I saw what looked like an E-175 or perhaps it was a 170. Guess this is for the summer and then they'll bring back the CRJ's again? This is a question post not a fact. Thanks.

IAD-JFK has in the last 6 months gone from CRJ200s, to CRJ700s and now the E170.

Suspect it has something to do with Jetblue running JFK-IAD shuttle like flights, and trying to provide and attractive product for people to choose UA and IAD as a connecting point headed to/from JFK.

well...I think its more to do with local NYC based passengers wanting UA to Asia and Europe using the JFK IAD as the international feeder segment and wanting the premium cabin or the E+ product on ExPlus. Please don't take this wrong, I am not claiming that UA is actively stealing international passengers off nonstops from NYC but there is a loyalty (however large or small) to UA in the NYC area. Additionally, as everyone knows there are some passengers that choose their flights 100% based on price and for the one off where UA has the discount inventory available and others don't UA will get the business.

A few of the LGA-IAD UAX flights just changed from Mesa CR2's to Chautauqua E-145's, but other than to compete with B6 I would have thought LGA would have more demand and warrant the 170's than JFK ?

Right on the mark

They also have some Mesa 700s on the 2:25 departure, but the ground people @ LGA said there is no chance they will see the 170's, a shame, I might try connecting JFK/IAD in lieu of LGA-ORD/DEN
