The Delta contract is up then for Compass, probably has something to do with that.

Call me when TSA figures out where they are putting their MRJs first.

I suspect those will go bye bye.

GO SKYWEST.

Yes, but the point is, TSA gets to figure out where to put them first. Everyone is watching.

TSH hasn't said where the MRJ will go. It could be Compass, TSA or GoJetssss.
I bet the MRJ goes away too. Now, with that said, the world is watching the almighty SKW to see where they put theirs first. GO SKYWEST! Also, I'd appreciate a map of where SKW will fly the MRJ. If you could post that that would be great.

With SkyWest and TSH ordering them we can probably assume they will be just fine with the weight restrictions spelled out in the scope language. 2020 is a long time from now so things could change a LOT before then. Too early to tell what will actually end up happening.

This news is associated with holdings. You're looking for compass or maybe even gojets. Trans states airlines is the red headed step child that specializes in flying used and old erjs nobody wants, 1 out of 4 trips might go smoothly.

Supposedly the weight on the mrj90 would violate scope for most. Tsa gets the first ten or fifteen as per an agreement with tsh.

So if they had gotten it ontime it would not have worked with scope. Makes you wonder what their plan was.

In the past major carriers made commitments for scope busting airplanes and were able to gain scope concessions just in time to keep the deliveries coming.

Most forecasts are for a down-turn from 2017 to 2020.

MRJ is being built and tested in my backyard - Moses Lake, Washington. Announced that the facility will be used for initial flight testing by the end of 2015. Should bring 200 jobs, including test pilots, Engineers, & Technicians

Remember watching the JAL 747's do touch and goes out there? I grew up out there and took that sight for granted. Doesn't surprise me Moses Hole is where they'll be doing the testing. Great location.

I suppose they can recertify magtow down to something under the scope limitations. Something like 86000 lbs.

That and gross weight adjustments.....for example, the Embraer 175 AR and LR mods.

The AR has a gross TO weight of 85,517 and the LR a gross TO of 89,000

The only difference: Some bolt in the wing (minor) and higher ply tires, otherwise the aircraft are identical. Plug these numbers into Deltas scope language:)
