Regional Airlines And Stored AC.

Wed Apr 06, 2005 2:12 am

I was thinking a little bit and this question came to mind, with fuel prices still rising and the Financial status of certain airlines would they ever consider reactivating some of their Mothballed Turboprops to supplement their RJ's? I mean the AC could help the airlines also because they are paid for right?

Just was wondering.

Not really. Very few turboprops are owned outright and most are still on lease status.
