I’d imagine when the seating restrictions are dropped, the 717 will find its place again, but whether or not the DTW base gets more love or not, I don’t know.
Not sure you completely understand MIDDLE seat blocking. A 717 can seat 4 out of every 5 seats. Been on a RJ lately?

Look at how long we kept MD88/90 around. Why? Because demand was there and the planes were paid for. Demand being there is key.

The middle seat blocking is a moot point in 3 weeks as we fill our airplanes up.

Yes, they have only been putting 1 person on each side on the RJ’s.

I'm with you. Captain side has been "full" with the FO side blocking the aisle seat. (at least in my experience).

What's the difference between beer nuts and deer nuts?
Beer nuts are $1.99, deer nuts are under a buck.
I apologize.
