The new spanish operator, part of the Air Europa Group, has received its first brand-new Embraer 195 out of six.
It has a 122 high density layout, which makes it quite large to be a "regional" plane and, as said, it will have superb CASM.

Are there any news on the route the airline will fly?

I recall spain domestic routes were rumored, but maybe thin EU routes could also do.

Thanks.


Any ideas for a signature?

In principle, Globalia aborted the plans for the launch of Universal Airlines because of the engagement of Globalia with the unions. (The unions were affraid that Universal Airlines, which belongs to Globalia but is not part of Air Europa would "substitute" Air Europa with a non-unionised staff). But later on, Mr Hidalgo (the chairman & owner of Globalia told that he'd like to resume the project.)

The fact is that they tried to sell the Embraers but they couldn't (apparently, nobody was interested) in them. So.. I gues that they will have to store them until they resume the project or somebody will be willing to buy them. Maybe they could also lease them, couldn't they?

Or maybe use them for Air Europa, but this would be strange, as Air Europa delayed the arrival of new 737s and they expect bad results as a result of the increase of fuel prices.

Sounds a mess.
If the planes where being stored, where will they end up?

Cannot believe no one want to lease it, but perhaps they want too much!
