Just to note.. this information from the UA website (on their codeshare).. when I checked Air Canada.. they did not have them in their system.. so go figure!!!! And it was 3 flight to E175 for ORD, and 5 of the flights for LGA..

no E75 on the list for BOS.. sorry..

The Air Canada res website hasn't been fully loaded with the summer sched as yet, but our internal sites show the E175 operating the routes mentioned.

The original news release I believe was that the AC 175s were due to enter service some time this fall.

The aircraft are due to be delivered in Montreal in July, 2005, and start service on August 01, 2005, on several routes out of Montreal and Toronto.

What's the range of these A/C? Could they do a segment like YYZ-SAN or YVR-SAN? I'd love to see AC back in SAN again...

Range of Embraer Jets:

E75 - 1800 nm / 3334 km
E90 - 2200 nm / 4074 km

Could see flights being reinstated to SAN in the future. E75 from YVR and E90 from YYZ. Miss those hops down to Tijuana!

The E-175s are not replacing CRJs on YUL-LGA and YUL-ORD. They are replacing A319s and A320s.

Got quite a few questions here!

What about CRJ-705s? When are these supposed to enter service? Earlier or later than the EMD-175?

When will AC fully implement its summer skeds on its website? March, I'd suppose?

And what about future service from/within Western Canada? Any likely city pairs in Western Canada to use the EMB-175s and/or the CRJ-705s?

Regarding the last question I posed, YEG-YVR is one I can think of, because it has had a history of getting stuck with smaller regional aircraft under Air Canada/Air BC/Jazz and also under CP before it was taken over by AC. This is compared to YYC-YVR obviously due to lower traffic volume and that YYC is an AC hub, while YEG is not.

In the past when a new acft type has been introduced, it has usually been kept close to it's mtce base for the first while. As more acft arrive from the manufacturer I am sure you will begin to see them doing some western routes. I have heard that they will be replacing some CRJ's on routes out of YWG for starters, and certainly YEG-YVR would offer good yield.

The current battle amongst the other airlines in the west might change any plans that are being made as WJ seeks to protect it's home turf (as Clive mentioned). It likely will be a bloody summer profit wise for any carriers in the west. Fortunately, with the addition of the E75, E90 and CRJ705's, AC will have a lot more flexibility in controlling it's yield than the others. Business class will offset low Y pricing to some degree. WJ, Jetsgo, and CJ will have to fill 125+ seaters with lower price tickets while AC will use it's 73 seat E75 and later 103 seat E90's.

Air Canada is not tipping its hand on the CR7. If you look at various routes on the website, the E75s are shown on 3-4 routes, like YUL-LGA, YUL-ORD. The C7 is showing on some YYZ-Texas routes. But nothing is showing domestically for competitive reasons. AC isn't tipping its hand yet. I suspect AC will use the C7 to launch some new routes... for example, to Saskatoon, which doesn't have good direct access to Central and Eastern Canada.

I thought YYC was supposed to be the main base of the E75/E90? But of course, I could always be wrong..

The writing was on the wall for YYC-IAH. For the most part, the loads on that route can't sustain an A319.

That's the whole point of the 705s and Embraers. AC has had to fly routes that might be profitable with a smaller aircraft, but not the 319 or 320

RDU is in the "top 5" for Embraer deployment, and the triumphant return of business class on the route.

how about a once daily YUL flight? Hehehe.. guess I shouldn't get too greedy.. but RDU is an excellent business market and F class is very important for RDU travellers (both to and from)

How about seeing the return of RDU-YOW? I wonder if the tech market has rebounded enough yet to support a daily flight?

Is Kelowna going to see any CRJ-200/705 or E75/90 service?

2 of the 3 daily YYZ-IAH will upgrade from the CRJ to the CR7. So, it will probably route YYZ-IAH-YYC etc to rotate the fleet from YYZ to YYC/YVR.

I also see YYZ-YXE/YQR going to 4 and 3 daily CR7's respectively. YXE will still get some weekend 319/320 rotations after the CR7's take over it seems (at least according to Amadeus).

This will be an exciting year for AC spotting! New Jazz CR7, new E175/E190, new colour scheme coming in on all mainlines.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

I 'd like to see a YEG-SFO... I know that AC has no interest in serving YEG, but that's a market that could be sustained.....easily I should add too.

but we'll have to wait and see....

Given that WJ flies YYC-SFO now, I see WJ as a possible on YEG-SFO/LAX.

I think YYZ717 has grown a new admiration for Air Canada.... Maybe a few more weeks, and we'll be hearing how great Robert Milton is!!!!!  Big grin
