Re: Republic Airways orders 100 E175 plus 100 options

I think that the first 60 of these airframes are for replacing the old E-170's. The rest are for when Republic decides to buy GoJet and park and replace their CR9's with E175's. As a regional pilot, I can say that I wish that every one of these aircraft was flown by a mainline pilot. Mainline gave u...

Re: United Airlines announces order for 25 E-175 and 4 787-9's

The only way they stay scope neutral is by configuring these E75s with only 70 seats which is confirmed by anot...

Just as airlines are ordering larger single aisle narrowbodies, the trend is for larger RJ's.
