I get to fly on one of the EMB170's tomorrow. It will be the first I fly on that is in DL colors. I am looking forward to it. From SLC to RNO. And then on the 26th I get to fly on my first MD-90 and my first song FLT also from LAS to MCO. SO I get a few first for me on this short trip.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL.
BE SAFE WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING.

Quoting Alitalia744 (Reply 2): I love DL and all, but they need to get more Emb170s and start putting CR7s back on shorter routes...
At least it won't be a CRJ-100/200 . But I agree, DL could do well with more E70s, but from what I know, there's two reasons currently blocking that:
1. Lack of money (even with Shuttle America flying them)
2. Lack of available 70-seater positions under the current scope clauses.
Personally, I'd guess that once DL and DALPA sign a new contract, it wouldn't be long before DL/Shuttle America announce plans to add some 10-20 more E70s.
