I would say that NWA's MHT (Manchester, NH) to MSP (Minneapolis) has to be the longest one at least I have ever heard of. (I assume this must be pushing the limits of the CRJ's range already (?))
(Must say that I would never want to be in a CRJ for 3+ hour flight! I flew aboard my first CRJ recently in a short hop from Cincinnatti to Columbus and found the "ribs" on the interior cabin wall to intrude very uncomfortably into the window seat - quite a dumb design it seems)
Anyone know of any CRJ flights in the US that are longer?

What airport is XNA?
Also, at least on American Eagle you are on an Embraer where you don't have those awful "ribs" on the interior wall of the ac pinning you against your neighbor, plus on the Embraer's you can always try to get on the "A side" where there is only one seat, with no neighbors.
In the NWA MHT to MSP flight you are on a Canadair where there is only the 2-2 configuration and no escape from the torture that flying those things can be.

I was flew on the longest flight with CRJ and that was out of MHT-ATL back April 2000. It is very good ride on the CRJ for me. I was make connecting with ATL flight and was flew to MCO on the new B777 aircraft.

I think these airlines deserve to go under for sticking CRJs that far. Ok, thats a little harsh but the flying public has no ideas what a CRJ is when they book their flight.
Some of MSP destinations on a CRJ (If I can remember, work the ARJs)
MSP-Jacksonville at one time
I know MSP-SAV is starting up in a bit.
Also for the people following NWA's schedule changes, it was discussed earlier what some of the routes were going to be, and new ones for the Avro's, There will be a MSP-YXE on one, dowgraded from a DC-9.
