Per JetBlue PR The aircraft’s advanced aerodynamics combined with a specially designed Pratt & Whitney engine help the aircraft deliver approximately 40 percent lower fuel burn per seat than JetBlue’s current E190 fleet http://blueir.investproductions.com/investor-relations/press-releases/2018/0...Jump to post
With A220-300, I could see JFK/BOS/FLL-SNA/BUR JFK/BOS-EYW Would A220-100 work with HPN-LAX/SFO? More importantly, they can finally do red-eyes flights with something other than A320s. A220-300 will be a boon in the secondary transcon market. I don't think JFK/BOS-EYW will work on the -300. Don't k...Jump to post

This will bring Boeing back into the bizjet market and Embraer further into the .mil market. I would have rather seen Northrop/Lockheed partner with Embraer.

What is the future of the sub-75 seat (50 seat) regional jet, to replace the CRJ100/200 and ERJ140/145 size of aircraft? What is in production now?

I suspect it’s a refinement of the BR725 presently only on the G650. Add in wing refinements, the extra climb thrust FBW technology from the G7000 and you have a 500-700 nm range increase easily. Should be a great competitor to the new GLF models. GF No, it's a new engine family based on Advance 2 ...Jump to post

While possible, Embraer just doesn't offer the same as Bombardier does. The C-series slots perfectly into the Airbus or Boeing portfolio as A319/73G and A320/738 replacements.

A lot of people are missing the obvious... A CS500 doesn't "compete" with the A320 series, if they're made by the same company, it just broadens Airbus' appeal to customers.
