Sorry the link above is in French.

Brit Air is in no hurry to place an order to replace their Fokker100s.
They will place their order , not before 2 years from now, examinating EMB170-190s , CRJ900s , RRJs , Avic ARJ21s.They do not mention Rekkof70.

They also mention that Regional clearly prefers Embraer

Well, I don't understand why the AF group doesn't globalise the aircraft purchasing, the 3 commuter airlines are 100 % owned by AF (Brit air, Régional and City Jet), they have quite strange fleets (Including BAE-146 for City Jet and fokkers for the 2 others) and they need to replace all these A/Cs in the next years. I can't understand why they don't order 30-35 aircrafts of the same manufacturer, their negociating power would be stronger and the maintenance cost lower ...
To any North American carrier, send us a regular flight in MRS !!!!!

I wonder too , why these three AF franchise partners do not place a common order.Understandable.
