Isn't this basically incompatible to some degree with US's plan for a merger? It just sounds to me like AA is just marching ahead with their own plans to come out of bankruptcy standalone!

It's 12 F / 20 Main Cabin Select / 44 Economy

The aircraft will primarily be based out of ORD.

Glad to see this-- I have been flying DL a lot and E175 is my favorite airplane in the fleet.

Great news - nice job AA! Interesting to see MCE on this jet too - if only MCE would stay complimentary for GLDs - you hear me AA?

Any speculation on routes? Would love to see the E75 deployed on OKC-ORD!

How come? US has plenty of E-Jets with RW, and those 200-something Embraer 145's aren't gonna magically disappear under Parker either.

And LAX, MIA, ORD, DFW, BOS, LGA as well.

For an RJ, the E175 is a comfortable aircraft.

Expecting a lot of these STL-ORD at some point. The MD80s are usually pretty full, but not slack enough to keep the bigger birds flying, I fear.

Perhaps, but the more urgent need is for these to replace 37/44/50 seaters, not MD-80, 738s or 757 flying. Doesn't ORD-STL currently see some 757s?

So technically Republic will now serve both Frontier and AA? Operate for both?

Republic flies for US Airways and United, and its subsidiaries Chautauqua and Shuttle America already fly for United, American and Delta.

Republic has a pretty enviable book of business, despite the Midwest/Frontier missteps.
