Quoting ATLFlyer323 (Reply 1): I know this has been talked about before, but what does anyone here see Bahamas air doing about their aging fleet?
I interviewed Henry Woods, the CEO of Bahamasair, in Feb 08. The interview was published in the Oct 08 issue of Airways. When I spoke with Mr. Woods, he said Bahamasair planned to replace their 737-200s with 737-700s, Canadair RJ-900s, or Embraer 190s. The Dash 8s would be replaced with smaller aircraft in the 30-34 seat range.
Bahamasair wants an aircraft with longer range than the 737-200, so they can resume service to the US Northeast, and an aircraft smaller than the Dash 8 - 300, because the Dash 8 - 300 is too large for many of UP's inter island flights.
When I spoke with Mr. Woods, he said Bahamasair hoped to place the fleet replacement order by the end of 2008. However, I'm sure the recession has forced UP to put the fleet replacement plan on hold.
