I like the Embraer Jet. I flew on it once with American Eagle, a 135 from LGA
. It rises quicly and quietly like the Super 80 when it takes off, it flies smootly, it is a very modern aircraft. The only thing I didn't like about it is that you have not much space in your overhead bin to put your carry on luggage, I had to keep my attache case with me however I could stow it under the seat in front of me. Nevertheless it's a pleasure to fly on it, I was impressed with it.
I've never flown on the 145 but I imagine flying on that one is the exact same thing except that there are maybe a couple more rows in the cabin (yes no need to say main cabin since there's no First or Business Class!). The Embraer and the Super 80 are the two aircraft that I personally find most pleasant to fly on.
.SCE, thanks for the detailed info about the Eagle fleet present and future.
