What does each Regional Code-share System look like amongst the major Airlines. Particularly, if they was broken down by partner and aircraft, and compared with Mainline fleet size. The following pages illustrate those reports, and will automatically be updated by the website as the database is continually refreshed.

We are seeing a lot of realignment amongst Regional Carriers and it is being circulated that most Mainline carriers want a diversity of only a few regional’s; between 3-5. One carrier that does the bread and butter, and that is able to run significant lift and perks when needed (more expensive). Two Mediocre carriers that may not have much flexibility or perks but add diversity (for a reasonable cost). Finally, one carrier that is cheap and subsequently small, unable to offer the lift or perks other carriers do for additional expense. This final carrier’s purpose is to keep the other carriers in check financially.
Perks might be considered Econ Fuel Profiles, Single Engine Taxi, special airport qualifications etc. Significant lift could be considered having sufficient capacity to handle most of the seasonal swings in traffic.
The Data is from the websites database and is fairly current but as always its difficult to keep it updated to the month, so their may be slight errors in it. Hopefully it will be of help to those trying to determine where their regional might find itself over time with respect to the future of the 50 seat aircraft, and the 3-5 regional codeshare model.
The following is not the websites but is a very good resource on past trends.
