    I'm guessing they'll go on the ASA side?

    It is true, however, I was also told this will come with a reduction in r 50 seat fleet. These planes r for the erj side. So no upgrades/possible downgrades.

    Next will come the rumor that it won't happen till we vote in the contract. Sorry, not buying this during negotiations.

    There's an old saying... fool me once, shame on... umm... you... umm... you fool me you can't get fooled again...

    So they are going to buy 150 CRJ's and put them with the only pilot group that doesn't have experience and training flying CRJ's? This isn't making much sense to me. But thanks for the Friday afternoon fun ;).

    If so I'm guessing someone in Skywest management is reading this thread and getting a good laugh right now.

    Except that they can't just replace 50 seaters with 70 seaters on a whim. We can't even fly anything with 70 seats on the CAL side and I'm sure UA has scope limits as well.

    They can order 500 70 seaters, I still won't vote yes for a shitty contract!

    UMM is full of ****!!! I will gladly apologize if it is true.
