SAO JOSE DOS CAMPOS, Brazil, Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Embraer and American Airlines Inc. signed a firm order for 15 E175 jets in a 76-seat configuration. The contract has a value of USD 705 million, based on current list prices, and will be included in Embraer's 2018 fourth-quarter backlog. Deliveries will take place in 2020.
