They might even be assigned to NECRegional surges as the window size is not too important for those passengers ?I agree with this. The Amfleets aren't too terrible, especially since they've been refreshed and given a new, much smoother wheel profile. I think at first, before the replacements come along, they will be distributed around the network where there is need for extra capacity/space for social distancing. Then, once more are replaced, most will be scrapped and a small portion will be kept for backups/surge travel times like Thanksgiving. At least until the option orders are exercised.
