It would seem CO found a use for an ERJ that would otherwise be sitting around.

2X daily is back again this summer, both 738s. For some reason this route does not command 2X throughtout the year, though I know many in CLE would like more frequency, or maybe move the evening departure from CLE earlier to allow a decent arrival time in the Bay Area.

Now what I would really like is a 752 doing CLE-SFO-HNL!

Good news for CLE.

Since we are talking about CO in Canada, why is there no IAH-YUL?

Well, I'd rather take the non-stop ERJ than make a connection.

A 735 would be better, but IAH-YUL is possible with an 145XR, right?
