It appears that CPAir’s ERJs are being sold off by a UK-based firm. Did the sale fail, or were they bought for their operator certification?

According to Wikipedia, an 18 passenger G200 configuration is possible, with a range of 3,400 miles (only a little higher than E190’s range). This 18 passenger G200 would go for about $2.6 million for an aircraft built in 2000 (Cost per seat = 144K). A 2002 CRJ-200 would go for $4 million (cost per ...Jump to post
Eh.

Seems roughly as likely as likely as Delta closing their hub in ATLANTA. Since when does a single hub airline with an additional focus city close their only hub?

AA is determined to maintain their almost total dominance at SKB so immediately responded to SY's DFW route. From reports the route is going fairly well, thanks no doubt to AA's DFW feed. Pretty disappointing, too. It is almost impossible to get a cheap airfare to SKB without an inter island flight.Jump to post
Easy answer: They have a total of 3 hubs, 2 of which are located in 2 of the most delay prone airports in the U.S. That means that pretty much every single one of their planes probably touches one of those 2 airports every day. At the end of the day their route network is just not as diversified as...Jump to post
No way would I want to fly five to seven hours cramped in a frontier plane.

I’ll call it right now: this is never going to happen. I don't see this plane in passenger service.
