Re: Embraer re-entering the Turboprop market?

Would be good to see a modern replacement for Saab 340 size planes, something in the 30 - 40 seat range.

Re: Planes currently being manufactured in the 20-40 seat range

Living on a Scottish island I often think about this regarding Loganair. The 34 seat Saab 340 is the backbone of their fleet and seems to be just the right size. The average age of these aircraft is around 25 years so they are getting on. I wonder how long they can be used and what will eventually r...

RE: Loganair Off The Runway In Stornoway

What would be the process for removing the aircraft and getting it repaired if that's what they decide to do? Obviously there are no maintenance or repair facilities at Stornoway. I guess at over 23 years old it could be a write off if badly damaged.

I fly on the Saab 340 quite a lot, usually once or twice a month and I'd say that rows 3 and 4 are probably the worst to be in for noise. Anything from row 7 back is a bit better. I usually choose row 7 on the Loganair planes for the extra leg room as that's where the overwing emergency exits are.

From my experience, they do seem quite unstable when descending if the weather isn't great.
I'm flying on one tomorrow and hoping the weather is good!
