This is primarily a question about load paperwork before departure.

Working ERJ 135 & 145 flights, we all know about the load sheets that needs to be filled out by the ramp and sometimes agents (depending on the carrier).
Anyway, my main question is... will the larger jets in the series (CRJ700/900 and Embraer 170/190) require the same pre-flight paperwork or will it be like mainline operations?

I dont know what you mean, you always have to fill out a load plan regardless of the type of a/c

I am better than you because I live on an Island

I can only speak for one operator and one of the aircraft you asked about, but we use the same load manifest for the -200 and -700 (we use the same form for all 4 a/c we fly).

It's a very simple form about 5 inches square.

I guess what I'm getting at.. is the "automation" of these newer jets. When I've completed boarding a 737 flight, as an agent, all I need to do is close the door. No baggage manifest, load sheets, etc.. The ramp just loads the info in Sabre with a few keystrokes.

On the other hand, an ERJ135 flight... wait for the ramp to add the numbers, write it down, give me the forms, take it up to the flight deck, wait.. wait.. and wait... for the numbers, get my copy back, and close the flight.

So, basically, from an agent point of view.. if I need to go close up a flight, which will I be doing (with the 170/190, CR7/9)?

Just curiosity.

The automation which you are speaking about is not aircraft specific, but instead airline specific. The regional I work for flies a large fleet of Embraers, and within a month or two will have "Accuload" software available through the FMS. With this software you will enter the PAX and bag counts into the FMS and the software (through datalink) will send back appropriate V-Speeds as well as takeoff trim position. As far as I know we will be one of the first regionals to recieve this software, but is by no means limited to aircraft.
