I wonder who the undisclosed United partner is who will be operating the fleet. A friend of mine says he doubts his company commuteair would get the whole operation. He said in all likely hood he could see them getting maybe 5, but to ramp up a whole 28 Q400's would be too much. But hey this was just a Pilot's opinion and we obviously have proven to know nothing about the business of this industry...
    That was at Scandinavian Airlines and they flew them at MAINLINE. Their issues were also due to them being based in Copenhagen right on the water and having the oldest Q400s (they were the launch customer). The salt in the air corroded some component in the landing gear that Bombardier didn't specify needed to be inspected. Not SAS Technic's fault. Colgan and their crap reliability is beyond me...
