Disclaimer: This topic is moderator approved. Although it may seem similar to the other Delta E175 topic, the image in that topic is related to the E75S, also known as the “Short Wing” varient. This topic relates to the E75L, also referred to as the “Long Wing” variant. The differences in the aircraft reside within the construction of the wingtip. While the E75S has the standard wingtips, the E75L option comes with extended and angeled raked wingtips.
Hello IFC. With the coming Embraer E-Jet family rework, I’m requesting the addition of the Delta Connection Embraer E75L. The E75L is a staple within Delta’s regional subsidiary, flying from each one of their hubs under contract with SkyWest Airlines and Republic Airways. Without its addition after the rework, many route opportunities would be inaccessible due to the lack of this livery within the game.
Embraer E-Jet Family:
The Embraer E-Jet family is a series of four-abreast narrow-body short- to medium-range twin-engine jet airliners, carrying 66 to 124 passengers, produced by Brazilian aerospace manufacturer Embraer. The aircraft family was first introduced at the Paris Air Show in 1999 and entered production in 2002. The series has been a commercial success primarily due to its ability to efficiently serve lower-demand routes while offering many of the same amenities and features of larger jets. The E-Jet family is used by mainline and regional airlines around the world and is particularly popular with regional airlines in the United States.
Delta Connection is a regional airline brand name for Delta Air Lines, under which a number of individually owned regional airlines primarily operate short- and medium-haul routes. Mainline major air carriers often use regional airlines to operate services via code-sharing agreements in order to increase frequencies in addition to serving routes that would not sustain larger aircraft as well as for other competitive or operational reasons. Delta Connection flights are operated by Delta-owned Endeavor Air and contractors Republic Airways and SkyWest Airlines.
Republic Airways operates 46 E175 aircraft under Delta Connection.
Skywest Airlines operates 71 E175 aircraft under Delta Connection.
