Re: Phoenix: American (E145, A321 & A321neo)

I find the 145 I have flown to Buffalo usually cruise around 20,000 for the trip. Most I saw was 24000.

PHL 17/35 Landing

On a recent flight from BUF to PHL in EMB 145 we landed on 17/35, is that common for commuter landings?
I have never landed or took off from that runway. AA 4957 was the flight. It is a 6500 foot runway.

Thanks

Re: PHL last night -Frustrating

Traffic management always makes Philly a challenging airport in or out.

Surprised Porter has not added PHL, I bet it would generate business.

Republic E175 - moving passengers for weight and balance?

We flew American this weekend from BUF to PHL and the flight attendant had to move people to balance the aircraft? Surprised this is done on such a large aircraft. Is this common?
