Embraer S.A. and SkyWest, Inc. have confirmed a firm order for seven E175 jets. The aircraft will be flown by SkyWest Airlines under a Capacity Purchase Agreement (CPA) with Alaska Airlines. The value of the firm order, which will be included in Embraer?s 2014 fourth-quarter backlog, is estimated at USD 301 million, based on 2014 list prices.

These aircraft are part of SkyWest?s previous order for 100 (40 firm and 60 reconfirmable), E175 current generation E-Jets - with an additional 100 options - placed in May 2013, taking the firm order number to a total of 47. The E175s for Alaska Airlines will be configured with 76 seats including 12 First Class seats. Deliveries are schedule to begin in the second semester of 2015.

There's zero chance that this stops at 7 planes. Got Scope?

Kaaaaaa--smack Freeturd! One question about the E175s. Will they be added to the current CR7s used at AK, or will they replace the CR7s?

SEATTLE – Alaska Airlines announced it is expanding its partnership with SkyWest Airlines with the addition of three new destinations from Alaska's Northwest hubs. Flying on new Embraer E175 jets, Alaska will begin offering daily nonstop service starting July 1 between Seattle and Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Seattle and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Portland, Oregon and St. Louis.

What about the jobs at SKYW?

What about them? I rather those 175s be operated by Alaska Airline pilots under the terms of their collective bargaining agreement. Those are better compensated jobs at a better company.

Jobs at SKYW are not appropriately compensated pilot jobs.

Well I have been looking for HOURS and have not been able to find those ever elusive Alaska E175 rates to determine exactly how inferior the SKYW pilots are being compensated. Fortunately, AMR has an E190 rate to compare it to:

E190 99 seats -> 12yr : 123/hr (airlinepilotcentral.com & seatguru.com)
E175 76 seats -> 20yr : 114/hr (airlinepilotcentral.com)

Max pay difference: 9/hr
Pay per seat: 1.5 $/seat/hr (SKYW) vs 1.24 $/seat/hr (AMR)
Pay per seat (SKYW normalized to 12yrs "AMR top rate") 1.22 $/seat
Normalized difference: 2 CENTS/seat/hr

I hope you plan on lecturing the AMR guys about how "appropriate" their ERJ pay rates are as well.

See the previous post on how absurd it is to suggest they are "better compensated". And company quality is a rather subjective descriptor. I would be willing to bet a majority of the pilots at SKYW would say it isn't that bad of a company to work for.

The AMR E190s are really USAir E190s, and their lower rates are because of their squabble between the East and West pilots. According to APC, the max for them are $123 an hour for the Capt (12th year), and $83 an hour for a 12th year FO. Not great.

Other E190 operators include JetBlue and Republic (who use theirs for Casino charters). JetBlue E190s max out in the 12th year at $170 an hour for the Capt, and $115 an hour for a 12th year FO (probably not gonna happen). Republic has a terrible pay rate for theirs ($119 an hour on a 19 year scale, and $37 an hour max for any FO)


Looks like JB has the best E190 rates, and those are just slightly larger than E175s. AA will probably be getting a raise soon, so their current rates are temporary. By contrast, DL's smallest mainline plane is the famous 717, with 88 coming as of now (50 delivered so far), and as of Jan 1st of 2015, the 12th year Capt rate will be $195 an hour.

It's not all about pay rates. I don't know why you and other pilots always look at just pay rates. Your airline isn't even at the top of the compensation ladder among regionals and you think it stacks up to Alaska Airlines?


See the previous post on how absurd it is to suggest they are "better compensated". And company quality is a rather subjective descriptor. I would be willing to bet a majority of the pilots at SKYW would say it isn't that bad of a company to work for.

See my post above on how it's absurd to simply compare pay rates. As for quality of companies, yes it's subjective. I never said Skywest pilots would say it's a bad place to work. But I would be willing to bet that the majority of them would rather work for Alaska than Skywest.
