It looks like ASA's ATR-72's are only going to be operated only to HHH effective December 1st.

There was an ASA ATR-72 that flew from Richmond to MCO yesterday. I thought that was unusual, I am not sure the last time I seen an ATR-72 at MCO from ASA. Eagle flew them years ago here.

They have 12 ATR's. Are we saying that HHH will be the only station to see the ATR? What are they going to do with all the a/c? Retirement maybe?

You would think because of fuel costs, these things would have stuck around a little longer...

What are some of the other current AT7 routes out of ATL besides HHH? I know MOB is getting an overnight turn in June. I'm going to try to catch a ride on one before they are put out to pasture.

I'm only asking because I don't know, but does the ATR have the range for that route?

also, we see them in TYS every so often subbing for a CR7


Is it bad that I get excited to see even a CRJ overfly? Man, what this place does to you

ATRs have very short range, in a large country like the US, even some hops which would cause no problem for an RJ or Dash 8, ATRs (especially 72s) are lacking. At MTOW, they only have a range of 700-800nm, which whilst seeming enough for purpose gives reduced flexibility compaerd to a faster, longer ranged prop, like the Dash 8 Q series

DL really needs to look into the Q400 to replace them plus some CR1s and CR2s. Some routes out of ATL should be Q400 over RJs.


yep.

It's definitely pushing it. AA's longest AT7 route is MIA-CZM, some 100 miles shorter than RIC-MCO.

Are there any talks of ASA getting Q400's? Or are there any other regionals considering the Q400? What are the chances of any of the Saabs, Jetstreams, Beechs and Dorniers to get "resurrected" from the desert and fly again with a carrier in the US in lieu of record fuel costs? So many people couldn't wait to proclaim themselves as an all jet fleet...wonder if they regret that!

The ATRs are going to be phased out starting in July with them all being gone in December. As to the ATRs only being operated to HHH on December 1st, it's probably because there will only be 3 or 4 left in the fleet.  Smile

If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

 checkmark  Sometimes the CRJ isn't a viable replacement for the CR7. I've seen the ATR in TLH, VPS, and even DAB; along with a few other cities.

Wow. For years they've been saying they will phase them out but I guess it will finally happen...

That means no more service to HHH, right? Or can the SF3 make it to ATL?  stirthepot

Looks like AVL is one of the last to lose, with the last two AVL-ATL ATR flights on Nov 30.

Everything after that is Sunday-Friday 5x CRJ-100, and 3x Saturday with a CRJ-700 in the mix.

It's a shame these creatures are finally going away...

To be technical ASA does not have any CRJ-100's only -200's, OH does have -100's and -200's however.

How odd, DL claims otherwise...



They should correct that..

You are right they should, because we don't have any -100's. I think they have it coded wrong but I doubt they'll fix it anytime soon. I've noticed for a while that DL put's our -200's as -100's but I can't tell you why.
