There's a shark on the runway. (neat pictures in the link)

No, it's not some nightmare scenario brought about by severe flooding, but a real-deal Embraer E190-E2 aircraft, painted up in a special great white shark livery.

In recent months, this ferocious flier has been turning heads and starring in travel Instagrams from the Maldives to South Africa while on a world tour and in October, it was spied at Nepal's Kathmandu-Tribhuvan International Airport following a fly-past of Mount Everest.

Nicknamed the Profit Hunter, this is the show plane for Boeing and Embraer's E2 family of regional jets, which encompasses the E175-E2, E190-E2, and E195-E2, and it's stealing some of the attention that's lately been lavished on its competitor, the Airbus A220.

The A220 series was originally created by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier as the C Series, with the first jets off the line sold to Swiss International Air Lines, which has been flying them since 2016. AirBaltic became the second C Series operator in late 2016, and Korean Air took delivery of its own in December 2017, with Delta also placing orders and planning to commence regular A220 flights in 2019.

Saw a version of this article squawked over at FlightAware and it makes me wonder if the writer has any idea about the E-Jets from Embraer, let alone has ever been on one.

None of their EJets have had middle seats. Even the current E170/175/190/195 jets in service have never had a middle seat. Nice quiet rides, but they've never had a middle seat since the first one was launched back in 2003/2004...

BL.
