with more than 100 seats (Schlapping, 2016). It is expensive to operate large airplanes over a shortdistance. Furthermore, pilots working in the regional airlines are paid less compared to the mainland airlines but this act as a training ground beforethey can be promoted to the main line and earn more.The managing, staﬃng 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 traﬃc therefore their administra!on is less complex and more direct regarding its opera!ons. On the other land, themainline airlines have to take into account the many routes, high number of traﬃc and revenue genera!on. Further, it is important to note that the twoairlines must work (Weedmark, 2019) together and integrate their organiza!onal structures to support the various departments Another differencebetween the airlines is the type of services offered in the aircra$s. In the mainline airlines, investment has been made to ensure maximum comfort ofpassengers as they travel over long distances. On the other hand, the regional airlines invest li%le to no resources towards luxury travel since thedistances are short and it would be uneconomical.ReferencesSchlapping, B. (2016).

I definitely do think mainline carriers work a li%le bit more complex than regional airlines. They might have similar processes but themainline 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 manyregional aircra$s, an appropriate regional airports are also on the rise. Many towns all over the world are star!ng to have airports that accommodateexclusively for regional airline. I do agree many regional flight do not invest enough to them. Since the distances are short and the staffare also on alow pay, there would be no need to invest too much into it now.

Decades ago, even certain short-haul flights such as Washington, D.C. to New YorkCity made a point of adding a certain layer of luxury. Unfortunately, due to deregula!on, 9/11, and some economic factors, even mainline carriersare 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 legacycarriers charging people by the hour to use power outlets and lavatories in the future.
