Wonder if other Q400s operator will stop their service with the Q400s. ??
Not quickly...taking Q400's out of service would pretty much put Horizon Air out of business in the near term.

Quoting Gsosbee (Reply 11):
I hope that SAS's action is not a move to keep SAS's maintenance out of the investigation. Without problems at other operators the finger begins to point inward.
This is a pretty crude statement knowing that maintenance personnel are as dedicated to the safety for passengers as the crews operating the aircraft.
Maintenance personnel are supposed to be dedicated to the safety of passengers, but they're also human. There has to be a reason that SAS is seeing a disproportionate number of these failures. It could be simple dumb luck (which is still a reason) but that's unlikely. If it's not dumb luck, it has to be something specific to SAS and it makes sense to make sure that the investigation is impartial, which would bar SAS maintenance (and SAS flight ops and SAS ground ops and...) from the investigation.
