Sounds cool! Too bad we won't get to see the 190's at PDX for at least a few years. I doubt JetBlue would dare try and move in on the strong hold AS and WN have up and down the west coast from SEA and PDX for a while.
Next Flights: 12/31 AS804 PDX-MCO 2/3 AS19 MCO-SEA QX2545 SEA-PDX

Can't wait to fly one!

Why so few orders for the E175?

How much difference is there in the E190 of jetBlue and the E195?
More Pax/Less Range?

WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG FOR THEM TO ANNOUNCE ROUTES?! I'm soooo curious and I'm losing my patience. I have waited for this with much anticipation since they first announced that they ordered these planes.

jetBlue is being a bit of a drama queen concerning the route announcements for the 190 - assuming that the E190s will be taking over certain segments operated by the A320s atleast for the first months, this is becoming a bit silly in my opinion. When new cities start to be added, atleast there will be some advance warning, as jetBlue will need a couple of months of lead time to start selling seats on the new flights.

The difference between E-Jets are:
E170 - 29.9 m - Range: 3704 Km (2,000 nm) - 70 pax
E175 - 31.68 m - Range: 3304 km (1,800 nm) - 78 pax
E190 - 36.24 m - Range: 4260 Km - (2,300 nm) - 98 pax
E195 - 38.65 m - Range: 3889 Km - (2,100 nm) - 108 pax

its really not a good idea to announce routes and plans for aircraft until you've been given the okay by the FAA to operate the Aircraft. Look at DH, they should have had the A319 up in running within a short period of time after they received them however they took a rather long time to get certified to operate them and in the mean time had to operate two CRJs at the same time on some routes...

I'm sure once B6 is given the go ahead they'll add extra frequencys rather than announce new routes. The E190 is rumored to be staying up north near JFK for the first 6 months or so in the case of needing to work out any kinks. Give it some time...

Well said. B6 should be "conservative" while launching the E190 until they "know" the airframe. Then... watch out!

From the article

Quote:
Embraer expects to receive approval from UK aviation authorities for its 170 for the London City Airport steep approach by the end of next year and anticipates similar approval for the 190 will follow.

The E190 can do London City?!? I'm impressed. I know the E170 has double flaps for that airport, but if the E190 can that is a big plus.
