Longest CRJ-200 Flight In The United States?

With all the newer, more comfortable CRJ-700's and -900's buzzing around the country I was wondering if anyone knew the current longest nonstop CRJ2 flight in the country? When I had flown on a loaded CRJ2 from BUR to PHX (only about a 90 minute flight) I couldn't stand it, to me it made Greyhound sound very attractive.

Thanks,
Ryan

I know it's not the longest, but I flew LAX-SLC on a UAX CR2...and it felt like the longest CRJ flight! But having said that...I love takeoff in a CR2...weird feeling!

Sorry, just realized the BOS-MEM is actually 3hrs 25min westbound and 3hrs eastbound. Also, NW finally upgraded one of the BOS-MEM flights to a A319.

I've done DEN-BNA and BNA-DEN on a UX CRJ-200 which is just over 1000 miles. Thankfully I was in 1B so I could stretch my legs.

Fortunately, they now fly CRJ-700s with First and Economy Plus.  thumbsup

I'd say pinnacle has the longest CRJ2 flights looking at their route map. They have some flights from the rocky area to MSP or MEM and also they can also fly into El Paso from MSP! Anyways, flying a CRJ2 is not that bad as far as space, however those windows are a little annoying for spotters like me. Smile

Very true! I flew last night on a CR2 from ORD-ICT and it was pretty bad...not horrible, but pretty bad.

Too long.    My neck always hurts whenever I get off of those from having to lean way down to look out the window. Though takeoff's in a CRJ, especially for a short flight such as DAY-CVG or MCN-ATL is always exciting.

Why not? I find the CR7 and CR9 decent aircraft. I find the CR2 uncomfortable and cramped, especially for looking out the window, but the CR7's and CR9's are decent, and that's coming from someone who's 6'4". Heck, I think Delta Connection CR7's are more comfortable than some of the Delta mainline jets.
And my favorite part about flying on the CRJ's (besides being able to walk out on the tarmac): Deplaning takes so much less time, not only because there are fewer people, but also because those who feel the need to bring the kitchen sink in their "Carry-on" are forced to check it plane side and thus they aren't able to spend 15 minutes collecting all their crap.

Now by "Greyhound", do you mean the bus company or Southwest Airlines?   
*Disclaimer*
The above is known as a joke and is not meant to offend any Southwest employee or Southwest fan. FlyDeltaJets87 had his first Southwest experience over Thanksgiving and overall enjoyed the new experience.

I believe that in the current UA network this is as long as you go on a CRJ (1012 miles and under 3 hours both ways). DEN-YEG was the past CRJ champion, marginally longer at 1020 miles, but it's now CR7, and also goes outside of the USA. Therefore...

Unless there's a longer route, BOS-MEM is the current champion (1138 miles). Yay!

I've done DEN-BHM . . .3 hours east, 3 hours plus west, just shy at 1083 miles of the BOS-MEM record of 1138 miles.

Also CLT-IAH . . . 2.75 west.

At least on the DEN-BHM there was an F class on that UA Express CRJ7.

Absolutely more comfortable. I invite you aboard a CRJ7 flown by Skywest as United Express. Seat 1A is an excellent place to spend three hours . . . no way I could stretch out an come near to touching the bulkhead . . .  thumbsup

Pinnacle runs a CR2 from DSM-DCA, which clocks in at 897nm -- pretty far...


And this one isn't a CRJ, but Eagle runs an E135/145 daily between DSM and LGA, coming in at 1031 -- also pretty long.

MSP-ELP was on a CR7...the flight was discontinued last may  Sad IIRC, the block time for the flight was 4 hours 0 minutes...a little too long to be couped up in a CRJ, if you ask me. I always wondered why on NW MSP-RAP got a mainline A319, but they threw an RJ at ELP.

1149 miles.....and one of my regular flights. However, I fly up there on the CR9 and night and usually can only find space on the CR9 back in the morning.

So, it looks like DTW-AUS takes the award so far by a few miles over DSM-PHX. This doesn't include MSP-ELP though since they don't currently operate it (unless it has seasonal service still).

I may be wrong, but when I was a travel agent (it was about 2-3 yrs ago) I recall AC running a CRJ from yyz-iah (1280mi,1112nm)

and i just check a site and I know its not a CRJ but CO runs an ERJ series aircraft on that sector. So this could be the longest, but I know its not in the US but its close enough.  Smile

I found that the aisle seats are alot better to sit in if you want to look out the windows. Plus if your sitting next to a big/huge person its alot more comfy than getting squished against the window.
I flew on the E145 last week and was definitely impressed with it, all the airlines can retire the CRJ200...IMO
