No more then 3-4 years old as a max. The -135 is still a very new jet in the Eagle inventory. VERY sweet too........ I flew one from BOS to BNA several times.

Most (if not all) of the ERJ-135s that AE has were originally ordered by Business Express before AE bought them sometime in the mid-90s. I think they started taking delivery around 1997-98.

The age of an aircraft does not matter much as long as it has been properly maintained.

VirginA346,

No worries, Embraer makes a great plane in my opinion, I have flown the 145 a few times and it is awesome. Sweet ride, pretty comfortable considering as well..

Logos is correct about Eagle taking their first -135's from BEX, but off a little on the time line. We had placed an order for something like 30 with options on 30 in 1997. When we went from American Connection to American Eagle (still flying in BEX colors) in late 1998, Eagle took over the full -135 orders....and by then AE had announced that BEX would be fully absorbed into the Eagle system. The last BEX service was in Sept 2000. (not the mid '90's)

I like the Embraer Jet. I flew on it once with American Eagle, a 135 from LGA to DTW. It rises quicly and quietly like the Super 80 when it takes off, it flies smootly, it is a very modern aircraft. The only thing I didn't like about it is that you have not much space in your overhead bin to put your carry on luggage, I had to keep my attache case with me however I could stow it under the seat in front of me. Nevertheless it's a pleasure to fly on it, I was impressed with it.
I've never flown on the 145 but I imagine flying on that one is the exact same thing except that there are maybe a couple more rows in the cabin (yes no need to say main cabin since there's no First or Business Class!). The Embraer and the Super 80 are the two aircraft that I personally find most pleasant to fly on.

PSU.DTW.SCE, thanks for the detailed info about the Eagle fleet present and future.

EMBQA,

I stand corrected on the time line. I actually meant the order came sometime in the mid-90s, but I did not realize that BEX stuck around until 2000. Thanks for the info.

Cheers,

The only interior differences between the 135, 140, and 145 are; from about a/c N640 (EMB-145LR), also the 135 and 140 have the newer seats with the winged headrest. From a/c N843 and above (ERJ-135KL aka. 140) have the new bi-fold lav doors instead of the sliding doors, also the new 145s (N656 and above) also have the new doors. Each has a different galley arrangment, some minor relocation of the emergency equipment, and the most obvious diffence is the lenght which changes the passanger zones we use for weight and balance.


I reject your reality and subsitute my own

Logos-

Yup- It was December (12-15) 2000....Somewhere around there, but by then the fleet had been cut down to around 12 aircraft. Most of the Saab's had already been returned to the Leasing Company and where flying with other airlines. If I remember, the last flight was from Boston to Bangor, ME.

Hey Virgin have fun on your flight on MQ's EMB fleet. I'm a ramper for eagle in RST and they are very nice planes to fly on, beware like stated earlier to not bring a huge carry on, or else they will valet tag it and will load it on the airplane when you get to the jetbridge and then you will get it when you get off the plane at the gate at your destination.

BTW this is my first post and just wanted to say hello to a.net members I have been reading these forums for a while and finally joined.
