Re: Embraer ERJ-145 Conversions - The ERJ Shuttle Config is Back .. Sort of..

The Achilles Heel for the ERJ series (135,140, 145), was always the RR engines that required all maintenance to be done by Rolls at a much higher cost than the Bombardier series. It made these aircraft less attractive on the used market. I am not sure if this is still the case.
