BA CityFlyer to keep Avro RJ100s

BA CityFlyer has decided to keep two Avro RJ100s that had been due to return off-lease to BAE Systems Regional Aircraft. RJ100 G-BXAR (msn E3298) had been returned to BAE Systems in late March, and G-BXAS (E3301) had been due to follow. The airline intended to replace them with some of the former Mesaba RJ85s currently stored at Marana, but decided that modifying them for use in Europe would have been more expensive than simply keeping its existing leases. The airline will thus keep G-BXAS and take G-BXAR back.
