JetBlue Airways to decide between CSeries and E-jet E2 family

Enviado
 
Montreal - JetBlue Airways is looking for new 100-seaters to replace its 60 Embraer E190. The most probable candidates are Bombardier's CSeries and the Embraer's new generation E-Jet E2s. (airlinerwatch.com) Más...

bombardier's c series has begun with great reviews from both passengers and airline accountants. I would not be surprised if upon getting the C series into operation, that they could eventually acquire many more hundreds , making great profits and offering decent seating and other ammenities.

Embraer has a slight advantage in that they will probably take JetBlue's current E-jets off their hands for a credit whereas the last thing Airbus/Bombardier wants is a bunch of mid-life E-90s
On the other hand, JetBlue makes no secret of the high maintenance costs of the Embraer fleet and the C-series has a track record now of low operating costs, reliability and passenger satisfaction. If the C-series wins this one, the tipping point will have been passed so I would expect major discounts by both Airbus and Boeing to get this contract.

I was a flight attendant on ERJ145's here in the States. We called them jungle jets as well. I'd much rather be in a 145 than a cramped CRJ200. As far as seats go, it's the airlines who dictate the interior of the cabin. I'd love to fly on the new C-series and people do seem to be pleased. However the airline operating them can turn a great aircraft into a piece of trash by the way they operate them.

I didn't think they were being produced anymore. To me it just seemed the CRJ was cramped. The 700's on up are nice. You do have a point about the CRJ 200'S. They are cheaper and easier to maintain. I wasn't too picky about what I had to fly on. As long as it has wings and I'm getting paid I was happy.

If the nicest thing someone can say about the CR2 is that it's nicer than a DASH-8 that's not a particularly glowing review of them, is it?

Should be an easy decision, but I'm biased. I think the only thing the E Jet has going for it is they are the incumbent supplier. Other than that, the CSeries has proven itself as the most modern, comfortable, reliable and efficient regional jet an airline could buy - says the airlines who own them.

Wait, I thought B6 disliked the E-190, not just because of high maintenance costs; I thought the size was not optimal and the dispatch reliability was not great. The title of this article is misleading - nowhere does it say that B6 is choosing between the CSeries or E-jet E2. They are keeping all options open, it says. Based on what I've heard, I would be surprised if they go with another Embraer product.

A few weeks ago, JetBlue announced they were awaiting the decision of the trade commission before looking to replace their 190's which they wanted to do for all the reasons you listed. That could only have meant they would consider the C-series, but my take was they knew the prices would drop if Embraer had competition.

The obvious answer would be to go with the E190 E2 given they already operate the E190, which they were the launch customer of. But I would not be surprised if Bombardier undercuts Embraer by offering them a sweeter irresistible deal for the CSeries. We'll just have to wait and see. It could go either way

That's true - but remember they are not happy with the E-190 due to it being a maintenance hog.

JetBlue should pick used A319s simple cheap fix. If not what about the A319NEO? However, the C-Series sounds like an interesting option with it now being a joint venture with Airbus.

Get rid of the E-Junk!!!

The 319 is dead. Airbus knows it but hasn't had a public funeral for it. One of the reasons most aviation enthusiasts site the Airbus take over of the C Series program is they know the jet is much better than the 319 that nobody was ordering.

The E190 wasn't a particularly good jet, but came out at a time when there wasn't much to choose from.
