I've seen that 17 aircrafts had been ferried to Rome. Not sure where the three others (N805MD, N809MD and N814MD) are. Any idea?

N805MD still flying. Today doing PHL-CMH
N809MD. Flew LGA-CMH 2 days ago
N814MD. Flew PHl-PIT 2 days ago.
Maybe they are setting them up for storage there?

If you go through court documents you will see that these are financed through different parties, not GECAS.

So on the AA side, have there been a lot of cancellations at Eagle owing to the withdrawal of these aircraft? These birds probably flew 6 segments a day which is a lot of turns.

Not really, I am based in LGA. A lot of our operations were 170 flying but literally within the last week it has all gone to 175 76 and 80 seaters. Which truthfully has been blessing, newer birds, more first class seats etc.

The 175s have 8 and the 170s had 9. At least every one that I flew on...

Is there a new version that has 12?

Correction:

Legacy US 170: 9F 60Y
Legacy US 175: 8F 72Y
Legacy AA 175: 12F 64Y *these are the newest birds

Contracts are being worked out to see if the legacy US 175's are kept in the same configuration or if retrofitted to the new AA 175 configuration which is more premium heavy.

Court approved revised agreement with Delta yesterday.

Highlights include:

o A consensual wind-down of single-class 50-seat flying agreement
o Full settlement of litigation and related claims between Delta and Republic
o Affirmation of dual-class flying agreement for 30 E170 and E175 aircraft
o Increased reimbursement rates in the single- and dual-class agreements that reflect the true cost of flying
o Compensation for certain slots in LGA and DCA
o Incremental liquidity in the form of a $75 million Debtor-in-Possession (DIP) loan

A very important highlight is that Republic also granted Delta an unsecured pre-petition claim of $170 million, which will give them considerable sway over the reorganization as one of the company's largest unsecured creditors. Shades of the game RAH played with its unsecured claim against Frontier...

Is there anything in the mainline pilot contract that would prevent Delta from owning a second regional? What about Endeavor's ALPA contract? The 9E pilots get guaranteed mainline interviews, right? I'm not sure they'd want another regional pilot group getting the same.

No words on RAH CS300 order? Anyone knows if it is considered an asset (discounted price as launch customer, some down payment already paid) or a liability?

If you think United and American would sit idly by and let Delta buy up a carrier that flies both more for AA and UA, you're out of your mind.

AA and UA sat idly by when DL proposed providing DIP financing. Neither carrier made a counteroffer to the court, did they? AA and UA and in the back of coach on this one right now. RAH can reject the agreements with both carriers if they want. And if their DIP financing provider tells them to reject the agreements, there's not a lot RAH can do. And if you don't think DL would use this opportunity to park a significant number of their competitors regional fleet....

Delta has no interest in RAH besides seeing it to health.

There recently was an internal news story about rumors DL might want to acquire RAH and it was made clear by the DL VP they see RAH as a solid partner and want see them remain as an independent operator.
Additionally it was pointed out there are large differences between the RAH and Pinnacle BK's, and just by sponsoring DIP financing does not mean DL has intentions of buying RAH. Matter of fact DL is not even taking part in the development of RAH POR (Plan of Reorganization).

Of course they will object. The Ad Hoc Equity Committee (AHEC) has been objecting since day one, and will remain opposed to anything the company likely proposes. This a small group of equity holders of Republic stock which will largely be wiped out so they instead seek priority claims.

What really matters is that the Unsecured Creditor Committee (UCC), the Federal government trustee and company are all on the same page and agree that the motions are for the benefit of the enterprise and puts its on the way to successful exit from BK.

BK courts have wide discretion and generally give great benefit of doubt to the company involved, and this case the parties objecting are really nothing more than nuisance motions.

Not necessarily. It would depend on the pricing. BBD wasn't as "motivated" to discount heavily back then. I bet DL got a screaming deal if we could compare the 2 orders.

That make sense. Maybe this order is worth something depending on how much deposit was already made by RAH and how early the delivery slots are.

Federal district judge ruled against the AHEC holdouts and while they can continue appealing it will not prohibited RAH from proceeding forward adopting the Delta agreement.

Quoting toltommy (Reply 19):

Agreed. I was admittedly thinking purely on the value to BBD if RAH were to cancel the order -- they would offer to take the orders off of RAH's hands, but as you said if the price is contractually pegged higher than DL's deal perhaps that doesn't play out. But if there were cancellation penalties or such my thought was that the C-series order might be a useful asset in the bk proceedings, particularly given how little clarity there is about just how they could use them.

On track for single operating certificate by 12/1. Shuttle America will disappear into the history books. Kind of sad, but totally logical for RAH.

United and Republic have come to a tentative agreement! Two down, one to go.

Pretty much more money for all current flying with possible additional flying through extensions of current contracts and additional future E175 deliveries.

The E175s are the originally ordered but yet undelivered aircraft that RAH was saying they would have difficulty gaining financing for. They were originally scheduled to be delivered continuously over most of this year. Deliveries have been pushed back while RAH re-evaluated the situation in bankruptcy. The UA agreement will provide the company with "financing options" to get the aircraft back on a delivery path. Exciting news to see aircraft deliveries will begin again.

While retention and incentive bonus are common for executives and other key employees, lets see what creditors say and if they oppose the court filing.

Especially, given that RAH is already meeting or exceeding the prescribed targets. Hardly "incentive" unless the incentive is to retain and not to improve.

In late June the two heavy maintenance lines that are currently operating in CMH will be moved to our MRO providers. The maintenance that was being performed in MCI will be transferred to existing Republic maintenance facilities in SDF, PIT, CMH, and IND.

Not sure yet how to quote on the new site. But, to the poster above me, CMH will maintain the other functions outside heavy MX for the time being. There are, however, facilities issues about to rear their ugly heads (not related to the bankruptcy), so we will see how big it winds up being at the end of the day.
