the ATR72 is built by ATR. American Eagle, the regional airline company of American Airlines under the AMR Corporation, refers to its ATR 72s as "The Super ATRs". These models are twin-turboprop short-haul regional airliners. The ATR 42 seats up to 60 passengers, while the ATR 72 seats 74 passengers. Both aircraft are operated by a two person crew.
I hate flying American Eagle, they fly those shit ATR 72's. I swear those things are such a piece of shit, next time we'll fly Air Tran to Freeport.
