Yup, just correcting your numbers. My fuel flow gauges on the 300 usually would read about 490ish PPH per engine.

Atr burns about 30 % less on their new turboprops.


30% less than a DH4, but not a DH3. The trade off is the ATR flies about 30% slower.

Re: Jazz Dash8-100 200 retirement

They do not name competitors, but in recent years Air Canada has faced threats from rapidly expanding WestJet and from new ultra-discount startups. Yes. You keep saying that.

Re: Which Air Canada's aircraft are being parked?

YTS is still operational too. Means they’ll probably keep a pair of YYZ-based DH3s active.
