Reading a statement by Lufthansa concerning the launch of the Lufthansa Regional concept, I came across the following statement: "... in addition to the exchange of know-how, all will benefit, for example, from a joint reserve planning of aircraft, thus guaranteeing a high level of reliability in flight operations." Does anyone know if other mainline carriers have a joint reserve for their regional carriers as well? If so, how is it carried out, i.e. does one regional carrier keep back-up planes for all the regionals and where are those planes based? I am particulary interested in North American carriers. Thanks in advance for any infos!
