They also mention that Regional clearly prefers Embraer
Well, I don't understand why the AF group doesn't globalise the aircraft purchasing, the 3 commuter airlines are 100 % owned by AF (Brit air, RÃ©gional and City Jet), they have quite strange fleets (Including BAE-146 for City Jet and fokkers for the 2 others) and they need to replace all these A/Cs in the next years. I can't understand why they don't order 30-35 aircrafts of the same manufacturer, their negociating power would be stronger and the maintenance cost lower ...
To any North American carrier, send us a regular flight in MRS !!!!!
