So they’re taking aircraft that will most likely sit around and do nothing, but in the mean time pilots will get cut...makes perfect sense.

The 550s will not sit around and do nothing. Look around at what's flying. The 50 seaters will have their place despite the rumblings they won't.

Secondly, ZWs history is far from reactive....

Until the Big Three complete their COVID-driven downsizing and fleet type streamlining nobody knows what will happen at any regional except perhaps at Horizon. Because except for Horizon, the scope limitations for their regional flying may well be changed by the nature of the downsizing at mainline. For that matter, the downsizing at one of the OTHER mainlines might free up pilots and RJs to compete for the same business.

I think anyone but the most senior pilots at Horizon, Skywest, and Republic might be at risk of at least short term furlough if not the disappearance of their regional altogether as happened with Compass and TSA.
