Atlantic Coast Airlines

Fri Oct 30, 2020 10:18 pm

In 1995 I flew ACA from Newport News, VA to Washington (IAD) on a twelve seat turboprop with a spar hump across the cabin. Would that have been a Jetstream 31?
Only information I can find is on Wikipedia and it does not list the airplane on that page.

Didn't they operate the Dornier 328jet for Delta Connection at one point?

It was a Jetstream Super 31 also known as a Jetstream 32. It carries 19 passengers.

Ah yes, Atlantic Coast. The successful contract carrier that tried to become its own "regular" airline (Independence Air) and sadly failed. I truly liked ifly's product/service, but they just couldn't make that work (sorry for the hijack, but I have strong feelings).
Great Lakes, great life.

Yes. they operated over 30 FairChild Dornier Do328JET aircraft for Delta Connection from 2000 until 2005. They were retired as ACA rebranded to Independence Air, and they didn't see a need for 30 seater jets.
The 757-MAX is happening tomorrow.
