Quoting Drewwright (Reply 1): I have a feeling DL may be sending a few to the west coast from SLC once that operation gets up and running. I'm crossing my fingers for a SLC base...
As is obvious from the thread about new routes from SLC, at least part of the E70 fleet will indeed be based at SLC. And depending on further schedule additions, it could very well happen that a E70 is send to LAX, instead of sitting on the tarmac at SLC. That's probably LAX' best chance at getting an E-Jet.

Quoting N1120A (Reply 7):
They wont. E190s are considered mainline for LGB slot purposes, which B6 has all used on A320s. The LGB regional slots are for smaller aircraft, so it would be a waste to have the E190 there
Unfortunately true. A more likely destination would be SAN, BUR, or a bay area expansion. Unfortunately, I think LAX won't see many E-jets until Embraer has produced a couple hundred more.
