B6 to selling 11 E190
 
This is very sad news to hear. Unfortunately, B6 will have to selling 11 E190 aircaft to a third party but, we are unsure for which airlines will take E190. So here the link:

http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/gener...l%2011%20E190s


JetBlue Airways has reached an agreement in principle to sell 11 of the 12 Embraer 190 aircraft it was scheduled to receive in 2013 and 2014 to a “third party” that the carrier would not identify.
Perhaps, DL will take E90 or Republic/Frontier will take E90. Whether who will have a decide to acquire E190 aircraft.

That article is from 2009. Hardly current.

It isn't much of a surprise given the announcements during the Paris Air Show indicating they were cutting the E90 options and that they are looking for larger aircraft in some markets.

It is too bad as I really like flying on the E90, but such is life.

I think they are looking for better aircraft and better technology. Can B6 will have a consider to orders some MRJ or CRJ700 aircraft? Why they don't have to orders some E75 or E70 aircraft is a right size.

:rolleyes:

They're getting larger aircraft, not smaller ones. Why in the world would they look at 70 seat planes??

If they paid typical 70 seat wages then it would make a ton of sense to look at 70 seats for the short haul network.

With 70 seat planes you would need a minimum of 2 FA's (sames as the 100 seat planes) . Without the revenue for the extra 30 passengers it would not make sense to do .
