Hey guys I have a quick question:
Who exactly was the first airline to operate the relatively new EMB-170? I just got my US Airways Dividend Miles E-Statement and according to them:
"LOOK FOR THE NEW EMBRAER-170 AIRCRAFT
US Airways will be rolling out the new 72-seat Embraer-170 regional jet
to an airport near you. US Airways is the first airline to introduce
this new aircraft. The Embraer-170 features leather seats, stand-up
headroom and large overhead bins. Also, when boarding the aircraft, there
will be Preferred boarding and seating. For more information, visit
I dont know if this post breaks the copyright rule because I got it in an email, but note how they say:
US Airways is the first airline to introduce...
Didn't LOT Polish operate them first? Correct me please if I am wrong. Thank you.

Just a small note, US Airways is operating these planes, not US Airways Express, not MidAtlantic Airways, and certainly not USAir Express. I realize that they're wearing US Airways Express titles, but they're on the US Airways certificate. Indeed, next to the door, there's a small decal reading "MidAtlantic Airways, operated by US Airways".
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
