    Doesn’t Horizon operate a fleet of 51 Q400 aircraft for AS?

    To bad Republic pilots only make $25, 000 a year. Only reason why they were awarded these planes were undercutting the rest of the regionals to get the contract. Remember this next time you fly on one of these 175’s. They can’t even staff their current fleet with it’s compensation level. Republic cancels flights at greater rates then other regionals. Not sure how they will be able to recruit for these additional planes.

    It would be fantastic if they could configure these E75s with wifi. Is that on the roadmap at all?

    I like the E75s, nice planes. I hope the Devil’s Chariot (CRJ-200s) will be among the first to be retired.

    SkyWest isn’t the only E-175 operator for UA. Mesa is flying some for UA as well, mostly out of IAH.

    I prefer the E190s and 195s more than the 175s.
    May be just imagination of better ride.

    UA may have been better off using the 190s and 195s as “mainline regionals” for the longterm and standardizing their fleet.
    AFAIK, the 190/195s are almost the old MD80s in capacity.
    I wonder how they behave at high altitude airports.

    DL went with 717s I think to help at SLC
    Also the 757s will be really missed when they are gone.
    Great planes, with huge number of F class for upgrades.
    I flew one back from MAN and it was fine (though not a 747 / A380)
