Heard a rumor once again at work that bombardier has an order of 15 crj 1000's for an undisclosed buyer. Now I hear that it's going to Sky West for flying they plan to contract into Mexico for SW? Mind you, this is all hear say for me so i'm just looking for some Sky West folks to chime in. Anybody else hear about this?

don't know about the CRJ1000 but GECAS has an order for 25 Chinola RJ's (90 to 100 seater, a copy of the 717). They do not say who they are going to lease them too.

Google "GECAS" and you will find the info.

GECAS Places Fleet Order for Chinese RJ

http://www.ainonline.com/news/singl...t-order-for-chinese-rj/news/single-news-page/China Aviation Industry I (AVIC I) Commercial Aircraft Co. (ACAC) is to supply Irish-American aircraft lessor GE Commercial Aviation Services (GECAS) with up to 25 General Electric CF34-powered ARJ21-700ER regional jets starting in 2013 under a contract signed today at the China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai. The agreement, China’s biggest in both unit numbers and value, is worth some five billion Chinese yuan (about $730 million).

ACAC claims to hold “commitments” for a total of 206 of the twinjets, which can be configured to carry from 70 to 95 passengers. Originally scheduled to fly last March, the 1,390-nm ARJ21 is now expected to take off for the first time this month. Certification had been previously scheduled for next month, though this now seems very unlikely.

GECAS signed the contract with Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (Comac), a state-owned company in which AVIC I is a major shareholder, along with four other companies. Comac plans to develop larger airliners that could carry more than 150 passengers, misleadingly dubbed "jumbo" designs by Chinese officials

They don't tell us anything at Skywest. We usualy read about it in the papers before we hear about it from our own, If it happens at all.

The chinese RJ is not being certified for FAA/JAA...I would not expect to see them in the west.

Keep dreaming. You won't see 100 seater at any commuter.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hope that they come here, Tho we would get a pretty good pay bump and create some "job security", I don't believe that aircraft has any business at a regional airline, It's like a DC-9

It ain't gonna happen, so don't worry about it. They could not steal that scope limit from us in ch 11, they ain't gonna get it now. Don't underestimate the anger at all of the majors.

Riiight....Like we were never going to see any 70-seaters or 50-seaters or any jets at all or anything bigger than an S330.

I don't want to see 100-seaters at regionals, but never say never.

Its not going to happen. I will say it now. 70-76 is all you will get. The bottom quarter of all the major seniority list has either been furloughed or stagnated due to the outsourcing. We are not in a giving mood. Unless you are a lifer, this will benefit you.

For the sake of all of us, I hope you're right. The past, however, speaks loudly.

I'd have to say he's probably right. Usair mainline flies the 190 as does JetBlue. You will see all 100 seaters from here on out at mainline. The problem is the mainline rates for these aircraft are not mainline rates. They are a "cross-breed" between regional and mainline payrates. This was what was given to draw a hard-line in the sand.
