    As I speculated here, looks like there are no more mainline LAX-AUS flights - everything swapped with DL connection ERJ-175s from what I see in ITA.

    I believe this was the only B717 service to Austin - I was actually looking forward to flying on one.

    While they have fewer seats (I think), I thought most were happy with the 175's.

    Agree, the 175 is a great bird. Same number of FC seats as the 717!

    The E175 is a sweet ride and beats the competitors CRJ-700s. :)

    I was about to say the same thing. While the E175 is not technically mainline, it is a great ride and in F is as good as the 717.
