No US operators came to mind so I thought I would ask. There must be a lot in storage somewhere. There were a good number of operators a few years ago: Horizon, PSA, Air Wisky, and some upstarts. Guess deHavilland won out bigtime. The 328Jet isn't so hot either. Very few operators of that aircraft too. Soon I think just Skyway will after ACA gives them up.

PSA finally ditched their 328s? Thank God...I flew one from CAE to PHL last year and the thing was disgusting inside...the interior was beat to hell and back, the plane's weather radar crapped out halfway to PHL....altogether an experience I wouldn't want to repeat.

Apart from Corporate Do 328-100s there are no D38s in service in the USA. Most of them currently fly in Europe (ScotAirways, Air Alps, Cirrus Airlines and others), in South America (Club VIP, SATENA) and in Africa (Bristow Helicopters Nigeria, DANA).
In Asia there are currently no D38s in service AFAIK, however many FRJs (328JETs) are operated there (Hainan Airlines, Wanair).
In the past few weeks there were several rumours about 328-100 (D38) fleet additions:
° Aeropostal with 6+6
° Central Mountain Air with 2
° Sun Air with 8 + 2 options on the 328JET
Apart from that several otehr D38 deals (all used frames) are under negotiation as far as I understand.

Well if you want to see any of the PSA and Air Wisky ones...I counted around 10 on the ramp in OKC a couple weeks ago. I got a few picks of them, not airliners quality since it was from the rental. Anyone want to start an airline?
They were joined by an Alitalia MD-80 and a couple Champion 727s in for mx.
