Do you have a source for this?
KLM website is showing the first direct flight on May 19 instead of May 05.

Labour dispute with the cabin crew unions.

First Air will add three weekly flights between Edmonton and Yellowknife, starting June 1.

The new flights — Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday — mean First Air will fly between the two cities nine times each week.

Seems like a small seat increase and a better plane.

Marginally better in economy seats, but from what I hear, arguably worse in business. The E-Jets primary advantage is in the size range of the jet family, not really in the cabin. (Their disadvantage being operating costs.) The decision is likely because AA's LA hub concept needs the capacity of E190s on other routes, which are crew and maintenance compatible with these E175s, but likely not really to get a selling point.

^Frankly, the ERJ 175 is a much more comfortable plane than the CRJ900. Plus it will be a newer plane. Those CRJ900s are old Mesa airways planes. I think the number of seats is more or less the same.

^ I'm not talking about the capacity of CRJ9 versus E175.

I'm talking about the capacity range of AA's CRJ fleet versus AA's E-Jet fleet.
