US E190 Deliveries Delayed?

I was just looking through the April US schedule and they seem to have the same 10 E190 flights they started with on 2/12-1x between PHL and BOS, DFW, BDL, MHT and PVD. I thought they were supposed to be getting 2 new aircraft per month but no new flights appear to have been added. Are the deliveries delayed? If so, is it because they're getting the same software upgrades that has caused B6 to pull some birds from their fleet?

Speaking of which, I'm flying to JFK May 5 and back May 7. Any chance the Aquafresh ERJ's might still be there?

Sorry if these have already been discussed-searched as best I could and couldn't find a definitive answer.

No.....Vega is correct in his schedule. Also, jetBlue did not do 'Software' updates. The recent work performed had nothing to to with software updates.

Yes.

Vega is correct with his revised schedule, but I just wanted to make it clear that it is (rather significantly) delayed from what was originally planned.

Yes.

To clarify, though, they're not birds that US is giving up willingly. They are planes that US has at below-market rates, which GECAS is now taking back under the put option given to them in their Amended MoU from US's second bankruptcy, so that GECAS can lease them to other carriers for more money.

GECAS will likely also exercise their option to take back additional 737s next year before their lease expirations. IIRC, it will be 11 more planes leaving early in 2008.

I know what US Airways is close to finalizing a deal with Airbus for new A320 series planes so I want to keep this about the E190.

Is US Airways happy with their E190s? Do they plan on replacing some of the 737-300 or 737-400 service with these planes?

Also, "jetBlue did not do 'Software' updates. The recent work performed had nothing to to with software updates."

What did happen with jetBlue planes? How come this did not affect US Airways?

If not mistaken CM´s E190 were slightly delayed also. About the software updates, a lot of the introduction problems were apparently caused by software, and the latest I heard is that the reliability has improve greatly, from this I will deduct that the software on the E190s was either upgraded or fix.

JetBlue Airways, still smarting from its poor performance at Kennedy Airport after a Valentine's Day ice and snow storm, said Tuesday it will begin briefly sidelining its new 100-seat Embraer jets to fix software problems.

Todd Burke, a spokesman for JetBlue, said the software problems do not interfere with the safe operation of the Brazilian-built E-190s, short-to-medium-haul passenger jets.

JetBlue has 25 E-190s and others on order. Burke said the software fixes will be made beginning this week and continue into April.

No flight cancellations or delays are anticipated, Burke said. Replacement planes will be used while the E-190s are being repaired.

The software problems will be fixed at a JetBlue maintenance facility in Nashville, Tenn., when each E-190 comes in for routine maintenance work. JetBlue has contracted with ExpressJet Holdings for four 50-seat aircraft to replace the E-190s as they are fixed two at a time, Burke said.

The facility in BNA is an Embraer facility, not JetBlue
