    As reported by Dan Webb over at Things in the Sky it looks like Republic will be moving the E190s out of the F9 fleet and into service with DL. F9 flyers will see more E145 and Q400 aircraft in the near term. The E145s will fly out of MKE and the Q400 will continue to service the smaller Colorado markets such as Aspen. The A318 will be out of the F9 fleet by the end of 2011, so I guess Grizwald will need to find a new tail.

    It is also sounding like the Bombardier CSeries will be destine for the F9 fleet as a A319 replacement. From Dan's article:

    Ouch.

    It has to be an interesting conflict to decide whether you are going to use the equipment that your customers seem to prefer for your own operations or to a direct competitor that outsources some operations to you. This is a bizarre industry in many ways.
