Flying Agreement Announcements

Delta:
SkyWest Airlines, Inc. (“SkyWest Airlines”) reached an agreement with Delta Air Lines (“Delta”) to operate 20 new Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft under a nine-year flying contract. The aircraft will be acquired by Delta under a previously announced agreement with Bombardier and operated by SkyWest Airlines. SkyWest Airlines anticipates placing the 20 CRJ900s into service beginning late 2018 through 2020. These aircraft will have the ATMOSPHÈRE cabin with a 70-seat, dual-class configuration and will replace 20 CRJ700s scheduled to expire under SkyWest’s flying contracts with Delta.

American:
SkyWest Airlines reached an agreement with American Airlines (“American”) to place 20 used CRJ700s under a four-year contract. The 20 CRJ700s are expected to be sourced from within SkyWest’s fleet. The first aircraft in this agreement was placed into service in June 2018 and all 20 aircraft are scheduled to be in service by early 2019.

United:
SkyWest Airlines reached an agreement with United Airlines (“United”) to extend their existing flying contract on 19 CRJ700s operated by SkyWest Airlines. These aircraft previously had contract expirations scheduled for mid-2019/2020 and were extended for three years.

Separately, ExpressJet Airlines, Inc. (“ExpressJet”) reached an agreement with United to a three-year contract for 20 used CRJ200s. The 20 CRJ200s are expected to be sourced from within SkyWest’s fleet through contract expirations with other partners scheduled for the second half of 2018. The 20 CRJ200s are expected to be placed into service with United between the latter part of 2018 and early 2019.

Most of this looks like even swaps that we already knew about. Looks like LASA will be using some parked CRJ-200 for United again coming from Delta or the AA 200's coming off contract?

They have DL 200’s that came off contract that Inc. was going to place with OO but the 45 day MX turn around was taking 80+ min.. they decided to keep them on the XJT side. Do to the short tem nature of the contract (3 years...)

XJT CRJs will most likely be going to ORD.

This was already known for weeks. Someone way up over at Delta Connection already said they were coming to us when Endeavor pilots asked him.

Correct, they are AS tails just returning to XJT. Looks like we may see that trend continue...

They were all the “generic” paint. Mostly used for pro-rate markets.. mostly AA 200’s and XJT 200’s that were in conformancy checks that are taking to long will be used..

AS= Alaska not ASA. That equals XJT.... they were referring to the aircraft that were flying for Alaska airlines in SEA. So I assumed.

Don't think they had 20 200's for Alaska?

Look at the n number... last 2 letters are A.S. hence AS birds.

It will actually be put out to bid system wide under our ISL (integrated seniority list).

I thought the lerson was referring to the Alaska 200’s we were flying until last month... those were just spares in generic paint. Sorry for the confusion
