I finally booked my ORD - MCO trip for July the other day. Fares kept fluctuating between DL and US. I booked US Airways and I'm going to be on the ERJ175 from ORD - CLT first which I've never been on a regional jet before. I hear these are nice are they? Also, from CLT - MCO is a 757-200. I noticed that US Airways has blended winglets on their 757s. Do all of them have winglets? One more thing...... I got row 22A/B for seats. Is this good for the flap views?

Thanks,
Kevin

You should enjoy the ERJ-175. I have flown on them a few times and I personally like them. Not all of the 757-200 have the winglets, actually very few of them do as of right now!

The consensus has been that people like the E-Jets from a comfort point of view.

Only the ETOPS aircraft, which I believe are restricted to international and Hawaii ops. I could be wrong about that though.

Check out www.seatguru.com. Per the site, it depends on the configuration. On some aircraft you will be behind the wing, on others you will be just ahead of the trailing edge. Either way you should have a decent view of the flaps.

The E-Jets are very comfortable, not that much space of course but compared to the CRJs its much better.

You're right, not all of them, except the ones that are used for Europe and Hawaii. (not sure about Caribbean)

They pop up in Orlando and other airports around FL from time to time. Odds of getting one are fairly low, but its not unheard of.

The 75's with winglets are doing most of the trans atlantic routes as far as I know

Have fun

I wouldn't think that one would pop up on this route though. Assuming this is operated by an East crew (Given its CLT), most of the ETOPS 757s out east are in PHL because thats where all the Intl flying is out of. They would like to keep them in this market, so you might see one in MCO from PHL, but CLT is highly unlikely.

Try flying Jetblue from ORD to MCO with a stop at JFK. Even though it's not non-stop, what's better than having DirectTV and XM satelite radio and leather seats. JetBlue is a low fare carrier and I totally recommend flying with them.

That is, if the TV actually works. I was on a jetBlue flight from MCO-BOS last february and the TV and the XM radio were broken. Looking back, I wish I had chosen Southwest which was cheaper, but I paid more to try out jetBlue, which failed to satisfy me; they didn't even compensate me after I wrote them about the broken TV.

Well most of the time the TV's usually work. The only times they didn't work for me were MCO-EWR last March and NAS-JFK last week. I got compensated for it though; if you call JetBlue and give them your confirmation number they will give you a voucher.

Or better yet, stay on US and collect miles in an international airline. If you collect Miles with JetBlue you end up flying just where you've already gone and where it doesn't cost much to go anyway.

Once you get plenty of miles on US or any of the legacy carriers, you'll be off to Europe, Asia and many other fun places. The actual cost of a business class ticket that you get for your hard-flown miles is a much better reward than flying coach for free on JetBlue, Southwest or Frontier.

If you were flying about a month ago. Then you would have had a 90% chance of getting on an ETOPS bird. But we'll be in full swing at INTL when you fly so the chances are slim to none now.
