once the merger closes with us air/aa republic will operate a total of 106 e-jet series aircraft for the new american eagle. From what i have read the us airways express aircraft are grandfathered in.

when will 737/A320 size aircraft be outsourced to Regionals?

I just can't believe that Mngt will want to replace the pilots retiring with more legacy pilots.

Ryanair already pays 737-800 FO's $27,000 year

The Skywest, crack "new airframe" team is spooling up in SGU. Internal requests for a Special Projects" team are out there and lots of buzz.

Based on the Republic award and American Airlines (AMR) plans for up to 215 larger regional aircraft, looks like there are still 168 left to award and to be operational from now until 2018. That's quite a bit of expansion.

*Republic operating out of Chicago leaves all the other bases to see some larger aircraft.
"large" aircraft and regional should never be in the same sentence.

SkyWest gets around 34 of the 175s.
Erlanger I trust your information...usually right on the money.

I heard it was 35 total...22 for SkyWest and 13 for Expressjet...ratio subject to change cause Brad thinks they can do it for much cheaper!

But I think it's going to take a while to get the certification, maintenance and training programs up, and get the airframes.

13 airframes at one company is useless. They will ALL go to SkyWest if any at all. Guys, get real.

True, but this is for a NEW A/C type. Is it worth having all the pilot training, MTC training, parts spares, sims, manuals for 13 airplanes?

If it allows you to start the aircraft program and compete for future contracts for that popular aircraft type, then maybe.

More "large" RJs at the regionals = less mainline jobs to look forward to.

For sure, SkyWest Airlines has no "relationship with embraer"... Where did they get those EMB-120's they still operate again?:rolleyes:
If not for that HUGE E-120 order in the late 90's, Embraer probably wouldn't be around to be talked about right now.

Don't forget the ERJ is probably what United wants for bigger A/C, so the ExpressJet side would have a lot more than 13.
