I must be missing something with the whole RJ issue...

Using smaller jets increases frequency and opens up new routes. Isn't this what customers want?

I typically fly Delta from via SLC to FCA, MSO and GTF. I think the move to all Skywest CRJs is great as it doubles the number of flights I can take.

Delta isn't perfect, but using RJs to adjust capacity to demand is a logical business move. (Then again, improving their product and cost structure to make fill up a mainline jet with more profitable customers is also a smart business more.)

Edited to correct formatting.
