I'm incredibly excited about the possibility that electric flying could bring back some of the regional routes as well.

Sorry to hear production ended but the ERJ will leave quite a legacy and turned into an amazing success. Did they call off production because the legacy frame was no longer selling or?

Helvetic Airways Upgrades Embraer E2 Order Helvetic Airways has signed a commitment with Embraer to convert four of their remaining firm orders to the larger E195-E2 aircraft.

I think the implications of a route like this are very encouraging if you have a smaller city in the Western US that’s hoping to land WN service sometime in the future. This is an experiment IMO.

Something missed in the previous posts was noted by Slattery in the AIN interview below. Embraer is looking at building a new turboprop with the same look and feel of the E2 series.

There's a market for anything, but is there enough of a market for someone to clean sheet a design? Almost definitely not.

Seems like an overkill. They might well keep the GEs, if only to make it more attractive on the export market. I'm not sure there's a turboprop of that power class available from Russia anyhow, and I doubt the market is worth developing one for.

With Aeromexico looking to upgauge, with the DL influence, I think the A220 has an edge. E-jet opperators have bought the A220: AC, B6, I think people overestimate the cost of switching types.
