The Delta Ejets are actually E175/E170s operated by SkyWest or Compas Airlines, which are regional airlines regulated by a scope clause which only allows them to be configured with 76 seats. Consequently, there is more leg room giving a much more comfortable ride for passengers. As others have indicated in this thread, the Ejets are popular with pilots and passengers alike. I can't understand why VA turfed them out and replaced them with Fokkers/ATRS on their thin routes. According to this, one of VA's leased Ejets will be returning to Australia to be flown by Cobham. https://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-e190-451.htm
