I did IAH-MEX on their E-190 in March of 2014. Really comfortable. I fell in love with the aircraft then

I flew the up leg (MEX-SAT on the 190, really confortable but the 135 is HELL.

And to think I almost booked this segment just to log an E175...it was the A319 and that was unbearable, I can't imagine an E175.

E75s are almost the same as the A319 from a customer experience perspective. It's the CR2 and CR7 type of plane that can be hell if the plane is fully loaded and the route is long enough.

Quoting thegoldenargosy (Reply 58):
3 hrs on a 50 seater is a bit much. I've seen the bathroom line up to exit row before a ERJ-135.

Low cost hospital wards are safer, quieter, more comfortable and have better service than the UA 764. 4 bathrooms for 203 people in coach on a 10 hour flight. Fun when one or two of them go tech. Both aisles crammed with people heading up from Y and down from Y+ and then service carts are making their way up and down for beverages and meals.

Quoting KaiTak747 (Reply 55):
In Europe they are so rare, last year I managed to fly the Eastern Airways ERJ-135 from SOU-LBA, it was such a treat! The 3 across config is excellent, having a window and aisle seat all to yourself. I remember people on the flight baffled by how small the plane is, I guess everyone in Europe is so used to the 737/A320!

There's a lot less express type flying to Europe. More likely to offer trains or buses, no one is offering TXL-HAM and same basic reaction to express equipment as the Dash 8 from TXL-KGD or VIE-KSE, wow it has propellers  
Quoting RJ321 (Reply 86):
I would say FlyDubai and their flights to Bratislava and other Eastern European cities from Dubai with 737s. The flights can easily exceed 6 hr. Also, Ethiopian fly their 737s from ADD to TLV and BEY non stop.

Then you can add CM 737s on routes like SFO-PTY or PTY-MVD / EZE at 7.25 - 7.5 hours

Actually, the 135/140/145 - especially if you get the single seat side - aren't bad rides. The CR2 would be mental.

UA used to do CR7s between SAT-SFO, about 1,400 nm direct (usually around 1,500 nm planned). It's currently mainline with B739 and A320s though.

Quoting jrfspa320 (Reply 109):

Before National Jet TAA and Ansett WA used to have alternate services, TAA with the 727, and Ansett WA with the Bae146. The fuel stop in Learmonth I seem to recall only happened when the route was flown counter clockwise as Christmas Island required to have a non-remote island alternate (the runway is around 1000 ft above sea level in the middle of the ocean, almost always with low cloud due to orgraphic lifting) which usually was Jakarta. Cocos Island is flat, you can come down real low without hitting anything. Flown clockwise I seem to recall the flight was direct from Perth, however during cyclone season they did sometimes stop at Learmonth on the way to uplift more fuel, and if Perth had fog or cold fronts forecast a stop was also made on the return leg.

They were very long overwater legs for a RJ.

I am leaving it to the aircraft manufacturer where they put RJ in the full name of the aircraft type and where it stands for regional jet (which I realize is a subjective term but again I leave that to the ac manufacturer).

My longest, by distance, was ORF-IAH on an ERJ-145XR, and was 1201mi.

My longest, by time, was GSP-IAH on an ERJ-145 (non XR, iirc). Not super far, but strong headwinds meant it took over 4 hours. We had some turbulence along the way, but the pilot said climbing above it would burn too much fuel. He also said we may have to divert to MOB for fuel, but we made it to IAH with 15 minutes of fuel left before reserves.

They haven't and they aren't Regional Jets... Regional AIRCRAFT sure, but not Regional JETS.

My list...

These are the definate RJs:

CRJ-100/-200
ERJ-135/140/145
DO328JET
YaK-40

These are the grey area RJs:
CRJ-700/900/1000
EMB170/175/190/195
BAe146/Avro RJ
Fokker F.28/F70/F100
SSJ100
YaK42

Problem with the "grey area" ones is they can get into the range of the 737-500/600, 717, A318/319... which we don't consider RJs at all. Not to mention the DC-9-10, BAC 1-11, 737-100/200, even 727-100... I mean the line gets really blurry.

I tend to lump all the CRJs in the RJ category since they are just stretched CRJ100 frames in basic terms, but the rest I lump into the small jet category.

The following are TURBOPROPS, not Regional Jets (yes yes a turboprop is a jet driving a prop... not the point):
Dash 8 series (inc Q400)
ATR42/72
Fokker 50 (and 60, 27)
Saab 340 and 2000
Beech 1900 series (plus 99, 1300, king air, etc)
EMB-120
and so on...

and these, are not jets, period!
Cessna 402/404
Islander/Trislander
etc

When an aircraft maker names a jet CRJ-1000 and ERJ-190 and the RJ in that name stands for Regional Jet, I don't consider that a gray area considering they made and named the jet. Besides, no two regions are the exact same size and there will likely never be a consensus on what range constitutes a regional jet when you are borrowing and trying to interpret the name from the aircraft maker.

How would you classify the C-series then ? CS100 doesn't have "RJ" anywhere in its name, but it very much competes in the E90/E95 space.

Quoting jetblue1965 (Reply 123):

I am just making the point I am not going to second guess the aircraft manufacturer and that I did not create the term regional jet or RJ. I think what happened is the name RJ stuck early on, so they decided to continue using it for marketing reasons. There was probably also politics at play because obviously the legacy airlines love to outsource as much flying as possible and where it makes since to lower paid affiliate pilots, and over the years we have seen legacy pilot unions budge on the size restriction of jets to be flown by affiliates (not to imply they did not gain in other areas). In that regard and from the airline's perspective, it couldn't have hurt to have those 50+ seaters named and referred to as Regional Jets.

Not everyone will agree on what that name means but here are some suggestions others might use to define these types of jets:

First I think we could all agree a "regional jet" must be powered by a "jet" engine. To a simpleton like me, that means no external, unenclosed propeller blades.

Any jet under 100 seats or 100 seats and under
Any jet under X seats
Any jet under X seats in all Y configuration
Any jet with range below 2000 miles
Any jet with range below 1750 miles
Any jet with range below X miles
Any jet with no greater than 2x2 seating in Economy (fortunately the Concorde was not considered Y class)
Any jet flown in the US (not trying to be US centric just less familiar with airline affiliate relationships in other countries) by an affiliate carrier. Using this criteria, do even AA, UA, and DL agree?

I am sure people can come up with more definitions too. I also wouldn't be surprised if the CEOs of Embraer, Bombardier, AA, UA, DL, LH have not reached a consensus on what defines a Regional Jet.

Quoting Airontario (Reply 129):
AC/QK flight IAH-YYC on the CRJ705(900) which is 1,750 sm, and can be anywhere from 3:45 to 4:10.

Already mentioned twice (Reply #24 and Reply #64).

Apparently quite a few of us have taken that flight -- maybe because it has meal service.

Quoting RWA380 (Reply 40):
I think many here use nautical mileage when talking miles, PDX-STL is 1484 nm as a reference.

It doesn't really matter so long as you use the same units for direct comparison. At any rate, AS has not announced any E75 routes longer than PDX-STL, so not sure to what route you are referring. Do you know something we don't?

You're wrong. SEA-OKC is 1,519 nautical miles on an E75.

SEA-OKC is 1,320 nautical miles. 1,519 is statute miles.

Not even close.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

AC has many much longer E190 nonstop routes, some over 50% longer.

Some of AC's longest AC E190 nonstops:

YYZ-PDX 1,822 nm (seasonal)
YYZ-SEA 1,791 nm
YYC-EWR 1,759 nm
YYC-YUL 1,628 nm
YEG-YUL 1,607 nm
YYC-YOW 1,559 nm

I was pretty certain it wasn't. It was the third time I asked what the longest E190 route was and no one answered, so I knew by tossing one out, I would finally get some input

1747 miles on Jazz for AC EXPRESS YYC-IAH CRJ705

I have done this one twice (after UA cancelled my flights) and it was horrible. By the time you fly over Dallas you are about ready to pull your hair out
When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Why did you consider it worse than any other narrowbody, especially with the 34-inch seat pitch (more than any AC mainline aircraft) and the same seatback entertainment system as the AC mainline fleet? And no risk of a middle seat.

OTOH, there's a United Club directly across from the AC gate in IAH Concourse A.
I concede that in the 705, with the A and F seats you always have to duck a bit on standing up to avoid a head-bang.

Btw, pmCO's 735s to YYC and YEG were more cramped in the back than the 705, as I recall.
