Atlantic Southeast has 5 of the type with options on 15 more, although I
doubt they'll pick it up because of their recent order of 30 Canadari RJs.
 ASA has not been happy with the engine's performance - big surprise.
United Express carrier Air Wisconsin has 15 of the type and Northwest
Airlink carrier Mesaba Airlines is taking on 12 Avro RJ85s (2-class, 69
seats) in April. Air Atlantic in Canada has a few. The rest are
concentrated in Europe, with some in Australia.
