US: Small jets fail to solve bigger problems
(Source : Star-Telegram, September 26, 2004)


Regional jets -- once hailed as saviours of the airline industry -- aren't necessarily the solutions for every problem, aviation experts say. 'There has been a real consumer backlash against these airplanes,' a consultant said. 'People hate them for any flight longer than an hour or so.' While more expensive to operate in terms of the cost per seat, the regional jets were seen as a cost-effective alternative because the big airplanes often had many empty seats. Regional jets are effective in serving small communities, but their advantage vanishes when they compete with full-size airplanes, said a consultant. 'You saw the majors throw 50-seat regional jets against the [discount airlines] and against mainline jets,' he said. 'That's a classic mistake because the customer feels like he's getting a subpar product.'

Har riktignok bare prøvd CRJ700, men det var helt ok for en og en halv times tur. Lavere under taket, ja, men man sitter da det meste av veien - og man slipper det hersens midtsetet.

Det er da ikke noe mindre behagelig å reise med et mindre fly. Sete størrelsen og beinplass er no omtrent det samme på en crj som 737

... og du slipper midtsete!

Sjefene i USAirways blir sikkert glade naar de leser dette. De mistet jo finansieringen paa 100 stykker, saa naa slipper de aa maatte plage passasjerene sine med disse flyene.

Embraer vil vel ha løst mesteparten av plassproblemet i høyden med 170'n og 190'n sin, har de ikke?
