This is older plane but it's one of my favorite small RJ's because of the 1-2 setup. The single seats on the left side are comfortable for anyone under 6'2" or so. A standard rollaboard bag will need to be gate checked. On the whole this is more comfortable than a CRJ or a turboprop.
I flew from JFK-BWI and was crammed into seat 18a. I will tru to avoid the Embraer 140/145 at all cost
Was late getting to the plane - my connecting flight was late, my luggage was late coming out of the carousel - had to abandon it and run. The gate was closed but plane still connected, they let me on. My original seat of 8A was occupied by someone else - weird. I was able to sit in 13B and was better off - no one beside me so I was able to stretch out. Lots of leg room. No food service though - just cookies. They should have at least had sandwiches for sale. No internet service or any entertainment on this flight.
American Airlines approved PET CARRIERS DO NOT FIT under these seats! I just had to deplane my flight from SYR to PVD because my 19x13x9 American Airlines approved pet carrier didn't fit under ANY of the seats.
Best seat on plane. At least a 40 inch pitch. Perfect for a 67 guy like me.
Spacious seat. Since the flight was not full, airline offered to reallocate paasengers seats. I had the more room snd it was comfortable
All the "A" window seats have limited underseat storage. It is less wide than in other planes and an "underseater" rolling suitcase will not fit. "underseater" suitcases just fit in the overhead, wheels out. Underseaters may fit in the "D" aisle seats that are wider. Windows are extra wide offereing lovely views
Great flight on a refurbished American Eagle/Piedmont Airlines ERJ-145. Seat was very comfortable with all new padding and window is much larger than the CRJ. Found no complaints at all with this aircraft.
i flew on a very small 15min flight from Waco(ACT) to Dallas(DFW) on this plane. there is no window right beside you so you have to either lean forward to look out or lean backwards. this is for all the windows on the single seat. i flew on this same plane back in December I sat in seat 4A and once again had to lean forward for the 22min flight from Dallas to Waco. the legroom is okay for a 10 year old i was 10 when i flew on this flight and am only 4' 9" 110 pounds so i didnt have to wedge in. plane was kinda old (it's 15 years old but with the new livery) so they had the seats elevated and i nearly tripped. so on a scale of 1 to 10 i'd give it a 7
The Embraer ERJ-145 is a bit noisier and cooler than some of the larger jets but the seating is surprisingly comfortable. I always reserve a seat in row A so I can have my own space; it makes a longer flight easier for someone who's a bit claustrophobic.
Blower right under seat causes feet to get very cold. And i had tennis shoes and socks on
There is a piece of metal that jabs into the bottom of your left thigh due to the configuration of the arm rest connection.
Nice seat - nothing special, but nice that it is both window and aisle all at the same time.
Avoid this plane on any flight of one hour or more. No storage space of which to speak. Very limited recline. And no food for sale at all on this flight. Two hours thrity-eight mins. of pure hell. Shame on AA for using this plane on such a long flight.
I am 6'7" and I could stretch both legs out straight under the seat in front of me, so that says something about leg room. The window armrest on the window-side is smaller but it looked attached to the seat, unlike the comment in seatguru for the seat. You have a tray table in the rightside armrest and the seat in front of you, so a choice there. On the A-side of the plane, there is NO above seat storage, so get there early, but I had no problems finding space for a backpack on both flights in this plane.
While the tray table is in the armrest, the armrest is somewhat moveable.
8A is a single seat on the left, the overhead bins are on the other side but small. AA usually let you check larger carry-ons and collect at your destination. These regional jets are worked hard and may not be the cleanest later on in the day.
The left hand side of the ERJ-135/140/145 is one of the most comfortable rides in an airplane you can have. Does not matter that this plane is small. The A seats are fantastic. Window and Aisle and IMO very good leg room. I rather fly on this in the A seat than a 777 on any trip any length
The left hand seats on these airplanes are some of the best seats you can get on any plane, period, business class included. You get to sit by yourself. I"d much rather be on these than buried in a middle seat on an Airbus or Boeing. I ride these things all the time--San Angelo TX to Dallas, Champaign Willard to Chicago, etc.
Avoid these flights at all costs! The seats are low and at a bad angle. I'm not even that tall, (5'10") but found there to be no leg room (made worse by the low seats) and limited padding on the seats. Worst airplanes I've flown in.
