Very interesting article with some good points about the regional airline industry.

One regional that will survive is QX. Can you say "Regional Propjets"? This is a major key for lower operating costs. Very smart move for QX. Robert NWDC10

The regionals just need to sell out all their flights, and if that means cutting a flight out per day, than so be it.

I personally would rather travel on a prop plane for a half hour flight than a CRJ. Just my opinion.
