Wasn't it a bit over a year ago that United announced that 50 pax jets were unprofitable and began to reduce their fleets. Yet now I read that they are purchasing 40 of the 200s off the secondary market?

IMHO, this sh..box ghetto bird provides the worst experience in the fleet.

Say it isn't so....

UA did sign a contract so they get the entire Air Wisconsin fleet.

Perhaps UA should consider the Bombardier C Series 100

So, maybe the forty mentioned in this article are those you refer to?

probably, we're getting ready to enter a post-CRJ-200 world as those airframes reach the end of their life. They have 45,000 cycle AD that pretty much functions as the lifelimit on the airframe.

Who cares... no one with any sense doesn't fly United. There are MANY better airlines......

CR200 and RJ145 need to both be hauled out behind the barn and put out of their misery. They are both HORRIBLY uncomfortable unless you are a miniature person....

So here is my dilemma
Given my druthers, I would prefer a non-stop on a Kenjet or it's evil spawn rather than having to connect in ORD, EWR or IAD. Once upon a time, I had such service from CLE and didn't care what I was flying (Dash 8's, Emb-120s, or RJs) but now I don't have that option any longer.

So we can spend our time debating how awful the RJs are (and they are not a walk in the park when flying CLE-IAH on one) but the alternative of not having any direct air service at all is even less appealing to me.
As far as I'm concerned, UA can bring all of their Evil Spawns to CLE and re- institute the direct service they dumped 2 years ago any time they wish 😉

Yes there are. unfortunately, at least for me they either, don’t service my area, my destinations, or do so cost effectively.

I had the misfortune of my first CRJ-200 flight to EWR a week ago. I'll take an ERJ-145 over the Canadian torture jet any day.

I'm not a fan of the CRJs, but I don't mind an RJ145 as long as I have an A seat. They're not the most comfortable, but sometimes it is a choice between a regional jet or a long drive. I'm not much of a road-trip person.

I get it if it's the only choice. And, as a skinny dude, I can survive on the A side. But, I won't miss them when they're gone. I guess if the FAs actually believed me when I said my bag fit in the overhead bins (it clearly does)I might have more love for the 145s.

I don't have much to say, but you can usually find me saying it here.

The A/C itself has a 65,000 cycle life limit imposed by the FAA, but there is a SDVI special detail visual inspection of basically the whole aircraft that has to be done between 40,000 and 45,000 cycles .It's a multi-million dollar inspection, so at that point the planes are scrap.
