ZW's contract with AAG expires Feb. 2018. After that ZW was effectively done...left alone on the dance floor with nobody to dance with. This agreement moves ZW's entire fleet (well, 50 with options for 15...so you can do the math there. I'd imagine the extra one will be parked or used for spares.) to UAL beginning "Early 2018." See how this is matching up here?

So ZW won't be flying for American Eagle anymore after that, only for United Express, or so it seems.

This is overall great news. But living 5 years at a time is stressful... Not to mention moving around.. I would use it as 5 years to move on. Those 200's aren't getting younger..

Pretty sure that's very illegal. Kirby isn't that dumb.

Actually, regarding United: If they add another narrow-body mainline, I think there's a clause that they can add more 70-seaters to the regional feed.

They haven't released their full newly revised fleet plan yet...but remember that their 737-700 order was upscaled and deferred to Max8s...

Wouldn't be surprised to see C-Series added mainline at UAL, and more 70-seaters as well.

United won't see a 737 Max for 3 years. American owns every delivery slot over that time.
