On LIN/FCO route there is also another carrier called Meridiana (www.meridiana.it); it has now only 5 daily flights for each way but usually it seems to be the cheapest solution ! Fares starting from 9 euro + tax !!
Aircraft on this route is the MD80 family.
About the ERJ170 routes now Alitalia Express has put them on 2 main bases : LIN & FCO for some national (such as Ancona , Brindisi ,....) or international links (such as Dusseldorf , Frankfurt , Wien ..... ). I think now it's too early to know which routes will be operated by ERJ170 in Jan05. You have to hold on for some months. Anyway I think that on LIN/FCO you will find only MD80/32S by AZ!

If you book a midday flight LIN-FCO sometimes you could be lucky to be on an EMB-170.
Since AZ Express uses 170 both from LIN and FCO and the base for maintenance is in FCO, they need to trasfer the plane between the two cities. So in spite of flying empty as ferry flight they put it in the midday flights when there is a lower request.
