Forbes: Embraer Rolls Out New EJet Amid Major Strategy Shift By U.S. Airlines

Embraer, the third-largest commercial aircraft manufacturer in the world, rolls out its new E190-E2 jet on Thursday.
The EJet is a passenger-friendly, 2×2 configuration with large overhead bins favored by passengers who don’t like the cramped, regional jets previously made by Embraer—the ERJ-145—and by Bombardier, the CRJ Series.

Embraer are definitley good aircraft but with Bombardier not making much headway with it's new C series and the entry of Russian and Chinese aircraft into the market it's going to be a tough sector (mind you plenty of new aircraft needed as the Russian jets keep crashing).

All due respect a bit of an exaggeration.

And Mitsubishi MRJ is making progress as well.

Doesn't Embraer already have a lot of E2 orders?

True but it's crashes/hours flying ratio is not stellar. If the FAA have allowed it into US aerospace I am sure it is "safe", but I would still avoid.
