Do you think Seattle to Portland could handle one of these?

Looks sweet. It would sure beat the Horizon Air Dash 8 that usually makes the trip. Might do a lot for relieving congestion on I-5 too!

Too bad we'll never see it.

Ya, I would much prefer this over the Dash-8. Maybe I'll do a Horizon 747 as well. With Delta leaving us we could use some big planes at PDX.

I've been on the SEA-PDX flight before - it isn't bad with a Dash 8. We wanted to see SEA and PDX while on vacation, so we got a $198 deal on CO - CLE-SEA-PDX on CO and Horizon. SEA-CLE back home.

How about putting it on the Portland-Seattle-Ketchikan-Wrangell-Petersburg-Juneau-Yakutat-Cordova-Anchorage route instead? Can you imagine that thing landing at the "Mudhole" Smith airport in Cordova? Awesome!

Hey (with the exception of Cle_tim), what's wrong with the Dash 8?  

Cheers!

Another fan of the Dash-8s  

Actually, I don't think the AS scheme looks too good on a 744...I think the MD-80 is the perfect aircraft for their colors.

The one reason it would not work from ANC - SEA like it does for Japan....
You could not fill one 744 in Alaska and have enough people to push it back.

I didn't mean for this to become an anti/pro Dash-8 forum. I have nothing against the Dash-8 as an airplane. I just don't like to fly prop. planes in general. As much as I love airplanes, I am a real chicken flyer. Because of that, I prefer the bigger planes. Less turbulance, etc... Hey, I think I will start that as a new topic.
