Re: E2 sales campaigns and design discussion/scope

I feel the E2 has a massive struggle coming. For an airline the opportunity cost of buying the E2 is not getting the A220..... Why would you take the E2 over the A220? Yes, Embraer is in the same situation than BBD 20 years ago with their CRJ700/900 when Embraer launched the Ejet. Even worse, the E...

I am still baffled why Embraer didnt make the 175E2 fit US scope clauses, even if it meant smaller, less efficient engines, it wouldve sold hundreds if not in the thousands. Of course I know there must be a reason for it. Maybe to do that its not much better than the E1 so it wasnt worth it ?

Re: S7 flight runs off end of runway, barely takes off

Apparently the pilots put in the wrong weight for takeoff, so the power used was a lot less? If that is true, why didnt the pilots realise that the plane wasnt picking up enough knots and put full throttle at some point?
