View Full Version : Embraer 190 vs Airbus 319 for CLT - MSY

What's your opinion on an Embraer 190 vs an Airbus 319 from CLT to MSY? I'm generally really anxious on takeoff no matter how often I fly, and turbulence always really gets to me. Do you think the Airbus would be a smoother flight at takeoff and if there's any turbulence? I have heard the Embraer is really quiet and a nice plane though...

I don't know how each plane compares in turbulence, but I do know, as someone afraid of takeoff and turbulence, that I feel much better in the Airbus because it has the 3/3 seating as opposed to the 2/2 of the 190. It just feels sturdier to me somehow. That being said, I have been in 190's and 175's quite a bit and have only once had a bumpy ride. I just always feel more comfortable in the bigger/wider plane.

So I ended up on the Embraer 190 and it's actually a totally nice plane. Doesn't feel much different than an A3xx or Boeing 737. The flight was turbulent due to weather and I suspect wasn't any worse than it would have been in either the A319 or 737.
