Google alert sent me this story; I haven't heard about that kind of configuartion in a Saab before:


http://www.wtrf.com/story.cfm?func=viewstory&storyid=4090

Morgantown may join three other West Virginia cities in endorsing a proposal to switch airlines. One that will give passengers more options and more destinations. Story by Katherine Jones

Morgantown City Council has voted to recommend to the federal Department of Transportation that Regions Air replace Air Midwest at Morgantown Municipal Airport. Air Midwest has been flying passengers to Pittsburgh where they could then make connecting flights.

Air Midwest announced in April that it would cancel service to the Morgantown Airport unless it received a federal subsidy.

Regions Air would fly passengers from Morgantown to Delta Airlines' hub in Cincinnati. They would provide a 34 passenger Saab aircraft that has laboratory facilities, more room for passengers and a flight attendant.

Council says the high cost of a flight from Morgantown to Pittsburgh forced many potential air travelers to drive to Pittsburgh instead. With a new hub passengers will able to fly to 140 cities around the world from Cincinnati ...compared to about 50 out of Pittsburgh.

I wasn't aware that Regions Air had Saabs. And with almost a year on the Saab, I never found a Laboratory.

3C/Corpex/Regions Air with Saabs

Yes, but they're buying up all the (few) Saab 2000s, not 340s, and they're going to use them in RDU. And of course ... I have a confirmed date for the first new hire FO class on the 2000. Back to Raleigh, baby! :)

I thought they meant Saab Viggens, or Grippens if they hit the lottery tonight. My mistake!;)

You must have never flown one with the built in coffee pots. There was always some kind of science experiment growing in there. :)

Well, we knew it was only a matter of time until there was another DCI carrier. Otherwise, who would undercut mesa?
Hey, are they going to have those cool bunson burners in the laboratory. Leave it to a west virginian to mistake laboratory with lavatory, after all 78% of West Virginia housholds still have outhouses and bathe once a week. Heck, you only write for a living we wouldn't expect ya'll to know how to spell. Spark up the banjo billy.
