This two aircraft types looks very similar in terms of capacity. American Eagle was or is operating the Saab 340s and DL Connection the E-120. Which one of the two aircraft types is the best in terms of reliability and direct operation costs ?
I fly on the 340 quite often here in AK in sometimes pretty harsh conditions probably over 100flight segments. I have only experienced one mechanical delay in flying on them and it was a problem with the flaps. A nice aircraft none the less the 340 is. I havent flown a 120 yet, but have also heard nice things.
