I have read that the British Aeorospace ATP has been selling rather slowly. 
I would like to know if there are any reasons (other than a depressed 
market) for the low number of orders of these aircraft. The early 
advertisements suggested that the ATP was very fuel efficient which, I would 
assume, promote higer sales volumes of the this type of aircraft.

Any comments.
