Speaking for Comair....some cities don't really need the 10 extra seats and some cities might be more weight restriced than others (10 less seats and the pax baggage=more payload margin), for example. In MHT
, Comair uses the 40 seaters to LGA
, which is good, because it makes our loads look better (easier to fill). Cities like New Haven, CT
(HVN) need the 40s due to their very short runway. Even with the extra margin, they are still unable to fill the aircraft to capacity on hot and humid days.
P.S. I am looking forward to ASA returning to MHT
in September! I just wish it wasn't for one flight a day...
