I am flying to PHL next month on US and the itinerary says the flight is operated by an Embraer. Do any of you guys know if this is the ERJ145 or will I be lucky enough to fly the ERJ170? I know that E170 are very common in PHL so I'm hoping i'm on the E170
We often judge others by their actions, but ourselves by our intentions.
Actually, until the E-175s recently came on line; the only Embraers that flew the BNA-PHL route (& vice versa) have been the E-170s. My first (and presently only) E-170 flight was on a USExpress BNA-PHL flight 2 years ago.
Side note: the E-170s are the only E-170/190 jets in the old US colors. Those planes will probably be the last planes to get repainted in the new scheme.

We had not ran E190's to BNA and I doubt that has changed. I'll add, that even after the 175's came online. BNA was all still ran with E170s. Granted with deliveries of the 175's picking up, anything is up in the air. 108HQ came two days ago. Im sure 109 should be here any day also.
