    AMR and ALPA are deceivers and liars. There is no good news. ALPA destroyed Comair, Midwest and Eagle is next. If you don't think what ALPA has done is intentional then you may want to take a closer look at things. Oh and express jet, karma is a bit$h, they will destroy you next.

    Guess the info has its wires crossed, one party says the RAH flying in ORD will mostly new flying, another says we're losing a ton of ORD flying. Which is it?

    Wait for the vacancy/displacement... You'll have your answer.

    NY is already losing 2 aircraft a month... RAH is adding 2-3 a month starting in June. Sure sounds like somebody's flying is getting replaces.

    well i am going to believe the ord capt rep frank because he is in the know being tony's lap dog. Frank knew better for the contract and knows best for the PBS and knew more about the scope changes we made to be more protective, so why should i not believe frank that they are replacing ord crj flying.

    for those lucky ones who dont get the 133 news,

    LEC 133 NewsBlast



    Fellow American Eagle Chicago Pilots:

    Though AMR has been talking about something like yesterday’s announcement for years, management’s decision to outsource work to a new vendor is no less painful than if it had come out of the blue. For decades, we have worked building American Eagle's brand on the principals of dedication and the upmost in professionalism; it appears as though the "New American" has lost total sight of what we have worked so hard to create. We are all facing a myriad of negative emotions but your elected representatives wish to provide as much information as possible to help you plan and prepare for the future while understanding the present. The following is what we know from Eagle Management:



    First, the ORD domicile is NOT closing. The outsourced flying will start this summer and slowly take over much of our current 70 seat work but the actual deployment is to be determined. Management indicates that with expected attrition to AA and other mainline carriers coupled with re-fleeting efforts of the “Real Eagle,” there may be little if any need to actually displace out of ORD. The plan is for us to continue to operate out of ORD though it may be a smaller base over the next few years.



    Second, we are expecting an announcement regarding the future of our fleet very soon. As Captain Winkley indicated in his email yesterday, work is ongoing with manufacturers to replace our smaller jets with new equipment and we anxiously await those details.



    Lastly, yesterday’s announcement should not be misconstrued for the long awaited fleet plan. Though this is one piece of the overall AMR fleet puzzle, it is not the whole regional piece and we will remain a large part of that larger puzzle. Overall, this is a lost opportunity for growth in regional feed to AA, not a replacement of Eagle. Sadly, it may result in a smaller Chicago base but the airplanes made redundant in Chicago will be redeployed elsewhere in the system.



    We truly wish that our first joint communication could have covered a happier topic but we wanted to send this from both the outgoing and incoming reps to reassure all of you that the Chicago pilots and your families are at the forefront of our thoughts as we navigate these new airways. There is a lot of uncertainty but we urge you to seek out correct information when you have questions and avoid doom and gloom speculation that is so rampant these days.



    In closing, we are working on a list of your questions concerning the specifics of this announcement. We have compiled about a dozen specific concerns that have been repeatedly brought to us in the past 24 hours. We are taking these questions to management and will get the answers back to you as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please reach out to one of us or to your P2P reps.



    Fraternally,

    All right you neg-button-pushers, that was by far one of the least controversial and sarcastic posts I've made here, and you neg'd it FL410? At least say why instead of neg-and-running. I see you have 0 posts, probably not much hope of that.

    53 Aircraft is an awful lot of "new" flying. An unbelievable amount actually, which is why I don't believe it. You don't go into our biggest hub with bigger airplanes than anything we've got, and not replace a significant amount of flying. There is just no other way to look at this than a devastating blow to Eagle. The feigned response from our ALPA leadership is a joke.

    Republic can bridge a lot of scheduled flights through other hubs, like DFW or MIA. There's nothing to stop AMR and Bedford from adjusting their gameplan mid delivery and redeploying those first 53 to other hubs and then exercising options to backfill elsewhere. In fact, a near 100 plane order/option plan would be less terrifying and destabilizing to this carriers employees if only one hub was officially targeted initially as opposed to revealing from the beginning that there are plans for deployment to multiple hubs.

    If they can staff them: http://durangoherald.com/article/201...130209817/-1/s

    Carrier’s staff shortage triggers delays
    Problems could last until March for Republic Airlines

    By Emery Cowan Herald staff writer


    To all the fliers who have complained about an increase in cancellations and delays on flights to and from Durango-La Plata County Airport, the airport’s Deputy Director of Aviation Don Brockus would like to say, “You’re right.”

    The cause for the increase primarily falls on the shoulders of Republic Airlines and the company’s decision to take on extra route responsibilities without having crews to man those flights.

    Republic is one of three carriers that operates aircraft under the United Express banner at the Durango-La Plata County airport.

    Crew shortages on Republic flights were the main cause of a twofold increase in delays and cancellations on United Express flights between October and December, said Jodi Doney, the Skywest/United Express Station Manager during a January presentation to the Durango-La Plata County Airport Commission. Controllable delays rose from 16 percent to 32 percent from October to December while controllable cancellations jumped from 2.5 percent to 5.6 percent, Doney told the commission.

    “They’re spreading themselves fairly thin,” she said of the airline.

    Republic’s problems are rooted in the carrier’s decision to take on another contract with United Express that was previously held by Colgan Air. Colgan was phased out of operation in September after its parent company, Pinnacle Airlines Corp., filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection in April 2012 .

    According to a May news release, Republic purchased about 30 aircraft from Colgan Air and began operating the planes in August. The transition went smoothly at first, but as Republic took on additional routes to places such as Gunnison, Grand Junction and Eagle, the company fell behind on hiring and training crews to staff the new aircraft and fly the new routes, Doney said.

    The problem probably won’t start to improve until March, Doney said.

    “Hopefully, they will start to recover by our spring break,” she said.

    Calls made to Republic Airlines for comment were not returned.

    Despite the hassles for La Plata County fliers, Brockus complimented Republic Airlines and United Express for relaying information about the cause of recent delays and cancellations.

    “It was a really unique and refreshingly honest response,” he said. “Usually airlines are pretty tight with information.”

    Expressjet and Skywest also operate aircraft flying in and out of La Plata County under the United Express label, but the “vast majority” of significant nonweather-related issues were on flights operated by Republic Airplanes, Brockus said.

    Airline flight ratings bear out that statement. Between Nov. 15 and Jan. 15, almost 70 percent of the flights from Denver to Durango operated by Republic were rated poor or very poor based on on-time performance, while 19 percent of those operated by Skywest and 28 percent operated by ExpressJet were poor or very poor, according the website flightstats.com

    Would you, your "source" and Winkley care to revisit or revise your statement above? It would especially be beneficial if Jim Winkley could update the Eagle pilots as he is the Vice President of Operations and should have reliable information.
