I think, but I am prepared to be shot down in flames if I am wrong, that Flybe Q400s have drop down pax oxygen which gives them a max ceiling of 27,000 ft which in turn allows them to use upper airspace which would be very helpful on some of their routes. The ATR is limited to 25,000 ft so cannot use upper airspace.
