SAO PAULO Jan 24 (Reuters) - Brazil's Embraer SA sees demand for more new regional jets at AMR Corp's American Airlines even after Republic Airways ordered up to $4 billion worth of new E-175 jets to operate in American's network, a senior executive said Thursday.

Paulo Cesar de Souza e Silva, the head of Embraer's commercial aviation unit, said in a telephone interview on Thursday that the Republic deal "did not exhaust" American's demand for larger regional jets.
