Beginning in June COEX is going to be flying the EMB-145-XR on the ONT-IAH leg, it will leave ONT at approximately 12:30a and arrive IAH at around 6:00a. I have a feeling that this is only the beginning of RJ red-eye flying.

Honestly, RJ red eye flying might not necessarily be that bad, especially if you are on the A side. You have the window to lean on and you can stick your feet into the aisle for more legroom.

not bad idea though. Why not fly it if you can do it. You know htey wouldn't have a 737 do it, so whynot do it with an RJ.


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

Excuse my ignorance but I hear the word "Red-eye" everywhere at the moment (I think it's an obsession or something Big grin). I'm not familiar at all with it so can someone explain it to me!

A red-eye flight is a flight that takes place during the middle of the night. For them to work there needs to be a change of time zones by at least two to three hours or be a very long flight. As far as I've seen it is only possible for them to work flying west to east (lax-ord), or south to north (gru-ewr). Either way these flights usually depart at 11pm to 1am local and arrive at 5:30am to 7am local. And just like the name implies when the passengers arrive at their destination after an all nighter that is exactly what there eyes look like!

For the flight the post was about it is going to leave ONT at around 12:40am, and arrive IAH at arround 6am. Business men seem to like these flights because it gives them the ability to arrive at the beginning of the business day.

Comair used to fly a redeye CRJ on LAS-TUL right around August-September 2001, but it was discontinued from October 2001. I flew it on September 27 that year and it wasn't bad at all, as redeyes go.

I dont think that this flight will be too bad but anyone who doesnt like the RJs can just go to LAX (i think its close, right?) and take the mainline flight CO 586 which will have them in at 630am.

Maybe we can get XRJ's flying red-eyes out of SAN/SNA to IAH.

CALMSP: i do not know about san diego (SAN), but orange county (SNA) has a VERY strict evening curfew. planes are forbidden to schedule departing or arriving flights after 10:00 p.m.

I dont think this would work out of SNA due to the curfew restrictions. I believe the airport closes at 11. A red-eye to the ATL, JFK EWR or anywhere on the east coast would work better due to the curfew.

LA to Houston is a short flight, 2 hours or whatever. Can RJs do proper trans con? How about ONT-ORD?

Cedarjet,

LAX-IAH is about 3:10 on a normal day on a 737-800. The XRJ range is about 4:10 or so, as evidenced by the upcoming IAH-BFL Bakersfield, CA run which is blocked at 4:04.

And as for SNA-IAH redeye, it would get into IAH at 3:00am if it left right before curfew. CO already does SNA-EWR (CO1686) redeyes and that flight routinely gets in at 04:45am.

SAN has a departure curfew as well. Everything must clear the runway by 11:30pm or be fined. This makes red-eyes to the Central time zone impractical. The only one is to Chicago and they arrive ORD around 4:30am, 1 hour prior to most arrivals from the west. Everything else is to the Eastern time zone.

To fly to IAH, the SAN red-eye would have to stop somewhere that does not have a curfew. TWA sometimes flew SAN-ONT-STL as a red-eye.
