Why does the United schedule have an E190 as the aircraft? Do they not have zero of these? Is that just placeholder or a code for something else?

This has to be to restart ops, right? No one is going to take these planes off them right now. What do these guys intend on doing with 6 777-300ERs when there's not even enough people to fill an ATR on any route in India?
