Perhaps that will start to change in 2018 when Q400s start being retired, but sucks for everyone on those routes in the meantime. Every time I've heard someone make a comment to FAs on the PDX-OAK Q400s, they've always had to apologize and say E175s are coming soon! No, they're not ...
There's theoretical and there's reality.

Theoretically, the 175 is a more efficient plane. In reality, they have a choice of upgrading equipment on existing routes or expanding to new routes. With the competitive landscape currently, they're choosing to expand.

yes. Me too. I'm hoping it's not as bland as the SkyWest birds but I don't have high hopes.

Got upgraded on a SEA-SMF Skywest E175 last week; I was impressed they managed a full meal service in F on that flight (only about 90 minutes). It's like another world compared to the Q400; with all the PR around the post-merger rebranding, hopefully the QX E175s will be as good or better.

On the same trip I happened to spot N620QX on the ground at SMF, during one of the many trips it seems to have made that day (crew familiarization, I am guessing?).

Was it officially announced that QX would offer FC products? Horizon, to my knowledge, have never offered FC, no? Somehow, I've always thought it would be an all Y seating aboard any QX flight.

Would you care if your flight was operated by OO or QX?

I wouldn't care, apart from an irrational prejudice for QX as somehow more "homegrown" than OO, but that has nothing to do with anything. And I have no insider knowledge, but if I were AS, I would want the fleet to be standardized as much as possible. It seems like it would be an operational nightmare otherwise.

I vaguely remember reading a piece of AS marketing where they mentioned the ability to offer F as a key advantage of the E175, but I can't find it to back me up. In any case that seems to be the trend post-VX-merger.

Yes.

The E175s for Horizon Air will feature aerodynamic enhancements introduced by Embraer in 2014, such as new wingtips and other technical improvements that reduce fuel burn. The 76-seat aircraft will be configured in a three-class layout, with 12 first class seats, 16 in premium class, and 48 in the main cabin.

Looks like something broke on N620QX cause it was coming back for OKC to PDX when it diverted to Eugene, then hopped up to PDX. From there it went to Fresno, maybe they thought skywest could fix it, and then back to OKC.

The aircraft is currently undergoing proving runs with the FAA. You'll see it flying all over the place, testing various scenarios, including diversions. Nothing broken.

Got to enjoy this plane for SEA to PDX on Thursday morning. I'd do first on a 175 over a 737 any day.

Thanks for the clarification. I did not think about it being a new type for QX and the FAA wanting to make sure they had a handle on plane ops. I hope to see it does SNA way at some point

The QX E175 will be operating the SNA-ABQ route when it starts in August.
