Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 demonstrator for Aer Arann

Post by corkspotter » Wed Mar 22, 2006 12:46 am

Evening all,

Bombardier will be sending a Dash 8 Q400 to Dublin on March 28th on demonstration to Aer Arann. Should be in Dublin between 10am and 4pm. What colours will this be in?????

Are Aer Arann playing games with ATR?

Regards,

Paul

Aer Arann have just bought 2 new ATRs, why would they go this route all of a sudden??

I would say that Bombardier offered them a chance to see the aircraft, if not they could be just playing both manufactures to get a better price for new aircraft, which they do need badly!!

EI-WAT

Those two are used 72-200s, not new 72-500s which is what the replacements for the existing fleet are likely to be.
