Regional Jet Order Rumours

According to a website I recently found (http://fly.to/rorders) is Air Botnia very interested in the 728JET. And US Airways is said to buy up to 400 regional jets, prefering the 328JET. Atlantic Southeast Airlines will purchase several 30-40 seat jet like the ERJ-135 and the 328JET. Has anyone heard something about this or heard another rumour?

Like Flying-tiger i think US Airways is definitely in the market in a major way for an RJ--it makes sense as feeders for their Charlotte, Philadelphia hubs. They may have to go for the Fairchild Dornier family because I think the EMB's ERJ's lines are pretty much all booked by Continenental.

I know the ERJ-145's fit standard jetways. I know the Bombardier's do not fit standard jetways. From the height of the 328's I don't think they fit standard jetways--they would be too low to the ground--Any confirmations of this out there?

I am not sure about CRJs not fitting standard jetways. I was at Lambert two days ago and saw a USAirways (I think) CRJ parked up next to a 727 and an MD80 in the same gate I flew in on in a UA 737.

Maybe I am just seeing things but that is what I saw.
