It seems these days that the Fokker is a much more popular plane
than the BAe in the US. Air Wisconsin seems to be flying BAe 146s
mostly on short haul routes in the midwest, I think Air Canada
flys them on the Maritime route. The Fokker, though, seems to be
a mainstay of American Airlines.

Neither plane is as ubiquitious as an MD-80 or 737, though...

What is the equipment mix on European routes like?
