I don't know if it's been discussed before, but I was wondering what route there is in the world that is operated by a Regional Airline. The one that comes to my mind is SFO - SAT with United Airlines' SkyWest Partner with a CRJ-700. For me, that's way to long to be stuck on a regional plane...

Is there a longer route that is operated by a regional airline?

being on a CR7 is a comfy ride..........

COEX was operating the XRJ IAH-BOI, which is the same distance.

Although I view the CR7, CR9, E70, E90 to a diff level than the ERJ/CRJ, AC is running IAH-YUL which is about 100 miles longer than SF0-SAT



okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

The only routes mentioned, so far, that go north of 1500 miles are:

IAH-YUL: 1584 mi
ATL-BIL: 1525 mi
DEN-YOW: 1517 mi

SFO-MCI comes close at 1499 mi.

The rest, SFO-SAT included, are all short of 1500.

The AC Jazz CRJ 700 have PTVs and a Business class section, which is already pretty rare for a regional jet of that size. IMO that makes it much more agreeable to fly on a longer route, it's probably even better than some older mainline aircraft... but I'd have to test that in order to judge.

I did ORD-GEG earlier this year on a United Express CRJ-700 each way. Wasn't bad in First, but I wouldn't want to do that in coach (even Economy Plus).

I would think the longest in the former NW network is MSP-YVR. It reaches about 1,434 miles. Good thing it's on a CP E175 and not a CRJ.

There have been some occasions where the CRJ-705 (actually a CRJ-900) normally opperating the flight was downgauged to a CRJ-200 (which doesn't have J or PTVs). At a block time of 3hr 53min (with a -705), THAT is a loooooong flight in the little CRJ-200.

There is a longer route: Lufthansa Cityline used to fly the CRJ-700 on MUC-EVN, which is 1,699 miles, but it's now flown with an Airbus. It might have been FRA-EVN, in which case it would be 1,860 miles but, as the Airbus currently flies MUC-EVN, I suspect it wasn't.

TIP-MAN, at 1,620 miles, is flown by Libyan Arab Airlines with the CRJ900, but I don't think they have a regional arm, so it's 'mainline'.

Air Iceland operate F50 and DHC8-100 routes from RKV to several destinations in Greenland on charters, they are all around the 500+ mile mark, entirely over water.

Air Nostrum fly the CRJ on MAD-CFU, which is 1,243 miles.

Air Baltic operate the F50 from Riga to Simferopol which is 927 miles, the F50s generally serve their regional routes only although I don't think it's a separate airline, but it's a looong way in a prop regardless.

MSP-Jax is 1,100 plus miles on an E-170.

I saw this for the first time the other day and it suprised me that it was flown by a NW Connection Carrier.

That isn't to bad. The E-jets are a lot better than a CRJ-200 or an ERJ-145.

IAH-YYC on AC Jazz CRJ705s is longer than all of those, 1747 mi (1518 nm).

I don't know if it quite fits under the topic, but I did fly a B-1900 ISN-DEN once n/s ( 587 miles ).

It was a back-up flight on a cold weather day, still weight restricted though.



I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning
