SkyWest Airlines announced (02-Aug-2012) it will receive another 29 Bombardier CRJ900s as part of a MoU signed with Delta Air Lines. The carrier plans to ground 66 50-seat CRJ200s and will add 34 larger dual-class regional jets including five 66-seat CRJ700s and 29 76-seat CRJ900s. Delta has reportedly allowed SkyWest to return 41 of the 66 CRJ200s financed by Delta without obligation. SkyWest will be responsible for the remaining 25 CRJ200s which it financed itself. [more - original PR]
