RE: MRJ's Latest Problem: Getting The MRJ To The US

If this plane has a 2100km range in still air and with 90 passengers could it fly 2400km east bound and empty? If so you could fly the 2nd leg KUH-ATU which is right at 2400km. The rest of the trip would be all short hops. ATU only has a 6000 ft runway but this is an <acronym title="Royal Jordanian"...
