Hypothetically all our -200s leave NYC by the end of the year as advertised. Where does that leave the upgrade time? I imagine it would go up with more DTW/MSP -900 shrinkage and more guys commuting out to NYC for the heavy jet.

Don't forget ATL. They will likely pull 200's out of NY for ATL, and move 900's into NY to replace them. But probably can't move enough 200s out of NY at one time, so the 200s will come from all three bases to fill ATL, I would guess.

ATL is not a sure bet, only a "southern base"
New rumor is an RDU base - hot off the press

I generally describe it as 'Cross LGA at F190. Open the window and throw out a brick'
Follow it down.
An ASALT on the senses? :-)

I just done see how it can be anything but Atlanta. Someone has to cover the loss of fights from Express Jet 200. I guess you hypothetically could cover it from anywhere but that would mean a lot of Atlanta overnights and that doesn't seem like a good business decision. Perhaps I have blinders on because I'd like to see an Atlanta base. For all we know there may not be a new base - what would we have to post about if it wasn't rumors and grievances.

Nothing, what's wrong with you? The guy clearly feels $50-$60 an hour is worth missing time away from his kids or family. Unless he is un-married, then it wouldn't matter but as the other guy had said, picking up open time isn't really worth missing time at home with the family at that pay rate. So carry on jaggoff!

any possible timeline for RDU? I realize it is simply a rumor.

If by "hot off the press" you mean for the past 3 years, I hear ya.

But considering that our # of flights in and out of ATL more than quadruples in June on the 200, I'd put my $$ on ATL.

Forgive my stupidity, but is there a place where daddy's schedule is published that far out in advance?
