And JER!

Looks good; registrations will continue from the end of the E-195 sequence, i.e. G-FBEO, P, R etc ...

I had thought that the 175s would first be used on the Guernsey-LGW route, but I think the Guernsey authorities (who also own Aurigny, BE's competitor on the route) don't want this to happen, so it'll be interesting to see where it's based first.

I see that a fair few Dash 8s have been returned to lessors in recent weeks ...

Not sure that GCI can handle a E175 with a 4800' runway

I know they can't operate the E195 there at the moment. However aren't they going to be extending the runway at GCI?

Not sure if this is relevant as I know nothing about the relation between aircraft types and runway lengths, but GCI seems perfectly capable of handling LH summer charters with 737s. I would have thought that an E175 would use less runway than a 737, but like I said, what do I know?!

- Yes I noted that too, anyone know if they have shaved the schedules due to a smaller fleet, not seen anything.

GCI was supposed to be honored with the first commercial flight, so yes the runway is sufficient. Length isn't a problem for their larger 195s, but the weight is.

I rechecked and they can be as the E175 uses only 4100' of runway for stage lengths under 500nm- but needs 7300' for full load/range

Just a small correction, the registration used is for test flights/pre-delivery flights only and is part of a batch of registrations allocated by the Brazilian CAA to Embraer. Actual delivery flights are 99% done already with the final registration un-taped (see the black taped area above the Brazilian reg.)

It wont be used on the GCI to LGW route, not initially at least. It will still be used to LGW, just from other destinations.
