Default CRJ vs ERJ? (COS/DEN/SLC/DFW)

Long term (2+ years) OO aspirations including some combo of COS/DEN/SLC/DFW bases (COS/DEN for the long haul in all likelihood). No Shiny Jet Syndrome here and was thinking CRJ due to desired bases. Saw a couple folks refer to the CRJ as a Ďdying fleetí recently, but that seems tough to believe given current OO fleet makeup, UAís scope clause, etc. 2+ years is long enough for gravity to potentially no longer exist before itís my time, but - given my base preferences - Iím curious about the likely intermediate-to-long term future of the OO CRJ fleet and opportunities for folks assigned to the CRJ fleet. Thoughts?

What does OO have, like 400+\- CRJs? Hard to imagine not requiring thousands of CRJ pilots for years to come....but as someone will point out (not incorrectly), ďitís the regionals.Ē Crazy business...

CRJ is not going anywhere any time soon.

Second that^ CRJís are here for a long time to come. we still are taking New 900ís. (Yes replacing some older 200ís/700ís) but 60 NHís alone in the CRJ every 2 weeks with no end in sight.. that being said. DEN ERJ is UA.. we donít have anymore UA 175ís coming at the moment.. so i would go CRJ... Denver is supposed to be are largest Hub by summer....
