I was in Rhodes earlier this year, and I saw a BAE 146 jetliner... I was very surprised when I saw it b/c it has 4 engines. I dont know, but it seems that to put four engines on a smaller plane like that is wasteful... I know if it wasnt worth it, then the airlines would not purchase them, but could anyone name some reasons why Airlines choose the 146 with 4 engines vs. the similar model with two larger ones.
