Beginning April 1, 2009, Mesaba Airlines will operate non-stop service from Tallahassee to Orlando, Tampa, and Fort Lauderdale for Delta Air Lines.


Mesaba will use its Saab 340 aircraft to operate two daily roundtrip flights from Florida’s capital to each of the three cities, under the Delta Connection name.
The first aircraft will be positioned in Tallahassee from Memphis on the evening of March 31, and a daily roundtrip between the two cities will also be added as part of the new service.​

In adding these new routes, Mesaba will serve five Florida destinations. The airline currently flies to two cities in the Sunshine State – serving Ft. Walton Beach from Memphis, and Tampa from Indianapolis.
The schedule is as follows:

Pinnacle (Express then) would actually fill the thing up. XJ carried rediculous amounts of extra gas on those things.

Been there, didn't get bumped.

Eagle ran Saabs from MIA to TLH. Sat in that hard jump seat on my way to the keys too many times.

I've had 32 on board. The B plus can handle weight better than the shi**** A models.

Pax weights changed after you all were receiving -200's. I've flow the SAAB with 34 pax and 1 js back in the day. I've also had to start engines to remove tailstand, that's how we rolled back then. Not anymore, 30 pax and you hit ZFW (maybe more with some half weights).

On a side note.... I get bumped from 9E's 200's now. Must be that rediculous amount of gas they carry.?.

Brings back memories of PDT Dashes in Florida back in the day. We did well there, so naturally USAir pulled us out.

As far as Hilton Head goes, if the pax thought they didn't like the ATR-72, wait till they see what the route has been upgraded with..

I hear ya murf! Myself also. Hundreds of flights with all seats including the jump filled. Most of the time had to start one to get of the tail stand, just another day in the saab.

That is some HOT flying, for sure, no APU.
I'm sure the stations will all have external air pumping, right up until engine start....

Yup but all the extra hot air from the passengers complaining probably won't help keep things cool....
