A buddy was in recurrent last week and said TW shot down West coast and growth would be in New York, he also said expect an announcement in 30-60 days but we wouldn't see the airplanes till late summer/fall 2019. Sounds like Skywest won't be staying in NY.

I think the speculation has been going for quite awhile, nothing to see here. No news at this time; announcement in ?? days.

Second post on APC.... welcome.

Thanks Blue. I figured as such. I was just hoping for something besides NYC.

NYC makes no sense. Delta wants 3 regional carriers and everyone to cover each otherís routes. SkyWest has NYC flying now, yet we keep shrinking our midwest flying and expand NYC. But then again Iím applying logic...

I said in the other thread, if we get E175s, it would be for NYC. The wholly owned is the only carrier that can handle NYC. Hopefully, some CRJs make their way back to DTW/MSP.

That was asked and TW said no growth in MSP/DTW it would remain where it is now. So my only conclusion to that was Skywest would be leaving NY.

Either way, there are only 20 OO 175SC, but there are 36 DL 175s, so either someone else would get the boot from NYC or its growth outside NYC

Saw you guys over there on the blast fence in LGA. Looks good on you.
Iím sure they can develop more fence line to facilitate this perpetually future growth.

Nah theyíre building us a brand new terminal. Since you didnít notice that large structure in the background being built. Iíll take the blast fence and more pay than agreeing to subpar pay and a shiny regional jet but thatís just me.

Right now, but Skywest will have 30 175SC by years end in NYC. Plus it was never confirmed where the planes are coming from. They could keep the Compass 175S but replace GoJet 700 and our 3 700s with 175SC or the 900SC. Time will tell.

Too bad they can't sound that good at LGA.

"Oy, mate, SkyWest 4148 is" blah blah blah get off the f*cking frequency already

Or, ramp tower on a different frequency. Um, this is Skywestóó weíre at gate C41. Ramp isnít answering us on our frequency. So Iím just going to let you know that weíre going to push off gate C41. Ramp tower on other frequency, um sir, you canít just push on your own. Skywest, well theyíre not answering me. So what else do we do. Ramp tower, well you canít just push on your own. Let me make a phone call.

You're damn right, and it won't just be a fence, it will be a blast wall, and AeroMexico will pay for it.

Operationally it would be a easy transition if you guys get E175ís and base them East Coast, where your infrastructure is. Compass had some ruff times when they went west. No Lie SkyWest would love to move the E175ís back west... Delta wanting ďoverlapĒ days are kind of gone. They realize that the regionals do better being ďregionalĒ....
