What U.S. Cities Will Be All RJ?

Wed Aug 15, 2001 1:42 am

What cities do you think will become all RJ's within the next 10-15 years?

Here is my list: ICT, LNK, DSM, CID, MLI, SGF, FAR, FSD

I know I probably left a bunch out, but these are the ones that come to mind.

GRR is kind of iffy. A lot of airlines are pulling mainline service, but I cannot imagine NWA will. Very strange, since GRR is a large metropolitan area of almost 1.5M.

Ive heard that American Eagle and the other airlines that go from ISP to BOS are going to switch from turboprops to RJ's (Continental Express, Comair, and Atlantic Southeast Airways already uses RJ's at ISP)

5280AGL (cute name, sounds like a mile-high club, or something ) will become all RJ's within the next..

I guess you mean scheduled services, and from among the top two or three tiers of carriers, that is. Since below that level there'll probably always be some guys at airports like those offering not just charter but maybe even with scheduled services with Metroliner or Raytheon or Beechcraft-type commuter turboprops, probably on routes 200 miles or less, but maybe even up to 500 miles or less for more sparsely-populated parts of the U.S. like Montana. Also, I wonder if you consider a 717 a regional, or mainline jet. Since if its sales take off I bet you'll see a lot of those airports get served by it.


Having said that though, definitely RJs continuing to make inroads, they're deployin' 'em as fast as they can make them, it seems.

If not for Delta, Mobile would be there already. All they get are CRJs and ERJs and DL MD88, 727

How about LGA? Last few times I've been there I could not believe the # of rj. (And yes, I am joking about it being all rj)

TYS, AGS (nearly there now), MGM (see AGS), TLH, CAE, JAN, MOB, VPS (especially if AirTran bolts to PNS), PNS (if AirTran doesn't bolt to there), MLB, GNV (nearly there already), BTR, OKC. So many more are on track for RJ service only its quite staggering.
