Pre-owned aircraft entering the Delta Connection fleet with 2 in December, the rest gradually phased in by May 2013

question: how many pilots does it take to staff 12 airplanes at a place like XJT? as in, how many jobs does this equate to?

Airplanes don't come out of thin air, especially when YOY capacity is down.

Actually, I think Derg was implying the opposite. It's less than a zero sum game right now.
We're not adding capacity on the Delta side, if you look at the numbers.

So new jets, on the delta side, are a net increase at "Airline A" and a net decrease at "Airline B"

Like when people say "They're having retirements at Delta, here comes the flood!" Well we're parking jets and taking expanded liberties with domestic and international codeshares to make up for the loss of bodies. Alaska Airlines and the Air FRONNNNZ conglomerate loves us long time, GI.

I didn't realize that 9E's 900's were in play yet.
It was part of the 34 large RJs for 66 200s deal. All but 16 of the 34 have been delivered, and Pinnacle is returning 16 900s to Bombardier

tl;dr: no shortage, now get back into your Brasilia. (Ya know? I like looking at the islands from 8,000'.)
