Worthy of its own topic - Virgin Blue is to sell its E170s...

Excerpt...

However, some regional routes could be axed or upgraded, with Borghetti confirming aviation industry speculation that the 78-seat Embraer E170 aircraft would be removed from the Virgin Blue fleet.

“We are reviewing the Embraers – the E170s in particular,” he said. “It’s not an economically-viable aircraft, for the missions we fly to its not appropriate and we intend to sell them.”

Currently, the fleet of six Virgin Blue Embraer E170s are being on used on routes between Sydney and Canberra, Sydney and Port Macquarie, and Melbourne and Mildura amongst others.

Quoting QF744 (Thread starter):
Virgin Blue is to sell its E170s

Wonder if they'll cut routes or replace them with E170s with E190s and 737s on those routes. Or maybe get some turboprops...  mischievous . Makes you wonder about all the criticism on a.net that Qantas(Link) cops with using Q400's rather than jets.

Your not making any sense... The title states Virgin Blue To Sell E170s and your asking if the routes will be replaced with E170s???
