Mesa started that with UAL 175s not that long ago by offering/agreeing to finance the metal.

So clearly the Republic order is vaporware because these orders will take over the production pipeline.

Didn't you guys say that any new 175 AA flying would fall under a WO. Yet it looks like AA just gave 10 years to SkyWest. Interesting.

seems like AA "network growth" is via regional partners versus AA themselves.

This might rub more salt in the old wound but AA is hiring and interviewing lots of Skywest Mainline folks!
I hope THKooj has an explanation for this.

Skywest is the largest regional out there. All the majors are "interviewing lots of Skywest Pilots"
