Haters gonna hate man. I have little confidence in the ATL 175 rumor. I simply stated I had heard it awhile back.

Seems like Republic would do any east coast 175 flying.

FWIW the MSP CP told me a month ago that more "dual class" flying was coming to MSP. I asked if it was 900s and he just emphasized "dual class."

Compass is also in the final stages of winding down their MSP base so it would make sense that our new 175s will go there to fill that gap. Who knows though. The SLC crews might cry enough and make SGU give them a 175 base too. God forbid the SLC crews get downsized to what that base should actually be..

I would guess 7/900s to MSP but I have no idea. I'm curious where the recently announced Delta 175 SCs whatever end up.

Thats what I'm talking about too. I didn't think the 900 lite rumor had any truth until I heard about 175 SCs.. I would suspect 175s to the west coast and 900s to the Midwest.

900 lite rumor has to do more with AA scope I think.

AA scope is a little different.
The categories are 50-65 seat jet, and then 66-76 seat jet. The 900lites doesn't make sense there. A 700 at 65 seats would make sense and Envoy and PSA have 700s configured at 63 and 65 seats.

In Delta scope, there are still 15 70-seat jets up for grabs. That's where the 900 lites could come in.

Right on. Following the EV / 9E shuffle, there are another 15 RJs in the 70 seater catgeory up for grabs with DL.

The other one to watch will be G7. I believe their DL contract is up soon and they claim 22 700's and 7 900's in their DL fleet.

That makes for a total of 44 additional airframes that I am sure are being shopped around between OO, E9 and YX. depending on the certificate they will be 900 lights or 175CS.

I heard the Bros are coming back to cover EAS flying for PenAir. Service to KCEC and KLMT starts Jan 1.

Heard it from a friend's cousin's sister's nephew who babysits a retired ramper's grandkid.
