1st Embraer 190 For US Airways Delivery Flight (Dec 16th)

Mon Dec 18, 2006 2:53 am

N944UW (former PT-SIL) was spotted at MAO a few minutes ago (17:30Z) with the new registration. I wasn't manage to copy the destination, but I think the final destination might be CLT ou PHL.

Regards

Thanks! What's the delivery rate? Can I be lazy and ask for a link to the order.  Smile

New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Perhaps maybe a stop at the FLL Embraer Facility first?

Most deliveries to the US do stop in FLL. They clear Customs and Florida offers the airlines a friendly tax rate for in-processing the aircraft into the county. I would not really call FLL an Embraer facility. It's only business offices and parts warehouse.

I would like to see the E-190 replace the CRJ-900 flights here, or mix them both. HPex/USex CR9's in OKC operate to PHX and LAS, would be nice to see US open up the East Coast for OKC, possibly CLT. The odds are low OKC will get some E190's here, but we can all dream can't we?

Any chance for a E190 ride PHL to PIT? That's my frequent route and I've been dying for a flight on an E Jet.

Where is it now? Has it made it to the states yet?

Hopefully we will get to see it at MDT. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

It arrived in CLT earlier today. The "other" site has a couple of photos of the plane, including one of it getting a water canon salute in CLT.

Hopefully no foam (AFFF) like poor UA772.  spit

Ps, cool pic Hammer. Is it just me, or does the E190 look extra sleek in US colors? I might be a B6 fan, but I have to say... that livery looks incredible on the E190. Something about the length of the plane and its low height to the ground just... looks right.

does anyone know when the first revenue flight is? i'm hoping to catch a ride within the first week of its service.
Also I believe it will be serving DFW as well from PHL.
