My deepest condolences to my breAAthren.

UA stopped flying these things here at EWR about a year and a half ago. And when something is too lousy for EWR standards .. well, lets just say I feel for yall. Genuinely.

The best use of a CRJ200 is to be recycled into a tuna can.

The only positive of the CRJ200 is that it is a very safe plane, so theres that.

Good luck, and Godspeed.

Lol they better not bring them back to DCA. We've been 50-seater free for a while now.

Ugh, didn't American/AE completely eliminate CR2s from the fleet just a couple years ago? Any now they are back?

This is probably a pipe dream, but maybe some smart folks can figure out how to configure them like the CR7s with proper F and a few MCE seats.

I shot this on a Q400 flying from Denver to Billings in February of 2014. Loved it.

Sounds like they will fit right into AA's operational model then.

I wonder how many of these planes will be DFW based. That means E concourse.

According to post #1 , they will be mostly based out of ORD. So , not many at DFW.

Wont happen, no scope for 175s and doubt they'll transfer any 7 or 9s from PSA. My guess is envoy phases out 145s the good condition 145s go to piedmonster and the crj 200s replace the Voys 145 flying.
