Wow, that's great! I sure hope in the next year or two I can get enough flight hours to get hired flying a beauty like that.  Smile

Nice pictures and a beautiful aircraft! Don't know if I am so enamored with the tail art though, a little tacky in my opinion. I'd prefer if they just kept a standard tail throughout the whole fleet. Thanks anyway!

What a wonderful airplane...

Now that the LCC business is blooming in Mexico, I believe carriers should take a close look at both the 170 and 190. There is a niche in the 70-100 pax markets yet to be exploited... a gold mine if you ask me !

Its pretty sweet I guess. The tail looks neat but I think airlines should venture into different fuselage colors.

Cute plane. I would've liked if Jetblue introduced a better/more attractive livery with the type, I guess not.

Boeing/Airbus should be careful... Think about it...

Valujet started small and Delta didn't really worry about it, and now look... So what will happen if Embraer Customers really like the performance of the 70-100 seaters and ask Embraer for bigger planes. It is certainly possible for Embraer to trump Boeing/Airbus if they don't be careful. And don't say it will never happen, because we all know how Embraer started to enter the market.. Little 30 seat Turboprops (EMB-120), and now they are offering 100 seat jets.. next will be a high-efficiency version of a 737 that gets 50% better fuel burn, and it 60% quieter than the 737 or A320.

I agree with you 100%. Embraer might be positioned to grow in the future. Oh, Embraer is being smart to make it public how their next two jets will be business jets (plus, I speculate, a E70 based Legacy). I expect around 2015 we'll be celebrating the new E2XX (or will it be E8XX?) that will take on the 737/320. Embraer has been learning how to make cost effective airframes pressed into high utilization.

We would already have the competition if bombardier had stepped up with the C-series.

Back on topic, the E-jets are gorgeous! I'm just sad that B6 will take a while to bring them to the west coast. Yes, from a business perspective I applaud the east coast focus.  bigthumbsup  But that doesn't give me many chances to ride them.  hissyfit

Nice looking plane. A shame that they chose the diamonds tail to go on it - I think it's the worst looking one they have - but it still looks great. Can't wait to fly on one.

This is a great looking aircraft and I bet the 190 will fit a niche market for B6 and many other airlines to come.

Are the specifications of this ac similar to that of the 736 & 318? Any ideas who else might by this ac?

Not only that, but if and when Embraer decided to go into the large airframe market, which is inevitable, airlines may be impressed with a family of aircraft from 70-200 seats, and they will like the idea of only one manufacturer supplying all of their needs to eliminate many maintenance costs, and increase commonality.

Does it look smaller than it really is to anyone else? Maybe it's the windows, as most airliners have about 1.5 windows/seat, but Embraers only have 1 window/seat. I want to see it parked alongside a 717 or DC-9, just to compare the size. Any photos?

I've been saying the same thing for a while now. Embraer has produced a very logical and careful progression of increasingly larger and more capable aircraft. I have no doubt they can come up with a worthy competitor to the A320 and 737 families. They are almost there with the E190/195.

Congratulations to Embraer and JetBlue on this milestone. Smart looking plane, like all the Embraer jets.

No, it's not. E-170 is almost as big as Boeing 737-500 - I was really surprised to see how large this plane really is when I saw them on the ground parked next to each other at WAW...

Does anyone know what tail the next E-190 for B6 will have? I would love to see them in the other schemes as well.

How many more E-190s will be delivered to B6 this year?

Also, would love to see a new tail for JetBlue, sort of to commemorate the E190 (but that can obviously be applied to the 320s).

Best,

how will the service be on these compared to the A-320?
Will they still have the Inflight Entertainment in each seat?

And where will these aircraft be based?

Interesting how the 190 looks right, correct that, looks perfect--pleasing balance of line, length, span, height. 100 seats at 32-33 pitch. Sure would be nice to see them replace the NWA DC9' s with their generous 29-30 inch pitch. Or maybe a 195LR so they can still stuff 12 seats up front for their Freq Flyer buddha's and still get 80 plus seats in the rear

Hopefully now with the B/K the scope clause things can be eased up and they can place a bunch of 170's with Mesaba and a bunch of 190/195 with mainline but at a more of a JetBlue wage scale with the JetBlue productivity practices.

Did anyone notice this?:
The 2005 deployment plan for the newest member of JetBlue's fleet will focus on cities already served by JetBlue's current fleet of Airbus 320 aircraft.

So no new markets as of now, but that was widely expected.
