The first US destination to see it will prob be FLL since it prob has to go there on its stopover to where ever else its going. I could be wrong. But I believe all Us Airlines fly the EMB's through FLL.

You are correct. The aircraft is referred to as the Embraer 170, or EMB-170....NOT the ERJ-170. Embraer made it very clear when they developed this line of aircraft it was not a regional jet, but designed as a mid market jet. There are serious enough about it that we had to redo the logo from ERJ-170 to Embraer 170 on the large display model in our corporate lobby.
