The new order with Horizon Air is to replace all the fokker aircraft by 2005. Do you think Horizon will start to retire there Dash-8 aircraft ?

FedEx....Do you think Horizon Air should order the 717-200 or the BAE-146-300.

No there are still to many very small airports that they fly into to get rid of all of the Dash-8. They might decrease the numbers of their fleet though

That is true espically around Washington State. The airports they fly to are small.

I do not see Horizon replacing their Dash-8's for a VERY long time! They have many Dash-8's on order and each new aircraft has a Head's Up Display (HUD) which allows a Catagory III landing.

Meaning a plane can land without being able to see ther runway at any time. This allows planes to takeoff and land in thick fog while other planes are grounded due to the lack of visibility. This HUD is very helpful in the area's where Horizion flies---mainly the northwest coast.

I think they should order the B717.
I like the BAE146 allot! I would rather
"fly" that! I guess Boeing is putting allot
of preasure on Horizon and Alaska to order
the B717. Boeing wants Alaska to repalce ther
MD80 with the 717. Who knows. But from what I
hear Horizon and the Bombardier company have
a "strong" relationship.

No I would not count of Horizon going any bigger any time soon. That would put them in the position of offering the same services on the same routes that Alaska does. And I think that is something that Alaska Air Group which owns both airliner would just as soon avoid.

Boeing may want as to purchase the 717 but I have heard that the move is to go to an all 737 fleet, apparently their borrowing a page from Herb Kellers book. That would leave them with the 737-200QC, 400, 700 and the 900. and really wouldn't be a bad deal for Boeing even though there would be a single 717
