United Express Embraer ERJ-170


United’s ERJ-170s are operated as United Express by regional affiliates on short-haul segments in the domestic and North American markets.

There are two configurations of the ERJ-170 in United’s fleet. Check your reservation to confirm the aircraft type. United denotes the different configurations as Version 1 and Version 2.


This is a regional jet, which is smaller than United mainline aircraft. Flights on United Express affiliates are sold as United tickets, appear as United flights on reservations (it will say “Operated by [insert regional affiliate]” in small letters). The cabins are smaller and overhead space is limited. Passengers might have to leave larger rollaboard luggage on the jet bridge. These carry ons are not checked through to your final destination and can be retrieved on the jet bridge after the flight. Do not enter the terminal until bags have been delivered.
