Would it be a similar situation to that of BA in the early '80s when the route was served by the Budgies? A rationialisation meant that they got rid of all their experienced Captains and they were replaced by Senior First Officers on a lower pay band. Unfortunately they got rid of all the years of experience in one go and this led to some pretty hairy landings and flights being cancelled that would have flown under the previous regime.
I don't know of any other aircraft of that size which can handle as much crosswind as the 340, essential in at least Sumburgh in the winter where the only fixed wing runway available is 09/27 after dark.
Merry Christmas
