with more than 100 seats (Schlapping, 2016). It is expensive to operate large airplanes over a short distance. Furthermore, pilots working in the regional airlines are paid less compared to the mainland airlines but this act as a training ground before they can be promoted to the main line and earn more. The managing, sta ng and controlling is similar in both airlines, but companies have to ensure that they are tailored to meet the respec ! ve demands. The regional airlines have less tra c therefore their administra ! on is less complex and more direct regarding its opera ! ons. On the other land, the mainline airlines have to take into account the many routes, high number of tra c and revenue genera ! on. Further, it is important to note that the two airlines must work (Weedmark, 2019) together and integrate their organiza ! onal structures to support the various departments Another di ff erence between the airlines is the type of services o ff ered in the aircra $ s. In the mainline airlines, investment has been made to ensure maximum comfort of passengers as they travel over long distances. On the other hand, the regional airlines invest li % le to no resources towards luxury travel since the distances are short and it would be uneconomical. References Schlapping, B. (2016).

I definitely do think mainline carriers work a li % le bit more complex than regional airlines. They might have similar processes but the mainline carriers have so much added on work that they need to make sure runs smooth while people are traveling. I think with the rise of many regional aircra $ s, an appropriate regional airports are also on the rise. Many towns all over the world are star ! ng to have airports that accommodate exclusively for regional airline. I do agree many regional flight do not invest enough to them. Since the distances are short and the sta ff are also on a low pay, there would be no need to invest too much into it now. Tyler Gage Sep 7, 2020 # Reply " Good evening, Marlon. It is good that you brought up the comfort factor in your post. Decades ago, even certain short-haul flights such as Washington, D.C. to New York City made a point of adding a certain layer of luxury. Unfortunately, due to deregula ! on, 9/11, and some economic factors, even mainline carriers are ge & ng rid of what were once basic luxuries. Even a carry-on bag might be considered a luxury to some carriers. Honestly, I foresee legacy carriers charging people by the hour to use power outlets and lavatories in the future.
