Embraer has a new order nine E175 twin-engine jets from SkyWest Inc.,
It’s certainly a positive for OO to replace older aircraft with significantly better ones. But it doesn’t move the seniority list one bit.

And if they replace 900s, those planes won’t be turned into CRJ550s. A leasing business is good for shareholders but doesn’t really do anything for the pilots.

Not ORD. At least when I left and from what I hear it's still the case. Senior pilots getting 12 days off, low block lines. Not really commutable. Pick up open time???

Is he talking block or credit?

75 hours block in 11 days adds up to 6.8 hours per day. No way that is the case.

I have not bothered to look now, but when I left the lines were in the 60 hours of block range. And that is working 18-19 days, not 11 days.

Block doesn't matter. Credit is what's important for getting the 200%.

The 550's took the wind out of your sails to make Exjet great again..Oldest fleet of 145's and smallest fleet of 175's. If they can be staffed that is..

Still in a much better position than Gojet.
