Embraer Researching Streched ERJ-170

Fri May 11, 2001 3:01 am

Hey,

There is an interesting article in this week's Flight International about Embraer briefing airlines on a slightly streched (1.78m) ERJ-170 which would seat 86 people in a single class configuration. It would retain the ERJ-170's wing (the ERJ-190 has a new one)

One of the main targets for it is the BA/Qantas combined regional jet order.

BTW, is the ERJ-170 running on schedule for its 1st flight at the end of this year? Last I heard was one or 2 months ago that it was. Any update(s)? I truly can't wait to see it, especially in the LX Livery. Wheter it will operate into London City is another question. Embraer promised LX it would but I still wonder.

What do you think?

Kind Regards,
Jeremiah Teahan

Hey,

In other RJ news, Fairchild is considering adding winglets to the Dornier 928JET.
