The 757, over the usual 737's.

Nothing larger than a B757, if that's what you're wondering.

To give you an idea, here's the schedule for May 20, a regular Friday:
BOS: 4x ERJ
CLT: 1x 734, 1x 733, 2x CR7, 2x ERJ
DCA: 2x 733, 1x 733, 1x ERJ
LGA: 7x ERJ
PHL: 1x 734, 3x 733, 2x ERJ
PIT: 3x ERJ, 1x CRJ

And here's the schedule for Friday, May 27, one of the heavier days:
BOS: 5x ERJ
CLT: 1x 757, 2x 734, 2x 733, 1x CR7, 2x ERJ
DCA: 2x 734, 1x 733, 1x ERJ
LGA: 10x ERJ
PHL: 1x 734, 4x 733, 1x ERJ, 2x CRJ
PIT: 3x ERJ, 1x CRJ
