Trying to commute tomorrow. Was told 145 A/C #s 801-809 are lower weight birds. Is that true?

IAD-CMH tomorrow is #802, and it's full. Want to head to DCA if it is one of the low weight carrying ones.

Thanks

802 is an EP (underpowered hog). It's been a hot minute since I've flown her and done the numbers on an EP, but it will all depend on the fuel load. Do what you gotta do man but if you've got a better option out of DCA, take it.

Carl,

So an EP has a lower allowable weight than the other versions of your E145s?

Thanks,

Brad

Yes. Max takeoff weight for the EP is 46,275 compared to an LR's 48,501. Max landing is 41,226 (EP), about 1,300 lbs lower than an LR.

I am so glad I forgot those already! :D

@flyguppy - Looks like they switched aircraft. It's 842 now, an LR. And it shows it's only booked to 46.

@Saluki - :) Soon, my friend, very soon...

I thought 802 was a lease return months ago. It has been sitting at the hanger with the Ron kits for months, in storage for the lessor. Also 802 was on the airways side, not a spare.

See what happens when you leave! Hahah 802 is one of the new aircraft for United (more EPs on the way this summer I think yay) it's even painted with the Continental tail.

Since planes are going from the USAir side to the United side and most USAir ones are EPs expect to see more EPs roaming the United side soon. You are right 801-809 are EPs. Its not uncommon for those to be weight limited...I've seen as bad as limited to 46 pax a few times 48 is pretty common. I HATE seeing one of em on my commute because it means the jumpseat is about a 50/50 deal. The thing that really gets it is the zero fuel weight.

Not entirely sure, but I know 801 is living in BNA. It even made the news a few months back:

Scroll through the pics at the top, and BAM...801.

I did! Changed to #842 as we had seen. Had 2 open seats.

Other than the 1hr westbound ground stop for a level 2 rain shower (thank you FAA), all went well.

Thanks for the assist!
