First Embraer 170 Routes For US Airways

Tue Feb 03, 2004 4:59 am

According to usairways.com, it appears the first few Embraer 170 routes are for sale on US Airways.

Philadelphia to Kansas City (MCI) and Syracuse (SYR).

Pittsburgh to Albany (ALB), Atlanta (ATL), Boston (BOS), Nashville (BNA), Newark (EWR), and Syracuse (SYR).

These flights will be operated by MidAtlantic Airways on the Embraer 170, in US Airways Express titles.

Hmm...I just found those flights you mentioned in the timetables, yet interestingly enough the flight numbers are all below 2000 (in the 1600's), indicating mainline service. We've all seen the picture that clearly shows Express titles, but will it be considered mainline service?

Does that mean that there will be 2 classes? Also, will they be served from regional concourses (i.e. F in PHL) or the regular mainline concourses (B/C at PHL)?
I'd rather be flying.

Since EWR is very convenient for me, I will certainly hop a flight to PIT to visit my sister!!!

 Insane Strange as this aircraft has not been certified yet and God only knows when it's gonna happen.

Article in today's Wall Street Journal mentioned US Airways is negotiating to kill part of a big regional jet order they placed within the last two years, the rest they are trying to have delivered to non affiliate regional airlines who "might" fly for US Airways.

The Embraer 170 has already received its 'Temporary Airwortheness Certificate'. This will allow operators to begin flight crew training, ground service training and also start the proving runs. WITHOUT this first step, you will not get final FULL certification.

EMBQA, unfortunately there is going to be a further delay to the FULL certification. The date is getting pushed back yet again. I am not privy to all the wrangling between Honeywell and EMB but it can't be pretty.

In order to start passenger service aircraft must have all required, permanent certificates. EMB-170 should have had them a long time ago but it has "some problems" and date is pushed and pushed again. I bet it won't start service in US Airways on April 4th.

Other airlines may have troubles as well, LOT 735 leases are ending this year and EMB-170 were planned to replace them. It is likely LOT may have not enough aircraft to fly all of its routes if 170 is further delayed.

They will have a dedicated series of "mainline" flight numbers, like Shuttle. This is partly because they will be operated by MidAtlantic Airways, a division of US Airways, and partly to differentiate them from regular Express flights when marketing them. They will be in a 70-seat one-class Shuttle-type configuration, with extra seat pitch. I'm not sure which terminal the flights will use in PHL, but I would guess B/C. In PIT, they will use the mainline B concourse.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
