The 550 is a POS airplane, mainly due to the weight limitation. If… and that is a huge IF ALPA were to ever release that scope on the weight, the 550 could be one of the best regional airplanes ever. Or even the possibility of a E-155 version… the weight is the problem.

Incorrect statement
out of the 500 new aircraft over next 5 years, 200 are growth, 300 replacement.
and with 200 50 seaters leaving, PSP, FAT, TUS are on borrowed time.

When did you get fired by SkyWest again?

And thanks for the clarification on 200 a/c growth. PSP, FAT, TUS are senior domiciles and will be just fine. It’s the same as UA with CLE, probably should be closed, but ya can’t upset those senior folks.

Except UA could give 2 sh!ts about its regional partners/bases.

Yeah sweet post buddy.

SkyWest makes decisions on SkyWest domiciles not UA. Plenty of 175 domiciles that could/should be open, plenty of CRJ domiciles that should/could be closed.

Go back to peddling the “aviate” program to clueless CFI’s to join regional airlines with dying fleets. I’m sure if you really are a “mentor” your company loves you coming into our threads to belittle us.

I can’t picture you at your United interview.

Confirmed, we have crews going down next month to Brazil for acceptance and to bring them back to be SFO based for transpacific flights.

Well OO has 113 CRJ200’s for UA plus a few generic paint “floaters”. With UA saying ruffly 100 50 seat aircraft i foresee the majority of them being the 145xr. I wouldn't plan on OO flying more then 40-50 for UA when all is said and done. And thats on the optimistic side.. But OO has used 700’s lurking in TUS waiting for a home.. so maybe we dive into the 550 world. But doubtful… As they can lease them to G7 and go after more 175’s with the excess staffing.. but attrition is going to go through the roof soon.. but as UA puts there new aircraft online the 175 pairings are going to suffer as the 737/A320’s take the longer E175 flying.. Just my observation.. cant wait for the next OO earnings call. See how they answer the questions on this!!!
