Is there anything to stop SKW Inc from taking 4 -200's off of ASA and replacing them with 4 -900's on to SKW?
It would only be a gain of 4 aircraft if SKW took 4 CR2s from ASA, which I suppose they could do. However, I took the memo to mean we were swapping the CR2s out of our fleet.

The poster before you said they were retiring 18 120's (I refuse to call it a "Bro"...I don't smoke weed) and relocating 5 120's in exchange for 22 more CRJ's. So...22 - 18 = 4 extra airframes. Then you're supposed to swap out 4 more -200's for -900's...it's already been established that those -900's will go to SKW. What hasn't been talked about is where those -200's are coming from; ASA or SKW?

Good thing you guys are all on one seniority list with one contract, otherwise you might have to fight each other for work...

ASA wisely negotiated some scope into their proposed contract...to minimize aircraft transfers to SKW.

The shrinking fleet continues later this year.

Bringing back 8 yr old threads is not cool.

Epic fail.
