Do You Prefer CRJ Or ERJ?

Yesterday I flew for the first time a ERJ (Embraer 145, Regional, subsidiary of Air France) and to my surprise, the experience was good. I had have an horrible sensation of cramped sardine on Bombardier CRJ (-200 and -900, Air Nostrum). Thus, for me no point in comparing both planes: Embraer wins hands on. I appreciated very much the very big windows (one for each row of seats; by the way this is not the case on CRJ-900). My question concerns also the economics of both planes: are CRJ so much cheaper? Thank you for your comments. Regards

40-50 seat group: ERJs. By 50 miles. I don't like the smaller CRJs nearly as much as I do the ERJ.
70 seats: Toss-up...The E70 is nice, but the CR7 isn't bad either.
90+ seats: I've only been on the CR9, so it wins by default.

Oh, the ERJ. I loathe the CRJ in every single regard, especially the 50 seater, and especially seats 1A and 1D.

ERJ by default. I get on the CRJ in three weeks, and then I can officially say "ERJ HANDS DOWN!" Can't beat 1-2 seating!

Well, I like the CRJ-700. The -100 and -200 series on the other hand take second place to the jungle jets IMHO.

ERJs win with the fifty seaters by MILES (i absolutely hated MSP-CVG on a CR2 last year..), but i actually prefer the CRJ-700 and the CRJ-900 to their embraer counterparts. Just my opinion  Smile

Never been on an ERJ, been scheduled 6 times, but 4 cancellations, and 2 changes all lead to 737's. Out here in CA, all we have are CRJ's (UAX OO).

The only RJ I have ever been on is a Mesa CRJ2, and that was for a quick PHX-TUS flight. I didn't have any problems with the plane and the landing was extremely smooth. The flight was at night, so I wasn't trying to look outside. The F/A also gave each passenger a small water bottle in flight, which was nice for the short hop.

The CRJ wins for me, by default. The Next Gen CRJ's with bigger windows, etc. look promising.

ERJ, all models. CRJ 100/200 series are horrible, while the 700 and 900s aren't bad, but i still prefer the Ejets.

Hey everyone - this is my first post on a.net wave ! I've flown on a CRJ once and it was tolerable - albeit it was only a 1 hour flight from SDF to ATL on ASA (CRJ200). It was definitely quite cramped  crowded  and I had to crane my neck to look out the window; definitely not a comfortable airplane. I know the CRJ700's & -900's are more comfortable, but not as nice as the Embraer E-Jets. Overall, the CRJ is OK for flights that are less than an hour-any flight longer than that and they're not so tolerable.  twocents

About 8 years ago I had my first ever flight in a CRJ here in Australia, it was operated by Kendell Airlines and compared with the F27s that I used to have to take it was the best thing at the time, I loved it.
I had to wait till I went to the USA to get in an ERJ and found them to be even better and I wished they had them here. I loved the ERJ135 so much I even got a desk top model of one and tried as much as possible to fly ERJs every time I went to the USA, I even managed to book a trip across the USA from LGA to LAX with 3 stops and all in RJ's including one in a CR7 which was the newest at that time and then backed that up with the 14 hour flight home! People thought I was nuts, I'm still alive and very much enjoyed the trip. . The ergonomics for passengers of the CRJ 100 and 200 are not that fantastic and there the ERJ is a whole lot better. They both however do their intended job very well. Any airline thinking of a 50 seater jet could make either of these work for them, there is not that much between them when all costing is factored in. Many times I have seen A netters complaining how "cramped" an RJ is when we all know that a 50 seater will be smaller and it shouldn't be a surprise not to see 10 abreast seating with twin aisles.



I remember when the DC-3 was new!

I've been on all 3 CRJ types-

-200... hate. I'm 6'2", the lavs are too small. Probably couldn't handle it on a flight longer than an hour.
-700... not too bad. Then again, it was QX and there was an attractive FA on my flight.
-900... I dug it. I had the whole row to myself. Almost felt like a mainline a/c. Good seat pitch.

The only Embraer I've ever been on is a EMB-120, but I will be travelling on an ERJ-140 next month. I have the feeling I will like it more than the CRJ-200, based on past experience, but we'll see.

I have mixed experiences on ERJ-135/140's as well as CRJ-100/200/700/900:

The low cabin ceiling on both series is only a minor issue for me, as standing 6´4" I need to bend anyhow.

I found ERJ-145 HB-JAN of LX to be very comfortable in terms of seat pitch, whereas flights on AF Regional left the "very cramped even when paying Business Class fares. Avoid them !" in my mind.

Also with the CRJ's it comes down to the operator, but usually it was a bearable seat pitch.

The bigger windows on the ERJ-140's over the CRJ's indeed is a noteable thing when it comes to views. OTOH, skies in Europe are often cloudy or flights take place in the dark ...

While not being a jet, I like flying on the EMB-120 very much (especially from LAX to SNA).

I've flown on all of the types mentioned in this thread, excluding the CRJ-900.

ERJ135 vs CRJ200: CRJ200

ERJ145 vs CRJ200: ERJ145

I like that extra bit of room in the ERJ145, but the 37 seat 135 is just a little too small for my taste.

I don't have anything to compare it to, but I thoroughly enjoyed my ride on a Comair CRJ-700. Very nice aircraft, wide seats, smooth flight, everything about it was good.

I was wondering, too. Maybe the 1-2 seating gives an impression of an wider cabin.

Me personally prefer the ERJ over the CRJ.

I've only flown the Embraer 145, not the other variants

But I have flown the CRJ 200, 700 and 900s and I much, much prefer the Embraer 145, especially the isolated seat where you get both a big window and an aisle.

Airlines I have flown the Embraer 145:
Regional for Air France
Rio-Sul for Varig (when they had them)

I flew on AC's E-190 and AC Jazz's CRJ-200, and I have come to the conclusion that
the CRJ was way nicer. I would rather be on the CRJ if I had a choice.
The E-190 was OK, but for some reason I just liked the CRJ a whole lot better.

Doesn't 'ERJ' only apply to the E-145 and E-135, Devon?  Wink

Personally I have never flown on either, but I would pick the CRJ in an instant.  Smile
