Longest RJ Flight You've Personally Taken

The thread about Mike Rowe's critique of the CRJ-700 on long flights got me thinking about long RJ flights in general, so I thought I'd start this thread...

The longest one I've taken was CLT-IAH on an ExpressJet/CO Express ERJ-145, which took close to 3 hours. I generally like the ERJ as far as RJs go, but after that long I was starting to feel a tad claustrophobic in that narrow tube, and it was starting to get uncomfortable thanks to my left leg being scrunched over due to the curvature of the plane.

Longest so far is IAH-CLT on a CO E135. In September I will be on a DL CR9 on IAH-SLC

Mine would be DFW-LAX on Skywest. Three and a half hour flight, and thank God I was in economy plus! My next longest would be IAH-CHS on Expressjet, two and a half hours and it wasn't that bad because IMO the ERJ is a lot roomier than the CRJs.

My longest turboprop flight is MYR-EWR on a Colgan Q400.

Either MCI-PHX or SAT-PHX on Mesa CR9. Can't remember which is longer. Both flights sucked though.

Also, SAT-CLT on Mesa CR9. I've done that one multiple times and it is horrible every time.

I've taken the E-145 EWR-OKC (or vice-versa) a handful of times. The longest westbound journey clocked in at four hours, three minutes wheels-up/wheels-down. To put it in perspective, it was 11 minutes short of a LAX-JFK flight I had and nine minutes longer than a ATL-LAX I had.

Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?

I think I had an ERJ-145 flight from IAH to IAD last year. I am pretty sure it was a RJ, at least. Can't remember for sure. It was a really uncomfortable flight, especially since someone took my seat and I was wedged into a window seat.

My longest RJ flight was AUS-IAD (1,297mi) on a CR7 in 2008. Mercifully I was seated in the aisle seat of the first row of economy. My longest CR2 flight was DEN-BNA (1,012mi) in 2010. I had the aisle seat in the exit row, but I still remember to this day how uncomfortable I was on that flight.

PIT-DEN on UA (ExpressJet). 1290 miles, roughly 3hrs into the wind. Yeah, that was awful.

I got rebooked onto that when UA cancelled my original flight months (via ORD) and the idiot agent wouldn't rebook me except on that flight.

Routed CLT-MEM-PHX on a USE/Mesa CR9 due to a misconnect. We spent almost 6 hours on that beast. The hardest most uncomfortable seats ever sat on. The seats had the old HP logo on them so hopefully they've been replaced/refurbished since then. The F/A's were good with personality and service, but it was a hard trip for them as well.


watch what you want. you may get it.

They have replaced the covers, but still feel like sitting on a brick.

I've only taken 3 flights on RJs
SJC-LAX actual sector time 1h01min CR7
ORD-CLT actual sector time 1h27min CR7
MEM-IAH actual sector time 2h19min (due weather enroute) E145

actually I found the Embraer quite pleasant on the one seat side

2h52 block time on an E-190, I guess. But that doesn't feel like an RJ  

I have a 3h block time flight on a Fokker 50 coming up... So my longest prop flight will hopefully be longer than my longest RJ flight.

EWR-OMA - 1134 miles, ~3hrs on an E145. Thanks United!  

Not sure if this is classed as a regional aircraft, but flew on an Austrian Airlines Fokker 100 VIE-TBS in 2006 which was almost 1500 miles. Was quite surprised the F100 had that range.

SLC-CVG on a 9E CR9, 1450 miles. I was lucky to get an upgrade on that flight. That was a one-off flight added to the schedule for the night before OH shut down. I think that they were shuffling a lot equipment around that night.

Longest prop flight was SEA-BZN (543 miles) on Q400, which I've done several times and will do again next week.

YYZ-IAH on a QK CRJ-705 back in 2012 clocked in at 03:32 hours gate to gate. It was blocked at 03:15 hrs but we had to restart the engines on the taxiway due to some problems with it.

In October I'm flying EWR-PBI on UA Express (although on an E170). Block time is around 3 hours.

Other relatively long RJ flights I've taken are ORD-TUL/OKC, both 2 hrs on a mix of CR7s/E45s.

If you count F50 as a RJ I'm booked on a RKV-KUS r/t later this year. Around 2,5 hrs each way.

Depending on whether or not you consider the Fokker 100 a regional jet, my longest flight on one was 2:50 from REC to GRU or 1:57 from MDT to ORD on an ERJ 145.

My longest RJ flight (MAN-MUC, LH CR1 and CR7, 704mi) is 11mi longer than my longest prop flight (CBR-BNE, QF Q400, 693mi). I was disappointed to discover this, as I thought that my longest prop flights were longer.

I've done EWR-YYT and back on a CoEx E-145XR. On the way up to Newfoundland we spent over two and a half hours getting to the runway so we were on the plane for over five hours!

The longest I've taken was ten plus years ago, PWM to ATL on a CRJ-200 with either Comair or ASA? I've forgotten which? It's usually a 2 hour 45 minute flight southbound.
