Thanks for the clarification. They will replace Connection flights on routes that outgrow CR7 makes more sense instead of transitioning the aircraft to COMAIR and ASA.

Now, if we could just get rid of ALPA

Why would you want to get rid of ALPA? Why should 737-200 pilots give their work away to someone who is paid less? I'm not sure I understand what this is about.

Amongst other things, it's about DL paying a 42% wage rate premium to its pilots versus UA. It's about DL's bleeding rate for the couple dozen months remaining in DALPA's vampire-banquet contract.
