The three airlines to get EMB-170 first are Swiss, LOT and Alitalia. It is my understanding that the deliveries could start as soon as January-February 2004. Any ideas what will be the first routes served by EMB-170 ? I guess they will do some tests and trials before they introduce them into the regular service. As you know Embraer has promised quite a lot, now it will be time to see how the small jets actually behave.

Alitalia will be the first airline to receive the new EMB-170ER.
AZ will use them for feeder services on to its two hubs, Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino.
Therefore I would expect that the first route will be out of FCO or MXP towards regional destination but I can't tell you which one.

I believe that US Airways may in fact be the first customer to take delivery of the E170 (85 on firm order).

It will certainly be interesting to see what kind of teething problems the E170 will experience once in regular service. However, one thing that is for sure is that passengers will love the interior comfort of the E170!

The first example for Alitalia has been already painted in the "Express" livery of the Italian National Carrier and is ready for delivery pending the completion of the flight test program (it has been seen outside Embraer's facility at Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil and i have also seen a picture posted on an Italian aviation forum).
Alitalia Express became the first customer scheduled to take delivery after SWISS posponed its deliveries....
US Airways will come lately most probably.

I am answering my own post, bad style, just found it on Amadeus:
Alitalia AZXM 188/189 FCO-VIE-FCO E70 Daily, March 28, 2004 till October 30, 2004
Alitalia AZXM 190/191 FCO-VIE-FCO E70 Daily, March 28, 2004 till October 30, 2004
Alitalia Express LIN-FRA, several flights a day. You could probably find more if you dig.
So both Fiumicino and Linate get EMB-170, probably Malpensa as well.

From what I see in the schedules, also LIN-BRU will be one of the launch routes.
