Default Skywest to operate 20 175ís for American

All owned by Skywest. Compass aircraft still up in the air.

Good news for ENY, seems like we will receive the CP 175s after all to staff our ORD/DFW base. Unfortunately this is not a good sign for Compass.

Not a good piece of news for our West Coast commuters. I suppose a PHX base is their only hope now.

Perhaps if people didnít come on here to scare new hires away MAYBE we would have had the staffing to support LAX. Nice

No way to really know where they are going to operate. Could even be Boston with AA dialing up operations there once again. Former Eagle base as well......

SKW could easily get the CPZ planes on top of this. Makes sense to operate 40, instead of a small fleet of 20.

They already operate 175s for United and Delta the only difference for them is the color of the paint job. Of course 40 is better than 20 but the cost of scale isn't really a factor here since they are already such a large operator.

The Borg already has plenty of E75 operating for UA and DL, so I don't think they're worried about economies of scale.

The top brass told us in indoc a couple months ago this was coming. LAX to Skywest and the compass planes to ORD only. Nothing to DFW. PHX is still the only valid west coast rumor left.

You guys are overlooking key piece of information that lead to this. Skywest are buying the airplanes not AA. It would be different if AA had to finance the planes themselves. If the latter was the case, I think Envoy would have gotten the planes.
