Aeromexico Connect ERJ-145 Collection [RETIRED]

Post by felipegcmh »

Well, today May 1st was the last day for the Connect ERJ-145, for the few planes that were operational. The first plane (XA-ALI) was delivered in 2004 to what was back then called Aerolitoral. Many came, many went, and they're finally gone.

ALI, BLI, and CLI were the newest planes left in the fleet, but, they were the ones that were around the longest (the first 3 deliveries to AeroLitoral), although they've been parked since the end of March. All the others left in the fleet were older planes that were sourced much later from Crossair and Trans States Airlines (the reverserless 145s). XA-RLI flew the last revenue flight, SLI2221 IAH-MTY.

ALI, unofficially nicknamed Alina (you can guess what CLI was nicknamed :shh: ), the plane that began the transition out of the Metro III and the Saab 340.

CLI was the 3rd plane to join the fleet, delivered at the end of May of 2004. I flew on this plane from CUL to MTY a little less than a month later. Eventually became the SkyTeam logojet.

For a while, they operated the HMO-PHX flight, before AM dropped the route altogether

YLI, wearing the hybrid AeroLitoral - Connect transition scheme.

YAC arriving to PHX from HMO. My mom was on that flight, she flew to PHX to help me pack whatever was left in my apartment and keep me company on the drive to Ohio.

Nice! I'll have to look through my photos to see if I can find any of them. Not sure if they flew to MIA, but that's the only place I feel like I might have shot one at.
