Mesaba only operates the Saab 340. And those will all be returned to Saab Leasing by 2012. Also, Delts does not have a Connection Carrier that operates a 1900. I suspect there was a lot of response by the locals which prompted DAL to respond.If you're only going to sell 21 seats on the Saab, why not just serve it with a 1900. The King Air wouldn't likely face the weight restriction the Saab does.
The locals want their cake and they wanna eat it too. They want the convenience of 121 airline service, but they won't budge on extending the runway. They have tried to get it extented, but the majority of the locals won't have any part in it. They believe that with a longer runway, that will mean a lot more air traffic (GA included) which will turn their quiet little island into a thriving metropolis.Ahhh...gotcha. Wish those locals would get us another 1000 feet of pavement down there. Plenty of room to the north. Have to shift Beach City Road, but that's no big deal.
Seems DAL could find an operator with equipment better suited to the task than blocking 30% of the seats on a Saab.
We all know how good you are at finding ass, you just reach around behind your latest customer while you are on your knees!If DAL was run by people who had the common sense to locate thier own ass whilst utilizing all available appendages, they would have come to this same realization long ago....
Did you used to service the lavs on those airplanes as well, sport?-Seems like I remember some ATRs used to fly down that way.... Hmmmm.
