Default DAL to reduce 35 CRJ-200

Announced in the DAL 1qtr conference call.


Committed to reducing CRJ 50 seat fleet - least efficient aircraft they have. 35 gone this year, along with 15 Saabs. Another 50 regionals leave next year

- 787 trying to work out of that contract. 744 life extended 5+ years with upgrades, happy with "young" into fleet



- Seemed pleased with hub revenue performance, particularly JFK

- 1 738, 6 MD90s being delivered this quarter

Who has 50's ?

Who is wholly owned?

Who has a short-term contract?

If that's not enough, DL could buy out a regional, or make a deal to trade two-for-one 50's for 70's or something like that (if there's any room left in the scope).

Unfortunatly I think its going to be all comair and mesaba. I know we will all have our guesses as to what is going to happen and no one knows for sure. However for the summer pinnacle has more flying in MEM and MSP. DTW is a little less but a lot of that flying is now in JFK, LGA, and CVG. Those are places we now have turns out of. MEM now has a lot of trips going in and out of ATL and IND on the 200. Our 900's are also doing turns out of MEM. Our flying is being spread out and growing. Even with ASA coming to MEM our hours are still going up. But then again we are pretty much an all 200 airline so that doesn't help the odds.
Comair has been losing planes and so has Mesaba. I dont think that will end anytime soon. And with freedom coming up also that will be a big chunk of the 50 seaters out there now.

and yes. we have all known this is coming for about 2 years now.

20 of the 50 seat retirements are coming from ASA this year. We "traded" them in for 10 90 seaters. 16 of the 50 seaters have been "placed" with United.

as of right now they just displaced about 30 pilots (16 fo and 13 ca) to cover the extra flying. I think they are hoping that takes care of it.
