They're on their way...

The first 2 of Flybe's Embraer 175's, G-FBJA and G-FBJC, were pictured yesterday (25/11/11) on their delivery flight in Gran Canaria. One of the first routes the E75 is scheduled to fly is Birmingham to Dusseldorf (3 daily rotations, replacing a Bombardier Dash 8). Fingers crossed it'll be at BHX in the next few days! There was also an announcement from Flybe regarding a finance deal for the new E-Jets:

I'm gonna say the 2 things are related. It seems that the assembled E75's were sitting in Brazil, and Embraer were waiting for Flybe to sort out how they were going to pay for them. But they're on their way now!
