Republic Holdings order has to go somewhere, UA

AA Eagle wil have Ejet 100+ seaters via US

SCOPE language is pretty weak

Kind of an interesting circumstance, is the mainlines AA, DL, & UA have bought or financed many of the REGIONAL JETS contracted out and flown by the regional airlines in the mainline's Express, Connection, or Eagle brands.

Should any of these large regionals call it quits in a bankruptcy declaration due to a lack of pilots, FAA rest rules, etc...

It will be:
United Continental Holdings
American Airlines Group
Delta Air Lines

that will be tasked at finding other regionals to fly the 50 seaters which are currently being flown at a loss by well organized and efficient regionals already.

Either Embraer, Bombardier, AA, DL, or UA, will have to take a hit on the wind down of these fleets, and yet again when the 76 seaters are found lacking due to rising fuel costs.

All is not good as it appears on the surface unless you are looking at Airbus A321s or Bombardier C Series to refleet as frequencies are reduced and gauges up-sized.

Let's just wait to see Delta Connection flying 130 seaters.

Delta's pilots pretty much rolled over and let Delta upside Com airs 50 seaters to 70 seaters. Next it will be 90 seaters, 110 seaters, and 130 seaters at the Connection. Express Eagles.

In fact the new larger Ejets are already being modified to seat 110+

Upsize Comair that is.

autocomplete rewrites so much these days, pretty soon the libs will actually believe, Obama to be the second black president cause as the first one he sure does stink!

And yes African heritage people in the US do have a different body odor, but in stink; I am not referring to him in that way... so don't choke on your marijuana smoke libs.

Thankfully the first Black US President Clinton scores at least C+ compared to Obama's F on the job. Maybe the race based quotas allowing non European heritage under performers into select universities needs to go in favor of allowing European heritage peoples equality again instead of last in the free cheese line.
