Re: What will replace the EMB145 / CRJ200 ?

Either scope clauses need to change or United will be flying 50 seaters for a long time. They have about 250 50 seaters and 250 70/76 seaters. They can not add any more 70/76 seaters. So if the 50s wear out and are parked they will just need to stop flying them and shrink the RJ fleet. Or negotiate ...
