Hi, me again.
I recently created a thread asking about 19 & 30 seater turboprops, I appreciate the input given.
Under the same proposed operation, they are considering operating an aircraft for a route that’s around 500nm one way.
We’re in need of 70-90 passenger jets. That pretty much leaves us with the CRJ-9, the E-170 and the E-175 to compare
I have specs but I’m not sure about how they compare with operating costs, maintenance, reliability etc.
I’m also missing fuel burn figures for these aircraft, that might help.
As before, operating in the Caribbean so it gets really hot at times. Sea level airports.
P.S. I’m sure there are many good things you can say about the Dash-8 and other turboprops, but there are jets competing on the same route. And knowing the people well, I’m convinced that there’s almost no way they would choose a turboprop over a jet. So I’ve ruled them out.
