I hope this works out. I think CRJ's are the best looking planes in the sky and those new ERJ-190's are really quite sharp as well.

That's just the esthetics, i know, but I'm sure they will be a great buy as well.

A lot of frequent flyers were invited to Montreal last year to try the competing models, and the consensus was that the EMB-190 was the best of the planes under consideration. The Embraer interior doesn't feel like a regional jet - not at all like the 50-seaters - and AC is giving them leather seats, inseat video and 33" of seat pitch. The CRJ-705 is actually a modified CRJ-900 tube, which AC is configuring with 34" seat pitch, leather seats, inseat video, etc. That 34" pitch is more than any Canadian carrier, including AC, currently offers in Economy. So these planes should be very well recieved indeed.
