It started out as mainline DC-9's, then switched to mainline CRJ's, then to CP - affiliated F28's, then back to mainline CRJ's with occasional mainline A319 substitutions, and since the fall of 2006 Jazz CRJ's.

I think it was AC mainline when they first started service to MSP since the CRJ-100/200s were then part of the mainline fleet and flown by mainline AC crews. It was only later that they were transferred to Jazz.

Quoting MEL (Reply 3): I have also seen mainline 737-200s in Minneapolis,
Hey, I flew one of those ... might even have been me!
I recall one of the flights as it was an equipment substitution for a CRJ. The B737 was in the all J 48 seat ACJetz configuration. As I was standing at the cockpit door saying goodbye to the folks, one of the passengers said to me .."I had heard that these small regional jets were kind of uncomfortable, but I found this to me very comfortable!" "Glad you liked it ma'am!"
