I'll be on US 1618 PIT-ALB on Sunday, April 4. That's US Airways' first scheduled EMB-170 flight. Will anybody else here be on it? I'll also be on the return flight US 1617 ALB-PIT.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

I saw it in ATL last week when it was on a route proving flight. It's a good looking little airplane.

Great! I am glad that you were like it with EMB-170 into their PHL & PIT. Maybe someday that I would like to fly with EMB-170 soon into the future.  Big thumbs up

Back in 2002 I was contracted by Embraer to make some photo coverage of the demo tour around Europe, after the Farnborough Show. Needless to say, I flew many sectors on it, tail number was PP-XJA, and I was impressed. The seats were similar to the ones seen with the LOT machines.

Confort level was good+, noise was almost non-existant, and the plane perfomed very well, albeit being flown by manual control only and below FL290, as the A/P software wasn't installed yet.

A nice plane and a smooth ride.

Cheers
