The E195 is already a headache for ground ops... The holds are a frustration for ground staff and it is a pain in the a$$ to balance... unlike other aircraft where an uneven distribution of pax onboard does not make a huge difference, the E195 simply makes loadplanners mad... I am one of them -.-"
I expect the stretch to be even more of a problem for ground ops....

Each evening, stars come out their daylight hiding places... But one of those, will be my wingtip, passing over...

Quoting frigatebird (Reply 8): I always thought a RE E175 would be favourite to replace KL's F70 fleet' but with EIS not earlier than 2020 this will probably be too late.
Well, KL and other operators do not have a choice - there is nothing else available if they do not want to buy turboprops. Makes perfect sense for Embraer to push those sub-types with which they compete with Bombardier.

The stretch of the E195 puts it right into CS100 territory, albeit with an EIS a few years later. This will get exciting...
P.S. I assume the E195E2 must be a small stretch, as even with slim seats, galley reconfiguration etc I don't see that 3 rows can be gained.

Parabens! Great news! I am happy for the amazing people inside Embraer and to Brazil, one of the world's most fabulous places!
It is great that Embraer has upgraded it's already great product (from a passenger POV) - from an RJ standpoint in general, they are FAR more comfortable. In fact once I caught a United E170 from ORD to White Plains (I often fly NYC to LGA - which was always on an old 737, A320 and occasional 757) and I found the E170 to be equally wonderful if not more. I was in Explus, but it was the way the 170 felt in flight, it's newness etc was joyful.
How long before we see the last E145 and CRJ's go? United out of EWR has 41,000 E145's coming and going every day. "Dear God, please get the new United E175's to Newark ASAP."
The world is missing love, let's use our flights to spread it!

Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 18):
Today Mitsubishi said FAL start will begin within 2 months and it should fly at the end of the year.
Thanks for the update. The program has had its setbacks and I'm sure will face many more challenges, but they'll get there. I think lots of airlines are on the fence regarding both C-Series and MRJ, and even more about real performance data and reliability once the GTF is in service.

Does anyone know any details of the 'new wing?' Is it an extension? CFRP (unlikely I know, but I thought I'd ask)? Just wing tip treatments? Did they stick with a common wing? (Images hint otherwise, but I'm not sure with the E-175-E2.

I see the E195 E2 HD variant aimed very much at easyJet and to a lesser extent the hybrid European carriers like airBerlin, new germanWings, etc, I think it would be a massive boost for the programme to secure easyJet and really take the wind out of the C Series sails.
Next flights: MAN-ORK-LHR(EI)-MAN(BD); MAN-LHR(BD)-ORK (EI); DUB-ZRH-LAX (LX) LAX-YYZ (AC) YYZ-YHZ-LHR(AC)-DUB(BD)
