321 NB aircraft NG/MAX
80 170’s
3850 pilot seniority in 2025
If the the economy holds, if not there is flexibility to swap out some 737NG’s for Max’s.

All Airbus and positions have buyers
Further clarification please. The 80 170s is for the regional side? What is that compared to the number currently flying under the Alaska colors? Also is it 170s, 175s, or 190s? Does their plan factor in that scope is the #1 priority of the pilot group?

I just want to say thank you for showing up from time to time on this board and laying down some information. You have never been wrong, on things that can be controlled. Your inside info is always spot on and I for one appreciate it. It is nice to get a look behind the curtain, a glance at the crystal ball.
I'm glad that you ignore these kids who throw a hissy fit when you tell them something they don't want to hear. I appreciate you telling the truth regardless of the message. Please keep doing it from time to time so old guys like me can stay in the loop.
Thanks again!
I agree, as one who would criticize because I didn’t want to hear the news. I appreciate the heads up, good or bad to me personally.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska...#Current_fleet

This shows 62 current E175. Also shows 33 Q400.

If the Q's go away, that would be a net reduction in regional aircraft.

I doubt they would go for any huge changes to the mainline/regional balance in the middle of contentious scope negotiations. Especially regional E190s.

That would not give the appearance of bargaining in good faith and would thus increase the odds of NMB releasing the union.

Horizon currently operates 30 E175, and Skywest operates 32 E175. So current E175 total is 62.

Horizon is contractually owed 3 more; so expect 65 total in the next couple years.

So the big question, if we are going single fleet then is there any point in opening a Bus SEA base only to close it a short term later? It would seem the cheapest way to transition would be to reduce/vacancy LAX from Airbus/Boeing respectively, and for SFO close/open Airbus/Boeing?

I was just trying to provide context for the "80 AAG ERJs by 2025" that's being predicted.

I'll go ahead and make a prediction for the 18 unallocated ERJs: Skywest will get 8, and Horizon will get 12. They'll both end up with 40 each.

Source? Or a “gut feeling”

It we weren’t going single fleet, wouldn’t we have ordered or acquired Airbus by now? It just seems that in a time when we need airplanes, the silence means we have no interest in Airbus?

It’s for that reason it seems like we are headed for a single fleet. Hoping for at least 100-150 MAX orders!
