ASA Emb-120s

Tue Jul 15, 2003 11:47 am

I know for a fact that ASA Embrarer 120 Brizialia's are to be phased out in the near future, howerver I would like to know if ASA still operates this type on any routes.

As of today I know of at least one doing a DFW-IAH run. At least I think it was today.

They are also still doing DFW-ILE runs until the end of the month.

As far as I know the ATR-72 will keep flying w/ ASA for the foreseeable future.

There has been talk about bringing in the Dash300 props to replace 72s, but this hasn't even reached the peliminary stages. Its obvious the ATR is safe for know w/ ASA

I still see a few here @ ATL, not sure where they're flying them to (as I looked on the Delta website, and none of the cities that have had EMB-120 service out of ATL seems to have it now), more than likely, they could be spare a/c.

Currently, all ASA Embraer flying is being done out of DFW, with flights to IAH (3x, plus 2 CRJs), ILE (3), TUL (5), and ICT (1, plus 2 ER3s and a CRJ). All Embraers will be gone effective 1 August, when ER3s replace the EM2s on the IAH, TUL, and ICT runs. ILE is being discontinued due to the short runway there that cannot handle RJs.

The ATRs will be around for a while, as I have heard that for some of the shorter, higher-density routes, are more profitable operating a prop than an RJ. Also, the time difference is negligable (only an extra 5-10 minutes on the prop), so the ATR works better. I wouldn't be surprised to see some Dash 8-300 and -400 replace the ATRs when they get older, since DL has had a very good relationship with Bombardier. The other possibility would be DL ordering some ATR-72-500s to replace the -200s.
