Living withing 1 mile of YYZ, i am constantly seeing the new E190 and E175 coming and going from pearson. I know that Air Canada is opening new routes and expanding frequencies with these new jets, which is so nice for Canada. As I understand from a Pilot at AC, these jets are working quite niceley, now that the teething period is over. Would AC be looking to get more E175's to expand into some smaller american markets, they currently have 15, and are working on their deliveries of 45 E190's.

If any more Embraers are ordered, they would likely be E190s, as they have better range. There are about 30 more 190s left to arrive though, so let's see where they end up flying first.
The E175s are well suited to the off peak, YYZ/YUL-LGA, YYZ/YUL-EWR, YYZ/YUL-ORD, as well as YYZ-DFW/IAH. With all the new domestic and trans-border transcons planned and currently operating, the E190 is working well.
btw, the passengers are raving about the plane. I get the feeling this is definitely NOT a CRJ!

The plane is amazing, feels like a big jet, but offers the airlines the economics of a regional plane. I was stating that the E175 is a great plane for those routes, YYZ-LGA, YYZ-DFW, YYZ-IAH. These are well served routes, and with there being lots of connections at DFW and IAH, AC is not going to be putting A320-B767 on this route, as CO and AA have them well served too and from Canadian destinations.
Is it just me, or is Air Canada starting to step on some toes in the US, with routes like YYZ-SFO, and YVR-SAN coming online, even though united operates one, and YVR is well served as well. US and United are star members, but air canada seems to want to operate some of the same routes.
