ExpressJet began modestly in 1979 when Atlantic Southeast Airlines procured its first aircraft and opened a maintenance base in Georgia where the first flight took off from. By 1982, Atlantic Southeast offered the third highest amount of daily flights from leaving from Atlanta. In 1983, the airline purchased Southeastern Airways and gained nine more routes and six more aircraft. In 2012, the airline was merged with American Airlines to become American Eagle and fly for the first time under the new name on February 13.
American Eagle flies from Dallas to cities like Durango, CO, Knoxville, TN, and Charleston, SC. It also flies to all major city hubs in Texas, including but no limited to Amarillo, Fort Hood, and Houston. Other cities directly served by ExpressJet include Washington DC, Colorado Springs, CO, Atlanta, GA, and the international cities of Cozumel, Regina, Surabaya Juanda.
ExpressJet’s fleet includes Bombardier CRJ200, which seats 50 passengers. The Bombardier CRJ900 seats 65 people while the CRJ700 holds 65 people. The Embraers are the smallest in the fleet, holding between 37 and 50 passengers.
ExpressJet has a generous checked baggage allowance for flights traveling within the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and the Virgin Islands. The first checked bag is just $25 and $35 for the second checked bag. For a carry on bag, passengers are allowed one carry on bag plus one personal item as long as the carry on piece fits comfortably into the overhead bins and is smaller than 45″ in length+ height+ width. A personal item is a purse, laptop bag, or a briefcase, or any type of bag that isn’t 36″ in length+ height+ width.
While the majority of the planes only have economy seats due to size, some of the larger planes do have first and business class seats available.
ExpressJet has taken a few steps to offer basic but unique amenities on their flights. Some flights offer valet carry on luggage services, no middle seats (for larger seats), and assigned seating to avoid the competition for “prime” seats. Complimentary Satellite XM radio with over 100 channels is available on most flights. All shorter flights offer snack and drink service and longer flights do offer meals if the flight goes through meal time.
