ERJ-145 Or 145XR On CO EX?

Thu Oct 23, 2003 9:19 am

Is there a way to tell if a CO EX flight will be the XR or not prior to arriving at the gate and finding out in person?

If I am not mistaken in the CO timetable if you do a flight search the designators are something like this: 135/SRJ = ERJ135, 145/ERJ = ERJ145, ERX = ERJ145XR

However, I would assume there are instances on shorter hops where any of them can be substituted for one another...

I believe the interiors look the same...the safety cards are probably the same also. I had the pleasure of taking the 135 and 145 this summer DTW-CLE-LGA and also the CLE-DTW segment on the return and it had the same safety information cards on each aircraft... It was my first time on a regional jet and I really enjoyed it; its a little heavier on the turbulence (i guess i would assume not as heavy as a prop though; although I haven't ever been on a turboprop either).... I'll be taking my first ride on a CRJ in about a month and I'm looking forward to that also...
Go Blue!!

The ERJ's are good little "Hot Rods" definitely beats the old turboprop.
Just be sure and book and "A" seat, otherwise you get the feeling of being in a "hobit hole". Turbulence is more considerably more noticeable than mainline S80, A320, B737.
And of course on short flights,"the captain expects turbulence, keep your seat belt fastened and there will be no cabin service"

Luv767s, if you're scheduled for an ERJ 145, there's always a chance it could end up being an XRJ. I've seen them go CLE-DTW, usually as an equipment substitition for a regular old 145. All depends on the routing for a given day.

I've seen them go CLE-DTW...

When the the ERJ145 replace the ERJ135 on the CLE/DTW run? There use to be four daily flights tagged as "SRJ," now there's three "ERJ."

Usually not, IP. It's usually a 50 seater for a 50 seater. Although it does happen on occaison.

Alpha 1 -- that's not what I meant  Smile. I mean CO use to fly (as scheduled service) four daily "SRJ" between DTW/CLE ... I was just wondering when they switched to the 50-seaters.

Ah, Ok. Sorry. Just normal flutuations in the fleet. Can't tell you when it happened. In fact, I'm pretty sure there's almost alwasy been at least one ERJ CLE-DTW, far as I know.

Hell, I don't pay THAT much attention. I just wrok them.  Laugh out loud

At the moment, the aircraft scheduled is aircraft 998. This is not an XR, this is the standard ERJ-145.

Does anybody know what COEX uses on the TUS-IAH route. I know its a 145 but don't know about XR or not. I'm flying next Thursday from TUS-IAH-EWR. Thanks for your help!

COEWRNJ, I'm pretty sure it's an XRJ. That's about a 3 hour flight, correct me if I'm wrong. That's within the rnger of a standard ERJ, as we do fly those CLE-DFW, but I think it's an XRJ.

Alpha 1 thanks for the info. What type of range does the XRJ have? Same question for the regular 145.

Off the top of my head, the ERJ has a range of about 1250 nautical miles, and the XRJ about 1500.
