MY GOD! This must be the best day this year for aviation!!!
I threw this render together last night actually, just pure coincidence that this announcement was made today:

Maybe it's just a normal E170 with 76 seats. That's what it sounds like even from EMB's press release.
This could serve as a test for Embraer as well. I think this is similar to the Corporate Shuttle versions of the ERJ-135. If it works out, they most likely will come out with a "Lineage 700". Hopefully we will see an E-170 with increased range, possibly an E-190 wing and with all the luxuries of a Gulfstream.
