An order for three more E175s from American Airlines has pushed its network fleet total for the 76-seat E-Jet to over 100 aircraft. Deliveries will be completed this year. AA’s Envoy Air subsidiary will operate the E175s.
The E175 is immensely popular with North American carriers. The E-Jet can easily be configured in three classes to offer product consistency with larger mainline airplanes. American Eagle’s E175s have 12 First Class, 64 Main Cabin and Main Cabin Extra seats.
To date, Embraer has sold over 800 E175s to customers around the world. North American customers account for more 85% of those orders, or over 700 aircraft.
