Why did American Eagle get rid of the ATR 72/42

Hello,

I am planning on making a video on why American Eagle dumped their ATR aircraft. I am struggling to find information so any would help.

Thanks!

USA3000 wasn't a very large airline. I do remember being interested in them and making a video explaining the reason why they ceased operations.

Re: Airline History @ KISP

Due to Frontier attempting to operate flights from ISP to many places (i.e. Minneapolis, Detroit, New Orleans) and failing is a sign that there isn't a large market for those flights. American offers ISP-PHL to connect passengers anywhere, and that flight is usually full, but that doesn't mean Delta...

Re: Fewer than 400 MD-80/90 on airfleets

I wonder if there is any chance of a new US start-up low-cost airline that would be willing to take some of DL's and AA's MD 80/90s. Probably very cheap...

Re: Heritage Liveries for Delta

DL didn't do a farewell flight for the 747s (IIRC, they were quoted as saying that they'd do one if someone paid for the Jet A), so I don't think that they really value the past. Heck, they put out an ad a few years ago that essentially trashed every major American aviation pioneer, while claiming ...

Is JFK a prop-free airport?

Hello,

Has anybody noticed if/when traveling through New York JFK Airport, you cant seem to find any propeller aircraft... no ATR's, or DASH 8's, or any General Aviation. Is it banned, or just a coincidence?

Not exactly correct. Yeah, the A380 is not a game changer, but it does show just how big a civil aircraft plane can be. Without a doubt, the 747 was a game changer. The 787 is a game changer, with the small size, but great range and efficiency. The DC-9 was a fair game changer, as it led to the MD 8...

The 747 is a great aircraft... but its a gas guzzler, and I believe within the next 30 years or so its gonna disappear like the DC 9, MD 80, 727, early 737s, 717, & 767-200.
