I am supposed to be travelling to Dayton next May for a wedding and I am trying to decide which way to go. I am pretty well decided on AA via ORD (I haven't been there in years and I want to see it for myself how congested it is! Of course, the fact that I can fly on a 777 is a contributory factor). However, the AAL site is down or EXTREMELY slow at the moment, so I wonder if anyone could help me on the ORD-DAY flights; I understand these are operated by Eage and I'm wondering what types are operated; I'd love to fly in the Embraer 135 or 140 (preferably both!)

Another option would be to fly Delta to CVG. At CVG you could either fly up on Comair, or rent a car from CVG. It takes around an hour, by car, to get to Dayton. That would actually probably be faster than flying through ORD. There are only 3 or 4 international flights per day into CVG, so the customs facility is pretty quick.

You could also take US Airways via PIT or PHL and take their 767 or brand new A-330 to the US and a 737, F100, or Turboprop to Dayton. You also might be able to take United via Washington DC if you really want a B777.

Do you have a preference going via Heathrow or Gatwick or does it not matter. If you don't mind going to Gatwick Delta via Cincinatti sounds like an easy way to go. Rent a car in Cincinatti and drive the 50 miles to Dayton and then use the rental car there. Or take a shuttle into Dayton.
Incase that doesn't sound appealing American has flights (All on ERJ-145) from ORD-Dayton:
AA 777 LHR-ORD:
This are probably all subject to change since these are today's schedules, but I hope this is useful. There are also 2 767 flights to Chicago but it didn't seem like you were very interested in them...

Why would you rent a car when Comair has quite a few flights running between CVG & DAY that Delta would put you on if you booked to DAY and it probably wouldn't cost much, if any more. I bet that would be cheaper than a rent a car and easier too. But I admit it is a very easy drive up I75 that is less than a hour, but I'd take the 18 min flight on a nice CRJ. Just a thought.
