When Did US Start Flying 175's In AVP

Sat Feb 04, 2012 2:28 am

Just saw my trip itinerary for next week and ill be taking a 175 from CLT to AVP. I know this is the biggest plane that US has flown in there in years. Usually an CRJ 200 or a 700 and the a slew of dash 8's to Philly. I am excited to take this flight. The E 175 is such a fun plane to fly on. When did they start doing this and does anyone know if any other airlines are looking to bring larger planes to AVP? If I recall AVP will be building a new tower and maybe some runway work soon. Thanks.

Interesting, I'm surprised I didn't catch this myself as I usually check flights into AVP but I have been slacking lately. According to Flightaware.com RPA3188 started CLT-AVP, Jan 10, 2012.

I really like the E170 and try to get on it whenever US sends it to DAB
If it ain't Boeing, I'M NOT GOING!!!!!

It is going to be nice to fly these beautiful planes with the new F product in them. Finally a F product for airports that never had that before. I wonder how hard it is going to be to score a first class seat. Probably not a big market but still only 8 seats.
