Default Atlanta base 3.0?

Heard some rumors that Atlanta base might be on the horizon for SkyWest, again. Capacity issues are hitting all the regionals but heard from an Endeavor pilot that they are challenged with staffing. Heard from someone else internally at OO that Delta is looking at it. I'm aware that OO is focused on the west for Delta and there are a lot pieces moving around even more than usual right now. Just wanted to see if anyone else is hearing anything. Remember to not steal an Aha from your FA.

It would make my QOL so easy, I could care less about the trips if I didn't have to commute. But we will see. I also heard the same. All we can do is wait. I saw someone saying some stuff about big news coming in the next couple weeks.

But like everything, nothing is set in stone until it happens.

The monthly vacancy has 64 175 upgrades available, compared to 45 on the CRJ, total 109 for November. Is this officially the first time more ERJ upgrades are available than CRJ? First time Iíve seen it.

Has the initial turn begun towards faster movement on the ERJ? It sure looks like it. CRJ will still be the quicker upgrade, but the ERJ will inch closer and closer each month. Two years ago Iíd never had guessed. Good stuff.

Pretty sure ERJ had more last month as well. I went back and forth with VD a month or so ago and she said to expect less CRJ upgrades through the remainder of this year as they are running more CRJ newhire classes. Only a finite amount of sim time available..

It'll be interesting to watch how the transition happens for the 200's over the next couple of years with the 2025 target for dropping them completely (or so DL/UA have said anyway...). The overall numbers on the 2/7/9 have to come down with the 7/900 production being stopped.

When going for upgrades to CA, you're able to bid and flip to the ERJ from the CRJ side - correct?

Meh, if it happens it happens. We are pushing 200-250 new hires a month right now. Management wouldn't be doing that if they didn't have a plan in place. We continue to gain 200 UA flying and 700 AA flying.

You can always put your bid in for a transition upgrade. I've seen ERJ to CRJ but haven't seen CRJ to ERJ offered.

CRJ-ERJ hasnít happened for a year.. So ERJ CA will go jr tell it does. Once they allow CRJ-ERJ CA it will jump to 15+ years, as all the senior guys try to get off the CRJÖ.
