i HAVE BEEN ACCESSING FLIGHT DETAIL INFO FROM ACA JET DBA AS DL CONNECTION AND ALL THEIR FLIGHTS OUT OF INDIANPOLIS TO LGA HAVE BEEN FULL AND THEY HAVE BUMPED UP TO 14 BAGS OFF THE THE FLIGHTS DUE TO WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS...SO I GUESS THE PLANE DOESNT HAVE MUCH RANGE AS COMPARED TO OTHER RJ'S...IT REMINDS ME OF THE DAYS WHEN I WORKED WITH METRLINERS AND WE WERE ALWAYS LEAVING BAGS BEHIND..WHAT GOOD IS AN AIPPLANE IF IT CANT LEAVE WITH FULL PASSENGER/LUGGAGE LOAD..THEY NEED TO DEVELOPE AN EXTENDED RANGE VERSION

Where did you find this data on ACJet? I think that's ridiculous. I agree... what good is a JET if it can't take a full load, on a short-haul flight. I remember boarding up J41s operating IAD-CHS and having to bump off up to 5 passengers because of weight restrictions. We would bump off passengers before bags, as PAWOBs were very high, and we couldn't guarantee the bags would be sent down on the next flight.

IND-LGA isn't even that long a flight (probably just under 2 hrs).

Looks like Faidor have really missed a big opportunity here. Aside from entering the market a full 2 years BEHIND Embraer and Bombardier, cancelling development of the 428JET earned the enmity of quite a few airlines.

The 328JET does have shorter legs compared to the ERJ and CRJ but it has vastly superior climb and short field performance.
