Jets vs Pistons
« on: May 06, 2012, 02:52:43 PM »
I was wondering if anyone knows about passenger demand changes due to the introduction of jets rather than piston aircraft on a route.

When one airline runs jets and another runs pistons, with similar frequency, is there a tendency for passengers to go with the jets because they are quicker, and seen as more 'modern'?

As this scenario is called 'The Jet Age', I would like to think there is some kudos in flying jets rather than pistons.

Thanks for any help

Yes, if all variables are same, faster flight time or 'better' equipment matters.
