Boeing appears to be looking into a partnership or even an acquisition with Embraer. The Brazilian government does not want too much to happen because they do not want a loss of a large company, however they are all for monetary benefits having Boeing giving a hand.
I could see Boeing opening an E2 line in Renton or Charleston and I could even see Embraer helping with development of the ‘797’. Whatever happens with this will be interesting and how it plays out in the coming months will sure be interesting. Boeing is a very large company however they have not been focusing on smaller aircraft since they retired production of the 717. This will be the jump-start to get back into production of smaller birds. The 737 is one of their most profitable aircraft, something smaller could do very well in the point to point market we see today.
The E2 series also has not been selling well in the United States, airlines have been preferring the CS, 737, A320, and even the CRJ. I can see Boeing pushing this aircraft on airlines like American or United that could be using smaller aircraft.
