It's the E195-E2. source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embraer_E-Jet_E2_family
Somebody recently mentioned that the old E190 has too much maintenance trouble caused by too high power demand from the engines.
A new engine is available, there is not much 4 abreast competition and at least from aspect ratio the wing looks neat.
How are the geared engines doing by now?
Are any troubles known of engines used on E2 aircraft?
Is PW giving enough attention to Embraer's engine or do they focus on Airbus's engines? I remember Airbus got in one month as many engines as Bombardier in one year even though Bombardier was the much earlier customer.
