Northwest Airlines has already updated their schedules to reflect the 5 Avro RJs that will be pulled out of service. GFK
is one city that NWA has pulled ARJ service out of, starting Jan 2004.
As for the comfort of the NWAs ARJs, well, there's almost no argument that these are very nice. Very wide seats, extra legroom, spacious cabin, etc.
