ERJ145 "lr"

Fri Aug 27, 2004 11:41 am

What does the LR mean in the erj145LR? if it's long range, than do the airlines that have that product really use those lr ones on longer routes?

I know CO flies 145LRs to ORD, not sure from where, but I'd imagine they use them for longer distances. They have plenty of standard 145's for everything else.  Big grin

And yes, it stands for long range.

The ERJ-145XR is the Extended Range version and that is the plane that is used on the long distance RJ flights such as EWR-OKC or IAH- Bakersfield and then of course all the other Express flights where scheduled. This was also CO/COEX's first plane with winglets. The ERJ-145LR I believe stands for Long Range. The 145LR that you see in ORD comes from CLE more than likely as I believe the RJ's you would see that come from IAH would be the XR's although I could be mistaken. The 145LR is pretty much used system wide except for the long haul RJ routes.
I would like to know however what the difference between the 145 and the 145LR is.

The standard EMB145 (EP/MP models) carries 9200 lbs of fuel, whereas the LR version carries 11,484 lbs of fuel. I am not quite sure about the XR version, since we do not fly the aircraft, but the Legacy has a fuel capacity of 17,761 lbs.

I recently flown the COEX ERJX from ONT-IAH, way too long of a flight for any RJ.

When I flew CO to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico from Houston the aircraft we used was the EMB145XR. And by the way its avery comfy aircraft, with lots of legroom.

The only real differance.....

The EMB-145ER has a dry center wing box. (fuel only in wings)
The EMB-145LR has a wet center wing box. (fuel in wings and center body)
The EMB-145XR has a wet center body and an added fuel tank built into the aft wing to body fairing.

If it had winglets it's a ERJ-145XR.

Well, I know they fly both non-winglet and winglet, and what I said was an LR I actually meant as an XR (I forgot about that one lol). I saw a CO 145 with winglets take off while I was sitting in the Ted Shed (a.k.a. the banana, or that little extension on T1, Concourse B housing gates B19, B20, B21, B22).
