A few rumors are out there = 700s leaving IAD and going to DEN and supposedly doubling the number of lines? Anyone heard that? Also, some ejets going to IAD to cover the 700 lines?

Heard it. Solid facts are:
We are finally equipping the 700s with ADSB
Mesa purchased at least half of the 700s from the leasing companies. This is in their SEC filings.

With the announcement of united wanting to convert 700s to 550s and use them on business heavy routes DEN makes sense. The new 550s would be good at high altitude airports and would reduce FA staffing requirements.

Donít believe it till you can bid it.

And that right there would be a rumour. Isn't GoJet already the 550 operator chosen by United? They already have a solid Denver base.

The E-Jets have been at IAD for about 4 years now. I think the proper question to ask is "What's the possibility of Mesa opening an E-Jet crew domicile at IAD?" And the answer would be directly proportional to the possibility of IAD ceasing to be a CRJ crew domicile.

Nothing says GoJet is the exclusive CRJ550 for United. United said they wanted 50 550s. GoJet has 25 700 airframes that could be converted. Bombardier isnít making new ones. This is a conversion. We have 20. Easy to do!

I stated two facts that are fact. No rumor involved.

I thought it was fact that Gojet was closing Denver and there UA hubs would be EWR and ORD only...leaving a void in Denver. Theyíve been telling new hires that Denver was happening for a few months now Iím surprised it took this long for someone to post on the forum about it.
