RJ is building a regional network with 15 75-100 seat jets.

Question

Which other airlines in OW has this kind of planes (actually or in the pipeline) ?
If none, no saving due to volumes...

It's also been rumoured that Aerlingus will buy some A350's to replace it A330's over the coming years

There are sign all over Dublin airport advertising the A350 - its not a car!!!

Thanks, I forgot AY... in my brain AY is still synonymous of MD-11s. Also EI for 350 ? Good. Hummm... no heavy weights like AA, BA or CX anyway.
The more I see OW, the more I think I see two different branches... no facts, just my own feeling.

A bit off-topic

Interesting article today about Cathay Pacific looking at Middle-East expansion

http://www.zawya.com/Story.cfm/sidZA...000D0B74A0D7C/

RJ currently flies 3-5pw depending on season to Bangkok. In future could Bangkok be dropped in favour of a direct Hong Kong link. This would allow for RJ to feed to various CX destinations (Australia, Japan, Korea) and CX feed to other RJ services (Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Israel). When this demand is taken into account surely there would be enough demand for a daily service from the Levant Region - North Asia?
