CO and NW Saab 340s... I know they're not entirely small, but they are the smallest I've been on. Always a great ride on them!

SAAB 340 or EMB-120 for commercial aviation (not sure which one is smaller - I am guessing the SAAB).

Some kind of Piper for general aviation.

Smallest overall would be the Cessna 152 and the smallest aircraft operation a commercial flight would be the Bell 412, or D228/Metroliner if we're just counting planes.

PA-38 Tomahawk and Cessna 150. grumpy 

I don't know which is smaller, nor do I know which is less comfortable. boxedin

For commerical flights, either a Saab 340 (NW Airlink, American Eagle ) or EMB-120 (United Express).

For any flight, a Piper Warrior.

Piper J3 Cub, can’t get much smaller than that, no electrical system, no radio, hand prop the engine to start. You fly this IFR all the time (I follow roads, railroads, etc.)
