Have the boss man booked on a trip to RDU on Thursday. The equipment has changed dramatically.
The 7:00 am, 9:30 am, 2:00 pm, and 5:30 pm have all been yanked from CRJ. All are now ERJ except for the 2:00 which is a Dash. The 7:00 pm is stil a CRJ.
Did Midway have a big mechanical to deal with???

From what I understand two CRJ's were delivered (new ?) from Bombardiar and both had significant engine problems. All last week the 3 LGA-RDU Midway trips were flown as extra-sections with Allegheny Dash 8's providing a significantly slower ride. They are usually weight restricted also.
This should be resolved by March 26. Chautauqua still provides 3 ERJ roundtrips in the market.
