There is a shark on the track. No, it's not a nightmare scene caused by severe flooding, but an Embraer E190-E2 plane actually painted by a special white shark delivery.
In recent months, these ships have generated reactions and carried out photos from Instagram for their trips from Maldives to South Africa during a world tour.
This is the airplane of the exhibition of the family of regional launches E2 of Boeing and Embraer, which covers E175-E2, E190-E2 and E195-E2, and that it steals some of the attention that its competitor, the Airbus A220, has recently been cool.
The A220 series It was originally created by the Canadian manufacturer Bombardier as the C Series, and the first were sold to Swiss International Air Lines, which have been used since 2016. AirBaltic became the second operator of the C Series, by the end of 2016, and in Korea Air received its own transmission, in December of 2017, and Delta also put orders and plans to start regular A220 flights in 2019.

E2 vs. A220
However, it was in October 2017 that Airbus announced a partnership with Bombardierthat the biggest factor in the manufacturer and the change of brand from Series C to A220 began during the Farnborough Air Show, in July 2018.
The rivalry between The E2 series of Embraer and the Airbus A220 have reached its zenith at Farnborough, when JetBlue Airways sent 60 A220 on the E2, replace its Embraer 190 float. The first deliveries of these are not expected until 2020, but for travelers who know and may love the JetBlue fleet aircraft (the airline currently operates only Airbus A320 and Embraer E190s), the change to Airbus A220s means losing details anticipated that it is a registered trademark from Embraer: not having middle seats.
Embraer's world tour was the opportunity for the Brazilian airplanes to prove customers, as well as the traveling public that it also has new airplanes and with technical and comfortable advances.

Larger windows, larger containers
So what are these advances, specifically?
During the details, for examplel pack room and seat, There are decisions that each airline has to make, a new generation airplane offers some guaranteed benefits for passengers, such as redesigned windows with larger frames to make the cabin more illuminated, upper containers, which are 40% larger and able to locate the Standard Handbag with wheels, first, and without support tracks under the seat to give more space for the legs.
"The objective is to keep the passenger's personal space," said Rodrigo Silva and Souza, vice president of Merkatrado for Embraer Commercial Aviation, CNN Travel.
The interiors of the plane E2 point to "wide body cabin" to feel "to give the passengers the impression of having more space, or to be in a larger aircraft".
While travelers can feel that they fly in a larger aircraft, there is a clear feature that is undoubtedly Embraer, and that will continue with the E2 aircraft: the lack of intermediate seats.

Improved fuel efficiency
Even the most needed airlines can locate intermediate seats in these planes; the configuration will be 2-2, with the passengers assigned to a window or a room.
Embraer even offers a cabinet price with step seats, with the aim of increasing the privacy.
From the technical point of view, the improvement of fuel efficiency and the reduction of emissions are the main points in favor, and it is possible thanks to a completely new wing design. The airplane is also lighter in general, due to the use of the latest flight technology.
While the shark snik airplane continues its world tour, there are already Embraer E2 jets that enter the regular passengers.
Where to fly?
The first E190-E2 was delivered in April to the regional subsidiary of Scandinavian Airlines, Widerøe, and the airline now flies three around Norway.
The largest E2 client is SkyWest, a regional airline that flies for companies like American Airlines, Delta, United and Alaska Airlines.
Your order, the first that was set when the E2 program was launched at the Paris Air Show 2013, there are 100 units of the smaller E2 plane, the E175-E2, which can carry 80 to 90 passengers, according to the configuration.
This means that the new E2 jets will surprise passengers in the United States with ampler interiors, larger upper containers, although it will only be in 2021 when the first deliveries are planned. FlightGlobal reports that Embraer also stressed Alaska flights, Spirit and United States, because the US airlines most likely benefit from replacing part of their current fleet of narrow bodies with an E2 aircraft.
AerCap, an independent aircraft airplane with airline customers worldwide, signed the second largest command of E2, with more than 20 of each of the largest variants of E190-E2 and E195-E2, and confirmed that the airfield of Kazakhstan It's the first place.
When will your deliveries start? In 2019
Blue, Brazil; Helvetic, Switzerland; Wataniya from Kuwait and Tianjin Airlines from China also ordered variants of the E2 family.
