Republic Airways Holdings announced at 5pm today that they have an agreement to fly 12 EMB-170's for Midwest. It is a 1.5 year deal then all the aircraft will go to Midwest and be flown by Midwent pilots unless there contract isn't ratified by the end of the year and a half. If it isn't this will become a 10 year agreement and RAH will continue to operate the aircraft. The first four aircraft will start service on OCT. 1 and they add the rest starting on the 15th. Yes this is for real. The press releases are out. Looks like the Republic birds need to put cookie ovens on there planes.
