I was just wondering with Horizon replacing their CR7's with Q400's are some of their routes in jeopardy because the Q400 doesn't have the range like the CR7 does. I think that mainly Mexican routes would be in trouble and probably would be flown by AS if the Q400 couldn't make it.

The CR7 retirements are more or less on hold I think, do to the lack of demand for the frames. Some of the NW-Cali markets are just as long as the Mexican flying, so who knows.


When in doubt, one B pump off

As of now it sounds like Bombardier is going to force Horizon to take delivery of a few Q400s that they built for them but Horizon has delayed delivery on. I believe the snot rocket that's been seen around TUS is one of them.

It will be interesting to see what they do with the jets that those Q400s are supposed to replace. Can they find a buyer? If not, do they keep flying those CR7s or do they send them to the desert for storage? It will be interesting to see what they do. I hope they keep them flying, as I've got several friends on furlough from QX and while unemployment benefits in Oregon are pretty good, they all want to get back in the air.



It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.
