Any idea on which airline ordered the planes? My bet would be Air Baltic as they recently stated that they are retiring the Fokker 50 and already have 8 Q400's in the fleet. Or possibly an airline such as Wideroe has decided to expand with further Q400's.
InterSky, a small airline providing service from FDH to TXL, DUS, CGN, VIE amongst others signed a codeshare deal with Air Berlin and wants to replace its 4 Dash 8-300 with Q400's or ATR-72, according to the cited article.
WARNING! The post above should be taken with a grain of salt! Furthermore, it may be slightly biased towards A.

BT is a risky bet, they had 4 Q400 options and they just got rid of F50, however their financial status (which is all over the news) is widely debated. However I would love them ordering some more Q400
Was my first thought as well. They are growing very successfully at BRN and they operate a good number of charter flights on behalf of other airlines. I also seem to remember reading about their future plans to acquire new Q400s. Hence, my suspicion it's them I guess lol
