The email the company sent out earlier says that the CRJ-900s will be flown by PSA.

"The CRJ900s will be flown on behalf of American by PSA Airlines, Inc., now a subsidiary of American Airlines Group."

And then it went on to say that it is not known yet who will fly the ERJs

"American also has firm orders for 60 Embraer E175 aircraft with options for up to 90 more. American has not decided who will fly the 60 E175s."

Are the ERJ-145s getting replaced at all by either the CRJ-900s or the EMB-175s?

I am going to actually miss the E145's. I love sitting on the "A" side. The only REAL American Eagle aircraft that will be left in a few years will be the CRJ-700's, and by then they will more than likely be operated by Skywest or something like that. RIP Real American Eagle.

They will be operated by whoever is willing to grab their ankles the most at the time to continue to accept McDonald's wages in order to secure new flying (Regardless of how little they will be paid). The regional pilots are their own worst enemy.

I am glad more Embraer's (E175) were ordered.

They are so much more comfortable than the Bombardier's.
