Royal -

I heard some of these ex-Continental Express machines are in San Antonio.

When are they entering freight dog service with Express? Which routes?

I have no clue. Sure some fellow a.netters must know loads more.

I called Empire Airlines today, but couldn't get an answer. Empire is going to use some of them to replace F27's flying here in the Pacific Northwest. The target entry date was "early 2003" which I think is now  Smile

I work at Fedex and I haven't heard of any service start date for the ATR's. I think the first few have to fly to Italy for the door mod.the rest might be done in SAT at Dee howard's old base. Then they will have to be certified etc. I can't see early '03 maybe early 04'.

I've got friends at Empire, and they have recieved 2 ATRs so far and they are in the process of conversion. I'll try and get the N-numbers.
