    110 aircraft to 30 by this summer?
    Is this true? Or fake news?

    They're down to 12 daily departures in ord by the fall because our 175s are in ord now and Skywest's on time performance sucks.

    This is a new one to me, NoOT, where are you hearing this? Hopefully it's true. I remember walking down G once and seeing nothing but SW tails with a AE or EG here or there. It was surreal. My understanding is that the gate agents aren't especially enamored with them, either.

    I've heard it many times by many different people (Managers, etc) at the training center. I've heard it from many agents as well as good friends at Skywest.

    Sweet click bait thread title bro.

    "Pilot was SHOCKED when the gate agent..."

    "Crew was NOT PREPARED when on short final, without warning...."

    "Taking it deep and hard, she whispered..."

    Exactly. Why do you think Envoy has been expanding so aggressively and we are gaining a 175 ORD base?

    To violate the flow agreement and because the CRJs are leaving?

    Haha. Real funny you jerkwad. Seems like you were 100% on board and very vocal with supporting Envoy and the flow not so long ago. And you just said it yourself how Skywest performance sucks. Just another complaining hater now it seems.

    Rumblings of a Skywest Dfw base. Asked a couple friends over there and they’re hearing it as well. But just like our lax or philly rumor they’re about as believable as dacuj’s sobriety.

    It’s more then rumblings, it’s happening likely by the end of the year. They’re even building a mx base in OKC to support it. Word is it’s the ORD planes that will be moved to DFW as Envoy continues to ramp up the 175 out of ORD. I’ve heard it directly from the head of pilot HR at OO
