As has been rumored Pinnacle has agreed to acquire an additional 15 Q400s for CO to be operated by Colgan air as CO Connection. This will bring the CO Connection fleet of Q-400s up to 30, they also have options for an additional 15.

They have not announced where the aircraft will be based but it will most likely be EWR where they currently are operating, the 74 seat Q400s offer a significant capacity increase along with significant savings vs 50 seat ERJs at EWR. CO plans to continue to grow their passenger traffic at EWR without adding to congestion, they're doing this by adding aircraft like the Q400s, 737-900ERs and 757-300s.

FYI..
By adding these 15 additional Q400s to their EWR operation CO would be able to replace everyone of their ERJ flights on routes of 500 miles or less from EWR with Q400s, the 500-600 mile range is where the Q400s begins to loose it's operational advantage vs the ERJ.

Can someone explain to me one thing? The Q 400's have a seating capacity of 74, and the CRJ/ERJs have a capacity of 50. Why are the Q 400's considered Continental Connection, and not Continental Express? I always thought Connection was for at risk flying on smaller capacity ac (1900, Dash 8, much like Commutair in CLE).

CO Express is ExpressJet. Everyone else is CO Connection.

COEX is all jet, and I think they want to continue to promote it that way. Also

Chautauqua is also COEX, however I think with CO and Expressjets recent agreement COEX will become exclusively Expressjet.

CoEx is all jet and they are marketed differently. Currently CHQ and EXJ are two different Continental Express carriers. Co Connections is turboprops.
