Indianapolis: American CRJ-700, E175 & A319

Sun Oct 17, 2021 3:59 am

I was taking a quick trip for one night to Indianapolis, for an interview. A few days before I was leaving, I received an email with my flight information. I originally was supposed to be flying SYR-ORD on United, and ORD-IND on American. It was then switched to SYR-ORD-IND all on United. The night before I checked my SYR-ORD flight, and to my surprise saw that it was cancelled due to a crew issue. The flight was supposed to be on N547GJ. This is the same plane I flew back in March from SYR-ORD. That flight was delayed, and I had to switch to another flight too. The next morning, I called and was able to get switched to a different flight. The new flight would be on American.

Image

I got to the airport a little over an hour before departure. There were two people working behind the counter. One of them I knew, they used to work for a different airline. I’ve known her for a long time, from flying a lot. I was surprised to see her at the airline. The other person seemed to be helping a couple who had missed their flight or something. There were about 10 people ahead of me on line. A few people were on my flight to Philly. They were saying the line had not moved in 15 minutes. After waiting for another 10-15 minutes, it was finally my turn. I was quickly able to check my bag with the person I knew. She said she had recently switched airlines, and it was only her second day working there. I was able to get through security pretty quick, and then headed right to the gate. By the time I got there, boarding was just getting started.

Boarding

Everyone boarded, and we were ready to go by about 3:40pm. The door was closed at 3:45pm, 15 minutes early. We were pushing back two minutes later. The second engine was started, as we were taxiing out to runway 10

Image

Image

There was an overcast layer at 500ft, so it was right into the clouds

Image

We initially climbed up to 15,000ft. After a few minutes it got bumpy, and we descended down to 12,000ft. Drinks were on request only, and it was a pretty quick flight

Just like on the first flight, boarding was done pretty early. The door was closed 15 minutes early, at 6:30pm. Two minutes later, we were pushing

13A, next to N418YX that departed right before we did to Nashville

Image

Taxiing to runway 27L

Image

“Brickyard 4548 fly heading 265, runway 27L cleared for takeoff”

Image

We checked in with departure and were cleared to PENSY and up to 10,000ft, before being handed off to NY center

Image

Image

Image

On this flight we started out at 32,000ft, before climbing up to 34,000ft. The flight attendants came through with drinks and snacks. It was a nice sunset. By the time the sky was dark, it was time to start descending

About 20 minutes before landing, we started down

It was a quick taxi to the gate, after landing

Image

N403YX spent the night at gate B16, before its early morning flight to CLT

Image

The interview was early the next morning. After it was done, it was back to the airport for my flight. The flight back would be on American as well, but instead of Philadelphia it would be Charlotte.

A pretty similar view as the night before

Image

We continued the pattern on this trip, and pushed back early. We taxied out to runway 23L, and took off. As we climbing out, a FedEx 757 passed overhead on the arrival. Once we were clear of them, we climbed up to flight level 270

This flight passed quickly. Before long, we were already on the way down

Image

Final 18R

Image

Touchdown

Image

On the way into the gate, we came to a stop for a few minutes. About 15 minutes after landing, we pulled into the gate

Image

N105HQ flew right back to Indianapolis

Image

I didn’t have that long, before my next flight was departing

As I walking to my next gate I saw N403YX arriving after a flight from Appleton, Wisconsin, the plane I had flown the night before

And we were 4 for 4, on early departures. Shortly before we pushed back, they changed the runways. They were now departing to the North. Once the engines were started, we taxied out to runway 36C

Taxiing by N789AN a 777-200 giving way to us, after arriving from London

“American 404, wind 100 @ 8 runway 36C cleared for takeoff”

Climbing out of CLT

Image

It took the flight attendants about 35 minutes to come out for the service. A few minutes later it got pretty bumpy, so they had to sit down. A few minutes later it smoothed out, and they came back through

Image

Cruising at 33,000ft

Image

Image

It was sunny for the entire flight until we got close to Syracuse. It was back into the clouds during the descent

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Final runway 10

Image

Image

Image

It was a smooth touchdown

Image

Pulling into the gate

N733UW spent the night in Syracuse, and flew back down to Charlotte early the next morning

Really nice pics! (Especially on the second flight) Also, in November 2020, I arrived at the same gate at CLT (C3) on a Republic-operated E175 with the E170 winglets, though it was from Key West (EYW) and the aircraft was N408YX. Also, you might already know this, but AA has several CRJ-700 configurations. The last American Eagle CRJ-700 I went on was N762SK, with a modern interior and Layout 4, in which Row 16 is the second-to-last row. I was in 15A on that flight (BTR-DFW, just over 12 weeks ago). Looks like your CRJ-700 had Layout 2.

On this flight i was in 16A, and it was the emergency exit row. Last year i flew on an American Eagle (SkyWest) CRJ-700. On that flight i was i think in 14A, and it was behind the wing.
