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


Next flight: IAH-CVG-IAH. UH @Cincinnati Go Coogs!!!

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.

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.

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.

I don't think so. I consider rear mounted engines a defining feature of RJs. An E190 Business Class is better than any of the shorthaul Business Class on A320/737 cabins IMO.

My longest RJ flight is BNA-SLC on an OO CR9 (which operate some brutally long routes ex-SLC). It's 1220 nm and about 3.5 hours westbound. I've never done it in "normal" Y, but it must be brutal.

My longest 50-seater flight by distance is CLT-MSP on various 9E CRJs (some -440s, which were pretty comfortable in the right seats). I remember one flight on that route that went roughly CLT-MBS-GRB-MSP due to some weather over Wisconsin. It was quite a long flight.

DEN-PIA is probably the longest at about 2hrs and 30mins gate to gate. It is on a E145 but if you get lucky you might catch an XR. I always liked the winglets on the tiny Embraers.

Unfortunately, it landed at LAX at 5PM, and the time I saved in flying, I lost on the rush hour LA freeways. All of the rest of my trips to Edwards went through Burbank.

ORD-ELP on CRJ-700 after 28 hours stuck at ORD due to thunderstorms. Block time was about 2:45, but it took a bit longer than that because there was weather enroute that we had to go around.
I learned that seat 5A is probably the best seat in the aircraft on Eagle...coach seat but with more legroom than the J seats had since there is no partition between the sections. Slept most of the way on that one, probably just because I didn't sleep well on the floor at ORD the previous night.

My longest by distance was ORF (Norfolk, VA) -IAH on a ERJ-145. I had an A seat though, which is not bad at all.



Longest flight time was GSP-IAH on an ERJ-145 (I think…I know it was some sort of ERJ). We had very strong headwinds, and IIRC, the flight was over 4 hours. The flight crew told us we would probably have to divert to MOB for fuel, but thankfully, we never had to. At one point we encountered turbulence, and we were told that climbing over the turbulence would take too much fuel and that we would have to put up with the bumps. While deplaning, I asked the pilot how much fuel we had left, and he said about 15 minutes before we hit the reserves.

We missed our connection, but my 8 friends and I eventually made it to Mexico.   


Longest prop ride was EWR-ORF on a Q400.

I don't think I've been on a CRJ longer than a couple hours. I try to avoid those as much as possible. The ERJs are much better, particularly on the single seat side.

My personal longest RJ flight would have to be DFW-MTJ on American Eagle in 2007. The inbound was on a CR2 I believe, and the outbound was on an ATR42. Also had an ATR-42 on ATL-AVL, and CR2 on the outbound on AVL-ATL.

LAS-AUS (CR9)
IAH-MSP (E145)
IAH-YYZ (E145)

I'm guessing IAH-YYZ was the longest, and that was on an E145

E145s and CRJ700s are one thing. I've flowing a few short ~1 hour hops around Europe in the E145s and I thought they were fine for short a short trip; luckily, I've never had to 'suffer' on a CRJ.

That being said: I'm a big fan of the 170s and 190s however. My longest RJ flight(s) have been on JetBlue's E190 JFK-HOU at around 3.5 - 4 hours. I love the ample cabin environment of the bigger Embraers, and their 2x2 is noticeably roomier and more pleasant than on the Dashes. With B6s TVs - it's not a bad way to spend 3.5+ hours at all and I always look to take them if I fly that route. In fact, I'd take a E170/175/190 over 3x3 mainline anyday - not all RJs are created equal, and I'm seriously glad to hear of United Express upguaging at ORD to the bigger Es.

+ EWR-SAV (CO) ERJ-145
+ CLE-JAX (CO) ERJ-145
