"United's use of 50-seat jets will fall to less than 10% of its domestic departures versus about one third currently, Nocella said."

Discuss.

Bye bye CRJ, hello ERJ.
Also, C5ís meteoric rise was short lived.
Bye bye C5/G7.

Where are you going to get ERJís? Scope is maxed out. When 700ís get converted to 550ís you can have ERJís on a 1 for 1 basis, but thatís it. Air Wisconsin and CommutAir may not come out of this, but SkyWest is also going to have a bunch of aircraft removed from the United system with no replacements.

Ok
Iím sure youíre right. SkyWest/republic/Mesa will all shrink away into nothingness in the next 6 months.

Where did I say that? The big three will be fine. SkyWest will most likely continue to fly the current number of 70/76 seat planes, but see the CRJ get retired. Considering how many CRJís you guys operate for United, their retirement will shrink number of pilots that are needed. Iíd expect attrition to take care of the over staffing issues, but it could be a long ride at the bottom for the new hires.

Just to be clear - the CRJ550 will stick around. Any comments re: 50 seater pertains to single class cabin only.

The million dollar question is if somehow the 65,000 MTOW for the 550 gets changed.

To qualify as a 50 seat jet the seating configuration has to be 50 or less and a weight of 65,000 lbs or less. UALPA will not allow the weight to be changed. According to what Iíve read, the single class 50 seat jets are being phased out, but the 550ís are going to be around for a while.
