What Should ASA Do About The EMb-120

Sat Nov 10, 2001 2:21 am

ASA has had the Emb-120's for too long. I think that they should retire all their Brasilias and replace them with Emb-135 regional jets. All the people I talk to say they are tired of the little puddle jumpers (props) and want Jets.
WHat do you feel about this situation?

I flew on one recently. It was old and tired looking inside. It was alos in that same old silver livery. It was terrible looking. I then flew on a brand new CL-601 RJ Regional and it was great, but freezing inside. Yes, they do need to get rid of the EMB-120s and maybe an alternatve to that could be maybe just more CL 601 RJs. I can't really think of a non-prop to replace the EMB-120, maybe the ERJ 135 could work.

I also think that ASA should retier all there Emb120.
But they have probably no money to offer new planes.

Since it is a subsidiary of DL, wouldn't DL give them some money and aide in them buying or leasing new AC?
