My excitement at being able to fly 1-stop from IAD to TUL has been dashed. GPL has a press release on their website, saying they have leased "additional Fairchild Dornier 328-100 prop jets". In other words, puddle jumpers.
As much as I would enjoy having a 1-stop to TUL and back, if they use a puddle jumper on this route they can find another customer. I'll stick with AA. Changing planes at ORD or DFW may not be a grand experience, but at least I'll be on a jet.
This is really a bummer.
