Embraer and American Airlines Inc. signed a firm order for 15 E175 jets in a 76-seat configuration. The contract has a value of $705 million, based on current list prices, and will be included in Embraer’s 2018 fourth-quarter backlog. Deliveries will take place in 2020.

Combined with the airline’s previous orders for the E175, this new contract results in a total of 104 E175 jets for American Airlines since 2013. The most recent order took place in May 2018 for 15 aircraft.

American Airlines selected Envoy, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group, to operate the 15 aircraft, which will be configured with a total of 76 seats, being 12 in First Class and 64 in Main Cabin, including Main Cabin Extra seats.

Including this new contract, Embraer has sold more than 435 E175s to airlines in North America since January 2013, earning more than 80% of all orders in this 76-seat jet segment.

Embraer is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial jets up to 150 seats. The Company has 100 customers from all over the world operating the ERJ and E-Jet families of aircraft. For the E-Jets program alone, Embraer has logged more than 1,800 orders and 1,400 deliveries, redefining the traditional concept of regional aircraft.

Leadership of American Eagle Pilot’s Union rejects management’s recent concessionary contract proposal, is this the end of Envoy?

Envoy’s (formerly American Eagle Airlines) (subsidiary of American Airlines Group) (Dallas/Fort Worth) pilots, represented by the Airline Pilots Association (ALPA), will not be voting on the new proposed company contract any time soon. The Master Executive Council of the American Eagle Pilot’s Union, voted down the latest contract proposal by the company. The company’s proposal would have given the company pilot work rule and further pay concessions in return for new Embraer 175 regional jets to be flown by Envoy’s pilots.

Envoy’s management has made it clear that if the contract was not approved the company would be reduced and aircraft reassigned to other American Eagle carriers.  Once reduced in size, Envoy would be liquidated.

ALPA did not want its Envoy members to be flying for rates lower than other airlines and will now ask management about a timetable for liquidation. ALPA will help Envoy pilots find jobs at other carriers.

Is this the end of Envoy (like Delta’s Comair)?

American Eagle Airlines to become Envoy, will continue to operate under the American Eagle brand

AMERICAN AIRLINES GROUP ENVOY LOGO

American Eagle Airlines, Inc. (American Eagle Airlines 2nd) (Dallas/Fort Worth), a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group Inc., announced today that the company will be changing its name to Envoy in spring 2014. This change is being made to give the company its own distinct identity and eliminate the confusion between the company’s current name and American Eagle, the regional flying brand of American Airlines, Inc. With the formation of American Airlines Group, the 10 carriers currently providing regional service for the legacy American and US Airways networks will all eventually fly under the American Eagle brand.

American Eagle Airlines has more than 14,000 employees and a growing portfolio of business outside of its flying operations, including a robust aviation ground handling operation. Envoy was chosen as the company’s new name after an extensive selection and vetting process that included looking at more than 1,000 names and considering feedback from American Eagle Airlines employees. The name was chosen because Envoy is reflective of what the company does for the airlines it works with – serving as their ambassador and a representative to their customers.

Customers traveling on both American Eagle Airlines and American Eagle-branded regional air service will not experience any changes to their travel experience as a result of this name change. Ticket counters and gates will continue to be branded American and American Eagle and Envoy’s aircraft will continue to operate using the American Eagle brand and livery. Once the necessary regulatory processes and approvals are complete, “Operated by Envoy” will be added to the company’s aircraft paint scheme and noted on customers’ tickets much like it is for American’s other regional carrier partners currently flying using the American Eagle brand.
