The term "Scopeliner" is suspect as it only appears in a limited number of articles and a Google search reveals its only use is in this and a few related articles which are then referenced by other pages on the web.

The term sounds pejorative and while certain small airliners may have been operated with seat restrictions by airline affiliates in order to stay withing "scope clauses" of operating agreements, a search of numerous trade publications and aviation glossaries reveals that the term "Scopeliner" is not in general use, either within the industry or outside of it.

Agreed. I've removed the rants and removed the suspect distinction to bring it in line with Regional airliner, which defines them as any planes carrying 35-100 passengers. Jpatokal (talk) 07:51, 8 January 2008 (UTC)


According to the article, it sounds like the Embraer ERJ145, Saab 340, deHavilland Dash8 and others, might well be included in the article. Why aren't they listed? I'm going to be bold and add them; if I haven't a clue what I'm talking about, someone please correct me. Jsharpminor (talk) 00:34, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

The Concorde??[edit]

Someone listed the Concorde as a narrow-body aircraft.

It may be, in fact, true that its fuselage might be small enough to make the grade... but is it really considered a narrow-body airliner? I thought it had drastically different flight characteristics from most other aircraft in service, which really made it unmaneuverable, and in a class of airliners all its own.

At the very least, I'd like to see one place where the Concorde was ever referred to as a "narrow-body airliner" before it gets included in this page. Jsharpminor (talk) 00:40, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

The Concorde had a a 4 abreast cabin which makes it a narrow-body. Plus, have you ever seen anything referring to the Dash 8 as a narrow-body, because I've only heard "turboprop airliner" and "regional airliner".--Chuckmorris812 (talk) 02:11, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
