This two aircraft types looks very similar in terms of capacity. American Eagle was or is operating the Saab 340s and DL Connection the E-120. Which one of the two aircraft types is the best in terms of reliability and direct operation costs ?

the saab-340 is actually the safest commercial aircraft ever, so im going to have to go with it.

I have never flown on the 340, but have flown the 120 at least 100 times. While the plane is starting to age like the 340 is, I would fly on the 120 anytime, anywhere, anyhow.

But if you offered me free tickets on the 340, I would jump just as quick. I like the look of the 120 a little better though.

Both aircraft have similar missions, and similar capabilities, but from what I understand, the PW118B on the EMB is the winner as far as reliability.

I fly on the 340 quite often here in AK in sometimes pretty harsh conditions probably over 100flight segments. I have only experienced one mechanical delay in flying on them and it was a problem with the flaps. A nice aircraft none the less the 340 is. I havent flown a 120 yet, but have also heard nice things.

I've heard EMB 120s have a terrible time dealing with ice.

I flew on a Saab 340 last summer and I really enjoyed the trip! What a wonderful small aircraft!

As a crew guy on a saab now, I enjoy it. But also, ive never personally travelled on a Brasillia.

So with my limited knowledge of the EMB-120, im gonna default to the Saab.
Great sturdy aircraft.
