U.S. Airways Express CRJ-900

U.S. AIRWAYS EXPRESS BOMBARDIER CRJ-900

So welcome to I think my first ever features request. This is for the US Airways Express CRJ-900. A few days ago I flew the US Airways 757-200 from Phoenix to Lihue and I realized that that livery is awesome and so cool compared to the boring gray AA livery. You may know that I live in the Philadelphia suburbs, so US Airways has a place in my heart as PHL was one of their big Hubs. Adding the US Airways CRJ-900 would allow you to fly to stunning airports like Seattle, Aspen and Burlington from American Airlines hubs. Instead of always flying the American Eagle CRJ-900 you could have this to fly instead.

ABOUT U.S. AIRWAYS Source
US Airways was founded as All American Aviation in 1937 before switching to become US Air in 1979. US Airways had a fleet of 338 In their mainline jets and 275 aircraft under their U.S Airways Express Subsidiary. 51 of these 275 were Bombardier CRJ-900s, 47 of which were flown by Mesa Airlines and 4 by SkyWest. U.S. Airways and U.S. Airways Express had hubs in Philadelphia, Charlotte, Phoenix and at Washington-National airport. All of these are now American Airlines hubs after US Airways and US Airways Express merges with American to become American And American Eagle. These CRJ-900s are now operated by SkyWest, Mesa and by PSA, mainly operating out of American’s hubs in Phoenix, Charlotte and Philadelphia, just as they did with U.S. Airways Express.

ABOUT THE CRJ-900 Source
The Bombardier CRJ family is a regional jet with two twin rear mounted engines. They are produced by Bombardier in Canada and the first flight was in May of 1999. The CRJ-900 sears between 76-90 people with a cruise speed of Mach .78 and a ceiling of 41,000 feet. The primary operators of the CRJ-900 are SkyWest, Mesa, PSA, and Endeavor. The first 3 operated for US Airways Express and now American Eagle. The CRJ-900 has a range of just over 1550 Miles (2494 km) which allows it to serve low volume, medium distance flights.

I hope you can consider dropping a vote for this amazing livery, that would only add to the vast American Airlines/US Airways Infinite Flight Fleet

only if I had a vote for this :(

Nice topic! I actually flew on (2) US Airways CRJ9’s before they went under, N929LR and N907FJ.

As much as this would be cool, the airplane is operated by Mesa now (judging by the LR on registration) which flies for AmericanEagle

So nostalgic, I miss swing them a lot at PHL, and there was an old one but Marc closed it for me because it didn’t have much detail and was old

I would vote for this, but it doesn’t make too much sense to have it. US Airways is no longer an airline and it wouldn’t make sense to add another aircraft livery to an airline that doesn’t really exist anymore. I love the livery, but I don’t think it’s too necessary.

Why should that be the case? I love flying defunct airlines as much as the next person, but what about retro-style events? People wanting to fly an old airline for the novelty’s sake? Why do you think the 747-200, DC-10 and Passenger MD-11 was developed at all?
