And JetBlue announced order for 60 today. It was between this one and the E2, which now goes partially under the Boeing wing.

How does this 2-3 seating work, doesn't it have to be somewhat balanced?

Your right. For some reason this just looks a little off.

What if someone flew one before today, does he get to list both aircraft in the Aircraft List thread?

...And Boeing and Embraer officially announce a merger:


Airbus swallows Bombardier, Boeing swallows Embraer... all that's left is Fokker.
