Questions Regarding AF Regional ERJ135s

Sat Dec 03, 2011 6:50 pm

I have a question for the AF experts out there...

How many Embraer 135 does AF (actually, Regional) operate now? I
think they are F-GOHB to F-GOHF. Where are they deployed?

Questions Regarding AF Regional ERJ135s

Sat Dec 03, 2011 7:35 pm

On Nov 14 I flew F-GRGR on flight AF-5485 AMS-SXB and the same plane on the return leg AF-5485 on the 16th.
AF (Regional) flies this route 3 times/day during the week and interchange EMB 135/145.

At SXB your can find a nice mix of Regional ERJ's and Brit-Air CRJ regional jets...

Questions Regarding AF Regional ERJ135s

Sat Dec 03, 2011 7:47 pm

Not sure about it but I think Regional is still operating 4 ER3s. One of them is indeed based at Strasbourg for this schedule ( weekdays ) :

SXB - LIL - SXB - AMS - CFE - AMS - SXB - LIL - SXB

Moreover I have seen F-GOHD with the 'new' AIRFRANCE tittles at SXB three weeks ago.

Yesterday, I was on F-GOHD from LYS to BLQ. But there weren't any other 135 at
LYS... Here's the reason for my question.

I flew one of AF E135 between AMS and SXB on 09/09.
Can't remember the reg but it was all white with no logo. Anyone know the reg?
I believe reading somewhere that AF E135 were being phased out.

I guess it was F-GOHD. It has been all white during several weeks before being repainted with the last scheme.

The four last remaining are :

F-GRGP
F-GRGQ
F-GRGR
F-GOHD

Ah!  Wow!

So GOHB, GOHC, GOHE and GOHF have already left the
fleet! Too bad.

I can't believe airlines bought the E135.... They should all be retired and become private jets!

Why? Embarking and disembarking takes 2 minutes, independently
on where you're seated! I simply love them!

Any idea of when the 4 remaining ones will be phased out?
I'm actualy a bit surprised that they repainted one of them.
