US Airways E-190

Thu May 21, 2009 8:32 pm

Hello everyone, I'm soon traveling to South Carolina and I will most likely be traveling on a E-190. Now I have just one quick question, are there any seats to avoid such as misaligned windows, etc...? I don't trust seatguru anymore since last time I trusted them on a NWA E-175 I ended up getting a misaligned window when the website said there was none.

I fly the US E190 a lot and the windows aren't misaligned. If you read some of my TRs, you'll see how easy I get shots from them lol.

Flew on one a few months ago, the view was ok (I had the aisle seat + it was dark so I couldnt see much) but I think you should be fine. It was my first flight on one and I really enjoyed it.
Enjoy your flight.

Seatguru relies on travelers submitting reports about aircraft. If you haven't already, you might want to submit a comment to them about which row has the misaligned window, if you haven't already (I notice Seatguru shows row 12 has a misaligned window on the NWA E175).

The only thing I noticed about the E190 the one time I flew it on B6 was that behind the wing, the strobe on the wing also faces the cabin. This can make it awful to look out the window at night or in low light conditions. I would suggest sitting forward of the wing in those situations (if possible).

Hmm....I flown US930 twice from CLT-ORF on a 190, both at night, and I've never noticed that. I'll look for it on my CLT-BOS and BOS-CLT.

Please do! I am curious to see if it was perhaps just a special circumstance with the a/c I was on.

I have noticed it on the 175 when I was on it GSO-CLT. Since it was a 23 minute flight at night, and only above FL10 for a short while, that strobe and watching the amazingly fast travel above I-85 were my entertainment.
