Um, ERJ170s don't exist. EMB170s do. Remember, this is not the same line as the ERJ 135/145.
>Rumor between Expressjet pilots is quite strong that they'll be aquiring big Embraers soon as well. However, that having been said, it's just a rumor and pilots don't run the company<
Well, considering the tension between the Expressjet pilots and management right now, they will probably ask for a big pay raise to incorporate the planes. Also, considering the strength of ALPA at CO
mainline (expressjet are also ALPA) I am sure they will have something to say about any change to mainline flying. I actually think that the 170s could be used to expand flying, and not replace a single 737
