The FIFO mining market seems to be picking up, is what I heard.

Skywest had been using 1 or 2 A320s to supplement the F100s, but indeed unfortunately the little Fokkers are reaching EndOfLife. Maintenance of the RollsRoyce engines was always quite expensive, more and more electronics parts are hard to find now, having to cannibalise. 80s electronics is *ancient*.
