It seems Jazz will also be increasing it's fleet of DH8-300's early next year. My understanding is that they are used aircraft coming from another carrier. So far it appears that two DH8-300 aircraft will be added. Considering how old the DH8-100's are getting to be,and the higher cost of operating that model(37 seats)compared to the 50 seats in the 300,it's a wise move. I don't imagine there are too many 300's around that are available for lease?

Why wasn't it delivered to Jazz originally?
|Quoting CGOJZ (Reply 8):|
The CRJ705 is the former demonstrator C-FGND which was originally built for Jazz, hence the compatible configuration.

Quoting 9252fly (Reply 9):
I was under the impression that they would want to keep at least a small holding in order to have some influence?
I expect they feel the Capacity Purchase Agreement gives them enough influence so they can monetize their remaining shares of Jazz before they wind up ACE.
|Quoting Robsawatsky (Reply 15):|
The CPA lasts until at least 2015. That plus other agreements between Jazz and AC/ACE mean Jazz will remain beholden to AC/ACE due to substantial, but not necessarily all, services for:
- Aircraft financing
- Ground handling
- Aircraft maintenance
- Reservation systems
Plus the Jazz Board and executive are all dominated by AC/ACE links.
Jazz won't be making any independent strategic decisions for a while yet even if ACE owns 0%.
