achieved agreement with all ERJ debt holders and lessors which will allow the orderly return of the entire ERJ portfolio.

They also reach settlement with "significant" number Ejet financiers and working to close out agreements over the weekend for the remainder in order to present them to the court before the 60-day time clock expires next week.

I guess one of the last issues left is figuring out financing for 24 E175 aircraft scheduled to be delivery this year. With Ch.11, entry into new agreements to finance the aircraft is difficult.

I suspect we will also see Bedford taking a walk from the airline soon. His bipolar airline tactics have really played a major role in what we see today. He has made so many drastic changes, it is finally showing the ultimate results. His fiasco disaster with Frontier and Midwest are classic examples of terrible execution. He has bitten off more than he could chew a few too many times.

I wish RAH the best, and I really hope in the end, changes are made starting at the top.

He should have departed the airline a long time ago. It is time RJET gets a new captain at the helm.

All of RAH's aircraft are in RAH's name. They don't have any arrangements where they operate aircraft owned/held by their mainline partners. AA did essentially "cosign" on the 47 LAA 175s, but they're still in RAH's name. None of the others are even that close.

From what I have read elsewhere, these 170's are going to be ex-MidAtlantic E170's which were operated by USAir itself prior to being "sold" to republic. So they would be from the 2004-2006 time frame of deliveries and are among the oldest Ejets in existence.

I have seen these being referred to as leased aircraft however. So they were either leased from a third party or they are trying to reject the financing on them from when they bought them 10 years ago.

If you look on flightaware, there is a mass movement of Republic 170s scheduled to KRME today.

So 2004-2006 time frame is only 10-12 years old. Do they still have a good decade + available to them? Or are regional jets time frame less than mainline jets?

I would say Regionals are less since they theoretically should be doing frequent shorter hops compared to Mainline aircraft.

However, these are 170's. The 170's are not nearly as economical to operate compared to 175's as the 175's have been improved fairly decently in the last few years with aerodynamic improvements such as the new winglets and I believe some other changes... But the 175 also seats 6 more people.

As a YX LGA flight attendant, I can confirm the YX 170 drawback started a week ago, our schedules for next month are nearly all 76 and 80 seat operations for AA out of LGA with a sprinkle of 69 seaters. These 69 seaters that are being retired are old Midwest birds - it is time for them to go - they have seen better days.

You know, if the company actually took care of them, they might not look the way they do. I'll bet the end up flying for some other carrier down the road and don't look nearly as bad as they do now.

That said, with the YX 170's going away and the scheduled wind down of the S5 145 operation now (which will mean a simplification of the Delta Connection system, in terms of fleet types) is the company even able to properly staff what they have left flying?
