How much overwater flying is required for a Mainland-Jamaica flight?

Does the CRJ-700 have the overwater equipment required for such a flight?

Above all, I'd hate to be trapped in a CRJ for such a long trip!

I hope this flight is out of ATL or MCO. If its out of CVG, I'm never flying DL to Montego Bay!

Yes, the flight will be from CVG, Saturday only, if granted.

Good God....that'd be one long flight, made worse by the fact that it's on a CRJ for that long! Can Delta make any money with this?

...and I complained about taking a JM MD-80 MBJ-ATL a few years ago.  Insane

Smcmmac the flight is out of CVG (with the CRJ), out of ATL DL flies the 738 and codeshares with JM who operates the route with a 320. RJ flights just keep on getting longer and longer.

Geezus... And I thought my CRJ flights from CVG to HSV and all the way back to MSN via CVG were long. I hope they make those seats more comfortable for the people going all the way there. I'm never going to MBJ via CVG!

Very nice to hear for more new international flight to MBJ and it is competition of ATL-MBJ already. What are you think about all of those CRJ-700 make to MBJ?

"How long of a flight is that?"

----------------------------------

1472 miles/ 1279 nm. I would say 3-1/2 to 3-3/4 hours gate to gate would be a good guess.

EWR-MBJ is 1342 nm (63 nm further) and is blocked 3 hours 59 minutes.



Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

I am surprised myself when I saw it on the website. I cannot believe that they've actually going to do CVG-MBJ. Much luck on that route.

I can't say that I never going to fly that route, but one never ever really knows.

Airlines are really testing the limits of the regional jets.....the question is do passengers mind? I think that a 4 hour flight on an RJ is a very long, but if the average passenger has no problem with it, then the airlines will continue to try flights like this, I guess that the average passenger would rather sit 4 hours in a small airliner on a nonstop flight than connect via a hub - especially large crowded hubs like ATL or MIA.

And some members here complain about a transcon on a 757 or transatlantic on CO with a 757! Which is better, 4 hours on a CRJ or 6 hours on a 757? Times are changing.

I'm a flight attendant for Delta's Regional jets at Comair. For the most part, all the passengers seem to be very happy even on long flights. There are not as many so I can be more personable with them, and they really enjoy it. We usually get to do 2 beverage services. BTW we don't have life rafts on board (somebody asked that question on here way above) I hear that on our 70 seater we are soon to get the Entertainment Thing (Delta Horizon) I think that would be nice. Also have heard we will be serving a bit more than just snacks on longer flights. People really don't seem to mind our regionals. I've heard that some people like our service better because it's more personalized. and passengers love how we can board to the last second on our smaller jets.

CincybaseFA,

Do you at least have buy-on-board food available for those flights? I wouldn't think twice about hopping a CRJ for that flight, but would appreciate something to nibble!



Finally made it to an airline mecca!

I am not sure about buy-on-boards with their flight to MBJ. You can probably will find out about them.
