Comfortable - A340-300
Least - Cri Cri (forget the spelling but look it up) I sat in one when my father had the great idea of buying it, having fun with it then giving it to me so i could build some multi time. HAHA. Well so far I am still without it.

The most uncomfortable airliner I've been on is the EMB-145. I've ridden with several different operators and that narrow cabin and the hard seats make it a groaner for me.
Since the seat pitch and seat width are the option of the operators, it's hard to say which other airliner is the most comfortable.
I've ridden on Singapore Airlines in the A340, the 747-400, and the 777-200 and they all are more comfortable than any other operator that I've flown with.
Is that just because it is your favorite aircraft or what? On DL, economy is the same all around, but up in Biz, there is more pitch on a 763 and a 772 than their 764. The same goes for CO, minimal difference in economy, while more space up front on their 762 and 772.
I don't mean to sound rude or like I am attacking anyone, but a majority of this thread is just all wrong. An aircraft is not just comfortable or uncomfortable, props excluded, it completely depends on the carrier. Therefore just naming off an aircraft without pairing it to an airline sounds not only uneducated, but extremely opinionated as to what your favorite and least favorite aircraft in general are.
Why a 200? Why not a 300 or a 400? Which airline are you referring to? Your post is exactly what my previous one is based off of.

CRJ-100/200 is the most uncomfortable for me. Even in the exit rows (I can't remember the last time I didn't get an exit row on this plane), it's bad.
As for most comfortable, I'm only going to compare Y (since basically, a Y seat is a Y seat, discounting gimmicks like PTVs etc) - I enjoy the M80 and the 767; I really like the 2-person side, as I'm a window guy and that means only climbing over one person.
25 ZRH: Most stupid post? This here. Comfort usually does not depend on the aircraft (besides noise perhaps). Example: I find the AVROs of LX with 5 abreast v
26 Burnsie28: Totally disagree, in November I flew the DC-10 MSP-HNL-MSP and it was one of the quietest aircraft that i have been on, and it was actually quite com
27 Noelg: Most comfortable: SQ 777, CX A340, BD ERJ 135/145, Pegasus 737-800 (exit row) I actually thing the Beech 1900C is one of the more comfortable airliner

31 N231YE: While you do have a valid point, I was in no way comparing the seats. An HA 717 is not similar to XY's Signature Service 717, obviously. However, I r

34 Gemuser: Most uncomfortable: Any 4 engined piston airliner! The noise and virbration is unbelivable if you have only flown jets & turbo props. Most comfortable

38 DernierVirage: It is hard to choose the most comfortable, so much depends on the cabin class, age of aircraft and carrier. However, I would probably choose the "poin
