Of course the Max is off the table but any other new deliveries set for this year?

788s which will replace 763s and most if not all based out of PHL for Transatlantic flying. A321NEOs which will be used primarily for HA flying (and other dense domestic routes out of PHX) which will ultimately replace LUS 757s. I think a few other used A319s are coming from Frontier and AA is rumored to be in the market for more used A319s.

A321NEOs are coming in at a rate of one every couple of weeks.

They're estimating an increase in 22 MAXs. We'll see about that.

I've seen DFW-HND flights (when the route starts) using 77Ws. Since there isn't any increase in that fleet this year, anyone know where those are being pulled from in the system?

Too funny, I was thinking the exact same thing. The E175 is probably the best domestic Y passenger experience for my money. Topped only by the rare occasions where they run widebodies with free PE on domestic routes.

And that E175 number is slightly higher than originally anticipated. It was supposed to be 189 planes by YE2020 (84 Envoy + 85 Republic + 20 Compass), so perhaps Envoy is adding even more. I don't remember seeing anything on that.

Agree! It's charming to have a mainline that doesn't take 30 min to board / deboard.
15 yrs doesn't seem old...are they being returned, retired or sold off?

Are the new 788's being equipped with the Zodiac seats or are they being fit with Super Diamond?
