I hope this hasn't been discussed but the Continental Express Dash 8 Q400 are loaded into the timetable.

eff. 2/4

ALB 2 flights
ROC 1 flight
PIT 2 flights to 5 flights in March
BWI 3 flights

I tried to check most cities within 300 miles and this is all I could find.

I think all of those cities make sense and were among the routes predicted in the previous threads on the subject.

Can't wait to see those birds take to the skies. Should be a profitable and worthwhile operation in my opinion

I'm excited for these great additions to the CO fleet. I'm hoping to see a few in GSO, though I doubt that'll happen, as I think the route is a pretty strong performer on the RJ. Then again, the Q400 would add some cheap, extra capacity...

Funny, i'll take a Q400 over an RJ anyday, much more comfortable IMHO.

I'm hoping they put them into YYZ... problably won't happen but hey  Smile

I hear the Qs are actually quite comfortable... I found it comfortable on a Q200, and I can only imagine a Q400 would be more comfortable.

Add me to the Q400 fanclub. Much nicer than the equivalent-sized jets.

Just an FYI... on CO's website, the following message is displayed below the flight info when trying to book a flight on the Q:
Subject to receipt of government operating authority. Reservation for this flight may be cancelled without penalty until authority received.

Just checked the 3/26 schedule:

RDU goes 2x 733, 2x RJ, 3x Q4
ORF goes 5x Q4
CLT remains all RJ
GSO remains all RJ

I agree. I thought CO wanted to try and keep these planes closer to home (New England, Upstate, PA, etc.).

It may have to do with a capacity boost rather than a predetermined range to keep within..

Also, checking the schedules.. I saw the Q4 in CMH.. but it does look like RDU is the furtherest South.. RDU and ORF are the only Southern states they will be operating (uhm.. unless you include MD which MD people don't.. so good ridance to them)... and CMH appears to be the fartherest West...

What surprises me is the fare difference on 3/26 one way... Q's just available full-Y, but other fares are nearly 140 dollars less

Q400s are great aircraft. Very comfortable indeed.

I'd take a Q400 over a CRJ200 any day, too.

I love the Q400s, personally.

Continental Express Dash 8 Q400

Just to nitpick.. but these are Continental Connection and not Continental Express... the "Express" name is for the Regional Jet operations only and Connection is for the Turboprops....

CMH is nearly 465 miles - looks to be the longest scheduled CO Q400 route so far.

So we could see them in cities like DTW, YYZ, etc.....

- The Q400 is a great machine, I'd take one of these over a CRJ. In addition, it makes a nice change from all those dull CRJ & ERJ's flying so many routes these days.

for now , full Y inventory is all that shows in availability until final authority is granted to discourage too many advance sales!

I bet in time for summer travel they will add the Q400 to New England vacation spots such as ACK, BGR, PWM, etc. Also I find it odd they haven't included PVD in the first round of Q cities.

Yes, Q400 EWR-CMH.

Q200, not Q400 CMH-CLE.

25 Lemurs : Anyone know what seat layout CO is going with for these? Is it all-Y, or F/Y mix?
26 Post contains images Justlump : Just wait...You may just get your wish. BTW, the first Q400 is to be delivered to Colgan tomorrow (03Jan).
27 MasseyBrown : The schedule lists the Q400 as the fastest CMH-EWR flight eastbound and second fastest westbound. CO may be testing the market in CMH to see just how
28 Skyexramper : Quoted from the Continental site: "Note: Flight 3252 is serviced by a non-jet equipment type. Wheelchairs cannot be accommodated in the cargo hold on
29 Mcamargo : I think that if a wheelchair can fit in an ERJ then that it would fit on the Q. But does anyone know for sure?
30 Saxman66 : Anyone know who's operating these turboprops for CO? Colgan?
31 Airbusaddict : Is EWR the only place getting the Q's?
32 Bok269 : Colgan it is. For the time being. From what I have hear, other hubs will be getting them as well.
33 Justlump : Look for the Q400 to begin IAH operations in 2009. The initial LOI between CO and the Pinnacle Group requested 15 A/C for the EWR operation. However,
34 PVD757 : I'm sort of surprised that PVD wasn't among the initial markets to get the Q400 as well. I'm sure we,re in the plans somewhere along the way. At only
35 Rikkus67 : agreed AAmd11 ! I have flown all series of Dash 8 / Q series and all series of CRJ's. Of all of those aircraft, only the CRJ 100 & 200 (neck fatigue
36 Lemurs : I hate quoting myself, but the question continues to go unanswered. I suspec they'll be all-Y to keep a consistent product with CO Connection/CO Expr
37 Rampart : I know there must be a good reason, but what was the justification to use the Q400 rather than the ATR, which CO used at EWR (and other places)? Isn't
38 NorthStarDC4M : COExpress retired the last ATR42s years ago, theres no commonality or maintenance reason for the ATR over the Q400. And in any case it isn't the old
39 Eagle11 : All Y I believe
40 Rampart : Thanks for that. I didn't know who was going to be flying for them, maybe I assumed it was ExpressJet. However, I don't believe Coglan fly -200s, at
41 NorthStarDC4M : sorry, my bad, the -200s are Commutair... still COCon... but not Colgan.
42 KstateinALB : I think it is a good improvement for ALB, being that it will be a 30 seat increase per flight, keeping in tune with the airport authority saying that
43 Justlump : Sorry guys, change in plan. Due to weather/holiday etc., the first Q400 will now be delivered on Monday the 7th of January. It will commence proving
44 BoeingPride800 : No Q400 for SYR?
45 WestIndian425 : Colgan doesn't operate the Dash 8-200 or 100. That would be CommutAir out of CLE.
