And could I ask one question? Does NW Airlink have any CRJ's going to PIT from DTW anymore? They did but what happened?

Can't comment on the CRJ, haven't ever been on one...thats ok, I'll take a Saab over a CRJ anyday..(I know I'm in the minority)

No CRJ's on DTW-PIT. On the April schedule its 4 ARJ's and 2 DC-9-30's . The May schedule is 5 ARJ's and 1 DC-9-30. When was there ever, I though it was only DC-9's & ARJ's. I didn't think there ever was a CRJ on that route, but maybe shortly. They just put capacity where it fits best.

The CRJ's are not bad. Pretty much everything you would want in a big plane, wrapped up into a smaller package. They are all brand new and seat either 44 or 50 passengers and are capable of higher speeds and altitudes than turboprops. Where are you going on the CRJ?

I was on a NW CRJ for a short hop between Kalamazoo and Detroit last week. I was very impressed with the plane. My only quibble was that the windows were low and it was hard to get a nice view from my window seat at least when the plane was taxiing.

We use to fly to IT from DTW and then have it continue on to MEM. After 9/11 that run was dropped, we now bring aircraft through DTW and MEM with EVV and TYS.

As for our RJS, they are relatively new, some almost brand new, our oldest 44 seater is less then 4 months old and our oldest 50 seater is barely 2 years old. They have the sae seating arrangement as other CRJ operators. Its vry quiet and cnd has all leather seats, but th windows are very low as mentioned and you do have to bend slightly in order to use te LAv. Oly other complaint about it is that the air conditioning system is a pain, always keeps it way too cold in the back. Guess I shouldn't complain coming from the Saab where it was the norm tgo see at least one passenger or crew member to collapse from the heat during the summer.

Only additional comment is that every time I've done the DTW to PNS run it is 100% packed. They are actually usually asking for volunteers. I wish we did it more often, but th loads are amazingly high, not really sure why NWA only does it one a week, but I just fly what they tell me.

probably do to a lack of airplanes, NWA has us running those CRJs at the absolute max utilization, although we did have 5 aircraft recently damaged, 3 seriously, by jetbidges in DTW. Stil tryin ot get ground persona there up too speed.

Cv640 do you fly these things? I had a glimpse at the cockpit- it looked very cool. I really enjoyed my flight (as well as BOS-DTW-BOS legs on 757s) with Northwest. Unlike other airlines, they are much better than their reputation.

Very slick little planes. Dead quiet, leather seats. Even though its small, its a joy to ride in. Id take it over a 9, as much as I love them. You will enjoy it.
