Largest operators of the Dash 8 Q400 are located in Nothern America (Horizon, Jazz, Porter, etc).
After a recent read of a Leeham article "Regional Operation with the Turboprop, Prop-jet or jet" (https://leehamnews.com/2015/02/08/regio ... e-analyze/) I discover the "versatility" of the Dash 8 Q400 in terms of Cruise speed.
When cruising on High Speed mode (350 knots) on a sector of 300 NM the Dash 8 Q400 flight duration is 10 minutes longer than a regional jet (66 mins for the jet vs 76 mins for the Dash 8 Q400).
I did some research but didn't find as I'm in Europe and here only Flybee in the UK is a large operator of the Dash 8 Q400.
Does in Nothern America, on some flight routes the Dash 8 Q400 is competiting against B737 or A320? And if yes, can you guys tell me those routes and the airlines?
