Can Embraer directly compite with Airbus and Boeing?
As Embraer has received its type certificate for the second and biggest aircraft in its E2 series,,, Also Brazil, US and Europe granted approval.
So it could be cost effective for commuter flights isn't it?

Doubtful in the US since it exceeds the weight limits in most pilot scope clauses. Should sell well in other areas but it’s still a rehash of a older airframe unlike the A220 being a clean sheet design.

The CS300 (and undoubtedly now the 500) is the only real competition. Wide enough fuselage to compete. You donít need to duck if youíre tall, or deal with pretend overhead storage, trans Atlantic range if you want.... Itís the real deal. Compare fuselage widths, which seems to matter, and Bombardier wins hands down.

Isn't Embraer now owned by Boeing?

No, the partnership is still busy jumping the regulatory hurdles.

I don't think the E2 was ever designed to be in direct competition with the 737 or A320. Embarer has always said its focus is on the regional market. It will probably replace and compete with older regional jets, like the Avro RJ / BAe146, B717, CRJs and possibly some medium capacity turboprops (Dash 8's, ATRs).

Perhaps by end of 2019...

Of course there is also the potential for added benefit in this circumstance to be gained from association with airframes and projects untarnished by current events.
