What is eye opening about United? Their metrics are on par with Delta and US Airways. Now American Eagle numbers are an absolute eye opener. The numbers show AMR is at a huge economic disadvantage to all other legacy carriers. 2.35 mainline to regional, 94% of flying done by Eagle, 50 CR700s and the rest of regional fleet 50 seaters? There is no way AMR can compete. In many markets AMR has to choose to send an E145 or a MD80 up against a CRJ700/900/EMB170/175. Big changes coming ahead for the American Eagle regional system

To the author of this site, well done sir! Bravo!
