If so how is the performance, do you get pushed back in your seat on takeoff? If you fly these, are the a dream to handle? My brother and I are flying from LAX-ORD on an AA MD82 and then from ORD-DSM on a EMB-145. The return is an EMB-145 from DSM-ORD and back to LA on a 767-200. Please give me any stories or information on this incredible new aircraft! -Ryan

it is like flying on a big jet. The pitch is as big as a big jet, it has a lav., flight attendant. Everything a big jet has.

I have talked to people disembarking from a USAirways ERJ-145 from ATL-LGA, and the consensus was that the plane was comfortable and better than expected, however, it was probably not ideal for a flight that length. Enjoy the flight and tell us about it!

I flew on it once with CEX. It was rather comfortable. It has all the things a big jet would. Flight attendant, lavatory, etc. The one bad thing is the height of the aircraft. I am 5'11" and I hit my head numerous times standing up on the aircraft, especially under the overhead bins. The seating arrangement of 1-2 is comfortable especially if you sit by yourself. The engines are beautiful. They aren't overpowering but have the kick to get you going fast. Hope this helps and tell us about your flight when you get back. G'day.

Hello, I flew both on short inland flights and remember very well the 145. Pretty look, nice cabin (he was brand new). I get jumpseated for descent and landing so acording to the crew, a nice jet to handle. Fast was the word coming back every sentence and speed records were broken every week by different pilots of the compagny which was Air Littoral.
Taking off was very smooth and during cruisin, cabin was very quiet.
A really good one and since I took it, I prefer it before the CRJ.
Bye.

I flew on a CO Express ERJ-145 from EWR to BHM. As I remember the performance was good, flight was a bit rough in a couple of spots, as the weather threw us around a bit, but I guess that's to be expected in a plane that's as small as the ERJ-145.

I agree with Futurepilot2b, the only complaint I had also was the headroom - and I'm only 5'7"! I sat on the left side of the aircraft, in a seat to myself. There are no overhead bins on that side; however, the fuselage curves sharply right above head level, so if you're tall it's probably a little bit uncomfortable.

All in all it was a good experience - I'd much rather fly in a ERJ-135/145 than a turboprop any day!

I have flown on a Portugalia EMB-145 on a short Lissabon-Faro trip. It was a nice powerful aircraft. The cabin in first gave a bit cramped claustrofobic feeling; 15 rows 3-abreast made it feel like entering a tube. For me (1.92 meter, I guess that's about 6 feet 2) I really had to crowl to my seat, but as soon as I sat down in the single windowseat, it was great. Nice big windows (compared with too few and too small windows in the CRJ). The climb-rate was impressive and it felt comfortable. The noise level was quite low. And there is ability for serving meals so I wouldn't mind a 2,5 hour sector in it.


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I LOVE THE EMB145..COOLEST PLANE I'VE EVER BEEN ON..I THOUGHT THAT SAME THING ABOUT THE CANADAIR UNTIL I GOT ON THE EMB145..THE LAST 4 ROWS, HOWEVER CAN BE NOISY WHEN ON THE GROUND, DUE TO LOUD APU..BUT FLIGHT IS AWESOME..CLIMBED OUT THRU MID-SUMMER P.M. BUILD UP LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS AND EVEN HAD A TASTY DINNER ON CO EXPRESS..ONCE SEATED, PERSONAL SPACE IS MORE THAN AMPLE AND WINDOWS ARE PERFECTLY SPACED AND SIZED(UNLIKE THE POOR CANADAIR)..ENJOY
