It would be great for my career progress if Delta eliminates all the CRJ flying, but we all know it's not going to happen.

How so? What would happen if Delta eliminated all the feed from smaller cities?

Delta pilots would start flying the small RJ's.

That's not what flycrj200 said....He said it would be good if Delta:

"eliminates all the CRJ flying".

The ASA and CMR pilots tried to have it all done under a single list back in 2000...That horse has already left the barn....

Now 18 not 16.

Riiiiight! Because nothing is more cost effective than replacing cheap labor on planes Delta claims they don't want with expensive labor!

90 seaters huh? :confused: How many planes are configured with 90 seats again? :confused:

I know that drives me nuts when people say that. They usually call them "90s". I can see the 700 being called a "70" but no one says 20's for the 200. Were there any 900's that were configured to 90 seats? I thought the most seats on any U.S. carrier is about 86. Might as well round it off to 100.

I think the Mesa ones for the old AWA feed are 86 seats, which is the highest density con

Just make sure it's referred to as the "9" and flip your epaulets. :)
