I loved the 170 overall though  Smile

Some of the flights are, but some use the BGates down past Ted, and Some use the first few C gates. When I was in ORD in Early Aug. The E170s were leaving out of C along with CRJ 700s. It appeared that Terminal F was basically AWAC Operations.

Most, if not all, of the E170s leave from T1 in the locations Flypdx mentioned.

They're VERY nice inside but are a pain in the ass to load. Much more comfortable than a CRJ/CRJ-700.

United's 170s are configured with their "explus" service, meaning there is a first, econ plus, and economy cabin in each plane.

Very nice.

I flew United Express ERJ 170 from CMH to ORD two weeks back. Very nice plane. Flew in First, but the economy seats looked pretty nice and spacious too. This plane doesn't feel like an RJ.

IMO, they are more comfortable than the 733's and just as comfortable if not more than the A32X's.

Very, very nice plane on the inside, with very comfortable seats.

It is exponentially better than the CRJ.

I hate to even say this but I liked the E170s myself. I sat in FC on one leg and was very comfortable. I got a basket choice full of goodies. I hate to say it because as a mainline FA, it is taking flying away from my job.

A couple of weeks back I few ORD-MSY both ways on an E170. They are very nice, very quite and smooth. I flew FC on the way down and coach on the way back. I really like the coach E+ product on these planes. I don't think I will waste the certificates to upgrades on this plane again. It's not worth it. The Econ plus is just too nice.

They are great comfortable planes as everyone else says. Quick on and off too, which is nice. Smaller crowds.

Check out some trip reports. Here are two with E170 rides on UA that I wrote:

Hello...finally got to fly on the jet and ithought it was great! I was able to sit in Econ. plus  Smile The plane definitely had the "new plane" smell and the seats were very comfortable. One thing i did notice was that those things seem pretty powerful. When we turned onto the runway at IND, the pilot started the takeoff roll and before you knew it, we were in the air...it did not seem like we were on a takeoff roll (or whatever you want to call it  Big grin for very long...

I flew ORD-YUL and then YUL-IAD over a week ago... really enjoyed both flights. Very nice comfortable seats... didn't feel like an RJ at all. A guy seated a few rows behind commented on how nice and new this 737 was.

I have probably flown UAX E170's over 50 times. They are OK. You still know you are in a small plane. They are a bit noisy. Economy plus is really nothing special. The legroom is not as noticeable as E+ on a mainline jet. The seats are comfortable. I still rather fly mainline. The plane looks nice, but it is really just like other RJ's. To me, you might as well be on a CRJ or E145.

All I know, seeing as I have only had the opportunity to watch that pretty bird from afar, is that she is well proportioned. Unlike some RJs with over large or over small engines, too big a tail, too small a nose, too long a fuselage, she has all of the right dimensions. Not top heavy and sure looks sleek when airborne. They also dressed her to the nines in the new UA color scheme. I might even go as far as to use the word sexy.

Maybe I am just another aviation nut in a bushel of us, but I think these a/c look really good.

For the last freakin' time... It's not an RJ. Just because someone calls it an RJ doesn't make it one. I'm sure they'd have some great pay negotiations if mainline carriers didn't call them RJ's.

I would say that if RJs are like the kids of the plane industry, and widebodies and 757s are like the adults, this would make the E170 and the 737 and the A320 series aircraft the teenagers. They come in all shapes and sizes, growing and shrinking at a tremendous rate.

There should be a third column for young adult aircraft. We could coo at them and say things like "Its OK little guy, you be a big plane some day..."

Heh... A plane is a plane is a plane. If it has jets on it, it is a jet. The rest is just politics. They are all beautiful to me.
