Whatís your scope at AA? I thought we were all maxed out? UA has all the large RJs they can get and Iím pretty sure DL is too.

They are scoped out on 76 seaters, Iím almost positive.

Mesa has some pretty haggard old 900s. Probably replacing those or some other old large RJs.

Are any of these actually new orders? Or just exercising options?

They have a number of CR7's that can be converted down to 65 seats and open up large RJ spots...

Is this because of the used frontier airbuses we're getting? Doesn't mainline growth let them add more?

Already done at PSA. Started about a year ago all the 67 seaters are 65 and they are changing the 63s to 65.

Reading the the announcements and other info, at least the 900ís appear to be new orders in addition to what was already in order/options.

They have to replace the lost lift of Trans States and ExpressJets perhaps?
