Are there any airlines in the USA which still operate 19-seaters such as the Dornier 228, Fairchild Metro II/III/23, Jetstream 31/32 or Beech 1900C/D? Thanks for any help.

I was flying to visit my brother over thanksgiving. I was on Minnesota and was flying to Albany, NY. On the stretch I was on continental express/comutair (I think). I was the only passenger on a Beech 1900D.

As stated above those carriers, along with Gulfstream and Great Lakes airlines operate the Beech 1900

The Metros are flown by one US carrier that I know if and right now I just can't think of their name. They operate out of TX and WY.

Jetstreams are still flown by Corporate Airlines out of Raleigh and St Louis

No DO228s that I know of, saw a number of them out of St Barts in the Caribbean, but none in US colors.

Do Lake Havasu Airlines still have their Do228?

Beech 1900 fly for the USAirways franchisees as well, I forgot which one, a friend of mine flew on one PIT-PKB last year.

There is no 'Lake Havasu Airlines' at the moment. In the three years I've live here, there has been all sorts of talk of starting a commuter carrier here...but it been just that...all talk. The last HII-based airline folded over ten years ago. Even then I'm not sure they flew the Do228. Regards.

Really? Safety cards for Lake Havasu Airlines Do228s??? Wow! I just learned something new about this bit of history. This requires some research on my part.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Thanks, Daniel, for this info. Regards.  Wink/being sarcastic

Continental Connection operated by Gulfstream International Airlines flies throughout Florida and the Bahamas with B1900s. I think they also have service out of San Juan as well.

Vision Air has several Do 228s at North Las Vegas Airport. There are also several Scenic Airlines Twin Otters there. Though these carriers are both mostly tour operators.

Yeah Mesa's subsidiary Air Midwest operates B1900s as US Airways Express out of MCI and PHL.

Just a correction, CommutAir operates as Continental Connection, not Continental Express.

The other Continental Connection carrier Gulfstream International Airlines operates B1900s also from FLL, TPA, and MIA.

I believe the SJU operation was dropped after the failure of TW's Focus City to generate strong pax traffic.

Don't foget Pan Am's Boston-Maine Airways flies J32s also from BWI. Plans are in the works to expand from SFB I believe.

The two that come to mind for me in the Upper Midwest are:

--Great Lakes Aviation (for United Express) operates B1900s around the midwest.

--Skyway Airlines (for Midwest Express) operates B1900s as well.

-Don't forget CC Air (USAirways Express...owned by Mesa)) operating J32's out of CLT.
-Peninsula Airways (Penair) in Alaska operates Metro III's.
-Also in Alaska you have Frontier Flying Services and Alaska Central flying B1900's. As well as ERA flying DHC6-300's.

From what I've been told the Jetstreams at CCAir have all been removed and they only have Dash 8s now.

United Express (Atlantic Coast) flies Jetstream32.
I flew these airplanes a couple of times and except for legroom which is terrible for a 6'3" guy like me, it's great.
That's what's flying is all about.

When you have seat 1B on the Jetstream32, you have a full view at the cockpit.
