They will have 2-1 seating (normal configuration) like the other Skyway planes. The DO-328Jets have regular seats in a regular arrangement except the seats are leather. The service is significantly better, which is where the difference is.

The order was actually placed by Astral Aviation / Skyway Airlines. It calls for 20+20 ERJ-140 to be delivered from next year on (although deliveries have been deferred by 6-9 months). They intend to use them as add-ons for the 328JETs already operated. As FD cancelled the 428JET project - for which Skyway Airlines was the launch customer - they had to look for another plane in this seating range - and found the ERJ-140. The 328JET will remain in the fleet. Currently 8 are operated, another four are on order for delivery during 2002 and they hold another 10 options (8/4/10). Hope this has cleard the picture
