Do YOU consider the Ejet 170, 175, 190, and 195's RJ's?

  • NO - cause they fly long distances
  • NO - cause JetBlue & US Airways crew them mainline

  • NO - cause they are comfortable in coach & f/c
  • NO - could easily be flown mainline ~ DC9-30!

Will old style management at American Airlines try to get rid of mainline crews from flying Ejet 190's just as is currently done by US Airways and JetBlue?

They have passenger capacities similar to classic jets like the

Carvelle at United
BAC 111 at Braniff and American
DC9-30 at Delta, Eastern, Continental, TWA, and Northwest
Fokker 100's at American and US Air

HS 121 Trident was yet another airliner. The unstretched versions had about 115 seats total.

If I am not mistaken, Embraer has a design of the EJet that is slightly larger in total passenger count. Spacious 2x2 seating makes the Boeing an Airbus narrow bodies totally redundant for comfortable all coach business travel.

Southwest might not realize this blatantly yet but awareness is growing among industry insiders in this new age of cramped middle seat fee for everything air travel.

When compared to the 737's and A320's,they are regional aircraft meant to serve small thin routes that cannot fill a 160 seat aircraft.
The load capacity is less and also the range is less than the mainline jets by Boeing and airbus.
The 40 to 50 seat RJ's are no longer viable due to high fuel costs and airlines will reduce frequency when using the larger RJ's, less fuel and labor costs and less maintenance due to fewer planes carrying the same number of passengers.
Yeah No Middle Seat

As a passenger, I don't really care, what you call it, Airliner or Aircraft.

For me I call the EJet Spacious. On the other hand, I call the 737 and A320 cramped. At least you don't get stuck in the dreaded middle seat aboard US Airways or JetBlue's smaller EJet Airliners.

Public loves no middle seat. Management loves to pay lower labor rates. Ask ToHo he feels cheated with 20M severance.

Let uss hope Horton does not mess up Parker's success with, operating these very comfortable non middle seat aircraft.
