Hi everyone

I just had the pleasure of flying on my first ERJ-135... I've been on the 140 and the 145, but now I have added the 135 to my list. It's my favorite of the three!! I flew on the plane almost by accident... I made it to my gate in Pittsburgh, PA, scheduled on a later ERJ-145 flight, but was able to make an earlier flight 4 minutes before they closed the gate... talk about lucky.

Anyway, I didn't have time to catch the registration of the airplane, so if anyone at CO knows what it was, I'd appreciate it.

Sunday November 13th, 2005
Continental Express 3127
Pittsburgh - Newark
ERJ-135

I know about BTA, but don't really want to wait a month!

Thanks!

The fact that CO has 135's and 145's on that route so close back-to-back proves what I've been saying all along. Cut a frequency or two of RJ's a day, and throw a 735 at it. There's no need for up to 12x RJ's on PIT-EWR (US and CO combined).

CO did have 735s and 73Gs on the PIT route... took them off, though. Call me selfish, I'd rather have the ERJs! USAirways also had 733s, 734s and E170s on the route. In the three years I've been flying PIT-EWR regularly, I've flown on:

CO 733s
CO 735s
CO 738s
CO ER4s
CO ER3s
US ERJs
US CRJs
US E170s
US 733s
US 734s

PIT has gotten the mix, and right now, is all ERJ/CRJ. I think things will change, though, as they seem to do quite regularly on this route. I wish US would bring back the E170, it's a sweet ride, and it's not like US doesn't have enough E170s to do it!

I like the smaller size to be honest. A lot of people hate smaller planes, but I prefer them. I love the entire ERJ/EMB series of jets. The E135 is a rocket, like the 140 and 145, but the smaller it is, the better I like it!

I was in 3B (switched to 3C though). I expected it to be a 145, but didn't have time to look from the airport. The first thing that caught me off guard was that Row 2 was not across from the galley. The safety card just said ERJ so I decided to take a walk back to the bathroom... the Emergency Exit row was at Row 9 and the plane ended at Row 14, not Row 19.

It was definately without a doubt a 135!

By the way, the automated safety announcement also said 135...

Rocket like performance.  Smile Was in one on the "short" (5700ish ft) runway at ABE once due to a 15kt crosswind. We were off the ground in about 3000 feet, and then the pilot had to pull back on the throttles a bit to probably keep from blasting through 250kt.

I love the ERJ's as a whole, the A seats, and the sleek lines on the outside, and think the 145XR's winglets are about as close to being "sexy" that a plane can get. Continental's ExpressJet ERJ's and their all-Boeing mainline fleet are the reasons I fly them out of ABE despite usually being a bit more money and go to EWR despite PHL being slightly more convenient.

I agree with ya there, no doubt, as the ERJ is my favorite plane, but I just hate seeing airlines running tons and tons of frequency to the extent that the planes are basically following each other through the sky, when dumping 2 RJ's for one mainline wouldn't affect the schedules too much for fliers but yet be more efficient fuel/crew and most importantly at EWR airspace wise. Let's face it, flying to EWR, the "schedule" is just a suggestion to begin with. And that extra ERJ-135 they've got in the process... can go to PIT-CLE. If little SBN can rate RJ's from CLE now so can PIT, build the connection traffic, the heck with NW @ DTW.
