The ATR72 600 is 10 tonnes lighter than the Dash 8 400 and obviously burns less fuel as a result. Although it is slower isn't this aircraft a better fit for Flybe in the long-term? They will surely need to start looking at replacing the Dash 8 400 in the future as the average age of the fleet is creeping up and will result in very expensive maintenance and engineering costs.
