E-Jets are flying with 65 airlines
“We want to make sure we don’t fall into that trap,” he says, calling overbooking a “luxury” enjoyed by larger manufacturers like Boeing and Airbus.

Question, with 8 per month, how long a wait if an airline were to make a good size order?
|Quoting Reffado (Reply 3):|
Never had the chance to try one out. My father (who is as much an aviation enthusiast as me) flew the E195 with AD and was quite pleased. Embraer seems to have really hit the jackpot with this family.

I'll hijack the thread to ask a question and post a possibly random curious fact about the E Jets. One of my teachers in the airclub works in the maintenance for the presidential aircraft here in BSB, and he mentioned that the E90 not only has FBW systems, but also hydraulic ones for main systems (ailerons, rudder). Which I think is quite a nice backup, knowing electronics and all. Can anyone confirm this?
|Quoting lightsaber (Reply 2):|
Somehow I've never flown on an E-jet. I've *tried*... but substitutions have made it not happen. And its not easy finding E-jets on the US West Coast.

You'll be able to see a bunch of 175's LAX-SFO coming up soon on Delta Connection! You'll love it!

Do E-jets have RNP technology?

The plane is efficient..the big big problem and this is one of the reasons TA will get rid of them sooner or later, is the belly space man. From SJO they have to leave luggage behind most of the time. I do not know if CM suffers the same issue or they have a higher thrust setting for MTOW...but for TA at MTOW...it means baggage left behind...
|Quoting bahadir (Reply 30):|
I have done 4+ hours with full pax and their bags in 190s. Those people must be checking in the kitchen sink and then some. How high is SJO and how long is the runway?
|Quoting Reffado (Reply 31):|
Considering the woman ahead of me on my last MIA-BSB flight checked into Business Class with - I kid you not - 29 full size bags + hand luggage, I don't doubt his information...

Funny paradox at AC is that it is a great aircraft, inasmuch as during winter ski season it can take far more snowboards etc than any CRJ or Dash 8 that would normally operate the routes.
