Northwest Unveils New Regional Jet - E-175

Wed Aug 15, 2007 8:30 pm

The aircraft that will be used by Compass is now visable. I must say the interior looks a lot more comfortable than I expected. Photo in second article of interior. Photo in first article of exterior. As has been pointed out MSP has two now. DTW will see its first in January of 2008. I hope this new aircraft will greatly enhance the quality of CRJ flying over the CRJ-200s for the flying public.

Not really new news. The Northwest/Compass E175 has been flying for a few months now and there have already been several threads with pictures. In fact one of our fellow A.neters has his photo used in a Compass presentation

Will NWA present the CRJ900 the same way? After all, they will be used on the network just as much as the E175...

NW has already introduced the 900 the same way. Big press show and all the bells and whistles. My question is other than the color of the seats, are the seats exactly the same or are they different companies? Obviously the same company equals cheaper prices!

But remember boys and girls.... this airplane, although it has first class, long range, and will be serving major cities.... is somehow not good enough to be a mainline aircraft and will be contracted out to a regional airline. This is your DC-9 replacement that everyone talks about.

Interesting that these a/c are still refered to as "regional jets." They are not. In fact, if they were, they would be named ERJ-175 instead of E-175 (throughout the E-jet family). After flying in some of these a/c myself, I can atest to the fact that they are definately a big step beyond an RJ. Ah, da heck wit it, dem all' semantics doh...right?

From the second article:

semantics yes. But for a reason. They call them RJs because they want to be able to outsource them and pay the employees less. The E-175 is about the same size as the DC-9-10. There is no reason the pilots or flight attendants on an E-175 should be paid less.

Yeah, I know thats what the article says, but I'll bet you a dollar that in the end, the Embraer jets (along with CRJ-900) will be the DC-9 replacement.

They are NOT...!!!! When the EMB170/175/190/195 Family of jets first were proposed they were going to be called the ERJ170-100, ERJ170-200, ERJ190-100 and ERJ190-200. Embraer decided that this plane was to be sold at a market above the traditional 'regional' aircraft market and renamed them the Embraer 170, Embraer 175, Embraer 190 and Embraer 195. They were so serious about this they made us repaint our lobby model to reflect the name change.

The TCDS carries the ERJ name because it was first filed under that name and the time and cost to change it was not worth it.....but if you look it calls them the ERJ170-100, ERJ170-200...etc.

Not a matter of "good enough", its a matter of "mainline pilots will not accept the level of pay required to make this economically feasible". Of course they shoot themselves in the foot but if someone is that interested in limiting their own employability, that is their problem.

Quoting DIA (Reply 8):

They were named ERJ170-200. The name was changed because of branding. The jet remains the same. In fact, in terms of range, the CRJs and ERJs are not "regional" either.

Quoting KarlB737 (Reply 9):
He said that are no plans to replace Northwest's aging DC-9 fleet with the Embraer 175

I'd say not. But then, they have 100 options convertible to the E190 or E195.

If you visit Embraer's website, they refer to the E-jets as regional jets. I agree with you, after flying on the ERJ-170 it's hard to think of them as regional jets, given how comfortable they are compared to Bombadier's regional jets, as well as Embraer's own ERJ-145 family. Heck, I think they are more comfortable than most maniline jets, let alone regionals! Obviously a big step up from what we've come to expect from the regional jet label.

assuming both seat the same amount, no. A DC-9-10 seats about the same as a CRJ-900 or E-175. The pilots should be paid the same.

Of course then the question becomes are mainline pilots paid too much or are regional pilots paid too little. GIven the trouble regionals are having recruiting pilots lately, I would say the latter.

While lot of people say that the Cseries have an advantage over the E-Jets when talking about DC-9s replacing due to the 2x3 layout, the 2x2 layout of the E-Jets make the seats wider, and please a lot of passengers.. The seating capacity of the C110 and the E-195 is the same, and e.g. would be C8Y98, 106 total, or with only Economy, from 110-125... The C110ER beats the E-195AR in range, flying 2.700nm non-stop, against 2.400nm.

Entirely 100% not true, but I do know what you are talking about.....

That post was refering to the CRJ-900 aircraft that Pinnacle will be operating as Delta Connection. Pinnacle is not allowed to fly, per the Air Service Agreement signed with Northwest, as any other brand besides Northwest Airlink into NW hubs (DTW, MSP, MEM).

Mesaba ( a wholy owned subsidary of Northwest) operates Saab 340s, CRJ-200's, and CRJ-900's as Northwest Airlink.
Compass ( a wholy owned subsidary of Northwest) operates EMB-175 as Northwest Airlink
Pinnacle Airlines (a subsidary of Pinnacle Holdings, which also owns Colgan), operates CRJ-200 as Northwest Airlink, and will soon begin to fly CRJ-900's as Delta Connection.

Pinnacle does not operate any of the CRJ-900's used by NWA.

CR9 service out of MSP started in June, starts flying out of DTW in Mid-Sept.
E75 service out of MSP starts on 8/21, starts flying out if DTW in Jan.

I see that the new plane here is meant to replace what used to be flown by the old DC9-10s series of aircraft...Those routes were formerly flown/replaced by the Mesaba ARJs...but of course as we all know, 4 stovepipes on any airliner, in cluding the ARJ "appears" too expenseive to operate....to the bean counters...Thats too bad because in my opinion the ARL/BAe146 is more akin ot the a DC9 width wise than any of the ERJs or CRJs....

That E-175 is a sexy piece of work. I can't wait to see one of those here in IND in the NW colors.

Ditto for seeing them in ROC  Smile

...is delayed due to ATC CONSTRAINTS, so it will be interesting to see how the re-schedule to accommodate given 2 planes and the pivot around MSP.

That means that passengers will be writing into NWA demanding to be compensated for the inconvenience and someone on A.net will start a thread stating Northwest doesn't care."

It looks like MSPDFW will be flown with the idle aircraft (won't be idle tomorrow due to BNAMSP starting tomorrow) and swapping planes and delaying MSPMSO.

Quoting EMBQA (Reply 3):
The Northwest/Compass E175 has been flying for a few months now and there have already been several threads with pictures

But not in passenger service. Today was the first day for that.

Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 4):
Will NWA present the CRJ900 the same way? After all, they will be used on the network just as much as the E175...

They did, back in June, i was on the aircraft its first day of operations.

Quoting Flyf15 (Reply 7):
this airplane, although it has first class, long range, and will be serving major cities.... is somehow not good enough to be a mainline aircraft and will be contracted out to a regional airline.

Some of the major cities are not DC-9 replacement flights, in fact its taking over a CRJ-200 time slot. Secondly, the E175 is allowing cities to be served year round again that were seasonal like YVR. I also wouldnt call MSO a major city.

Quoting Flyf15 (Reply 11):
Yeah, I know thats what the article says, but I'll bet you a dollar that in the end, the Embraer jets (along with CRJ-900) will be the DC-9 replacement.

They are too small, the DC-9 (100-125 seats) is still widely needed. Its not decided yet.

Quoting Luisca (Reply 15):
Wont the DC-9s be replaced by E95s in mainline?

No official word, that was the thinking of it originally.

Quoting ZuluLima (Reply 27):
Sexy on the outside...bland on the inside. NW should have used a splash of red on the headrests or something. I saw one here in DFW nearly a month ago, what took so long for the official unveiling?

Certification for crews.

Quoting N801NW (Reply 31):
FWIW, the non-stop MHT- MSP flight moves from an A319 to the Compass E-175 on November 4th.

Which is allowing it to go year round again. A kid up here would often have to go GFK-MSP-DTW-MHT because the MSP-MHT non-stop didn't exist during the winter time.


Good to hear that it will serve new destinations from DTW, and probably MSP (Possible RNO back). However, with that said the E175's will be mostly MSP based and the CRJ-900's are mostly going to be DTW based.
