I'm wondering if anyone out there is in the "know" about the status of MQ's E-145 structural modification to increase the max landing weight (and alleviate the dreaded weight restrictions on these flights)? I know N648 was the first to be completed in ABI several weeks ago (an now is ironically in ROW for repainting). I haven't seen anymore go in for the modification lately?....is there a problem?

I had a commuting FO today I had to deny due to a weight restriction. It's not easy explaining we have empty seats, but are unable to accommodate him to get to work.

Thanks in advance.

There is nothing physically done to the aircraft. It's just an update to the AFM and the airlines OPS Manual. All of Eagle's ERJ are E145LR's which have the highest landing weights. The only MOD I know of even remotely close allows you to put LR brakes and wheels on ER aircraft....The only other MOD I know about allows you to change the MP and EP to LR and ER and that is just changing the data plate and updating the AFM.

Eagle has always had the strictest weight restriction on their planes even thought they are exactly the same as everyone else. They will take more fuel, less bags and less passengers on the same route as other airlines flying the same aircraft.

Sounds like how Mesaba operates the Saabs.
