American Eagle ATR-42 Question

Fri Nov 10, 2006 3:03 am

I just noticed that the ATR-42 is no longer in the American Eagle fleet. Does anyone know when this type was withdrawn from the fleet?

Quoting 28L28L (Thread starter):
Does anyone know when this type was withdrawn from the fleet?

Eagle (Executive, actually) determined that they didn't need the 46-seat props which were not the most reliable and not the most economically efficient. With similar unit operating costs, the 68-seat Super ATRs were kept instead.

Last notices that I know of these aircrafts in American Eagle comes from 2004.

AT4's were situated at SJU and flew to Beef Island, Punta Cana, Saint Maarten, Saint Thomas and Pointe-a-Pitre.

One of AT4's is now operating for Tarom, other with FedEx Feeder,...
