Seeing that Air Wisconsin operated BAe 146s, I wonder why did they not order Avro RJX?

I suspect it was because the ARJ was not as economical as the CRJ or ERJs. I wish they would have though! I love the 4 engined beauty. I flew on their 146s a few times, and loved it.

Truthfully there was not a huge difference between the Avro and the 146, and the 146 were very well maintained so really there was no need to do so. They were both good airplanes though, and it was sad to see them go.

The BAe/Avro were also a little too large to be practical in the USA given the number of passengers they could carry due to mainline pilot scopes. For example, XJ had to configure their RJ85s down to 69 seats to meet NW's pilot scope at the time, but most of those same birds are now flying with 95 seats for WX in Europe. Considering DL has the most liberal scope by allowing 76-seat RJs today, that's still 19 fewer seats than the birds fly with in Europe. That's a lot of extra airplane to purchase and fly around without earning any additional revenue.
