I was looking at pictures of Bae 146s/ Avro RJs and wondered which airline flies the longest 146/RJ service? Does anyone have any answers???

It may not be the longest, but NW (Mesaba)'s RJ85 flies MSP-HPN (White Plains, NY), which is a decent distance.

I was on a Bae 146 flight this summer from Alice Springs (in Central Australia) to Cairns (Northeast Australia). It took about three hours if I remember correctly. It was quite a nice flight  Smile

I know NW does a DFW-MEM run with it.

NW also runs EWR-MEM with an ARJ, and also PHL-MEM. But I doubt those come close to HPN-MSP.

ASP-CNS 904 mi
MSP-HPN 1021 mi
BKK-CCU 999 mi
BKK-PBH 1175 mi
EWR-MEM 946 mi

So far, Druk Air's Bangkok-Paro is in the lead.. does Air Canada use the 146 to Florida? Those routes would probably come close. How bout the European carriers?

Air Canada Jazz uses the BAe146-200 on the YVR-YXY route, thats about 3 hours give or take a bit, and thank god they are looking at changing it back to the B732 on this service instead of the 146. At the moment it is technecly a "domestic" route beeing flown by a "regional" aircraft, so yeah we prefer the old 732 (more legroom, better seats, better service, more cargo, etc. etc. compared with the 146)

What could possibly go wrong?

Australian Air Express fly the BAE 146-300 Perth-Adelaide which is around 3 hours. QANTAS also used to fly Adelaide-Karlgoolie in the 146-200 and still flies Canberra-Adelaide with the BA 146-200. Ansett used to have really long 146 flights within WA e.g Perth-Broome.

I'd say Dublin-Malaga, CityJet 146-200 service. Bangkok-Paro is a similar distance but is not nonstop.

With our RJ85 the longest route we fly is MUC-HEL.
Great circle map says 980 miles but it is a bit more in real life.
Something around 1050NM!

Dublin-Malaga is 1160 miles. For ARJ aircraft the longest is probably Christmas Island - Perth which is 1618 miles and served by an RJ70.

What seating configuration does NW use? BA uses 3-3 which is really uncomfortable, particularly towards the rear of the aircraft. I flew on SN Brussels and they use a much more comfortable 2-3 layout.

SN Brussels Airlines flies BRU-FCO, BRU-MAD and BRU-HEL with the ARJ85/100.

Long flights! Luckily we have the 2-3 configuration which is much more comfortable than the 3-3 of LH and BA for example.
