Prop: Dash 8 (-200 to be more specific), fun little planes, my preference might have more to do with QX than with the plane itself

Jet: Bae 146, one of the most comfortable rides I've been on.

Fairchild Do328/428 Jet - it's a real pity they never made it. Skyway still has a handful of them and they are fantastic. 'friad I'm no fan of the ERJs - talk about sardine cans! Havn't seen the 170 yet though.

In terms of looks, probably the CRJ-200.

Hey Pe@rson I agree with you the CRJ looks hot and I have the great experience to fly on the only company to fly the CRJ900. ..MESA AIR ROCKS!

Definitely the Saab 2000, because of the comfortable, silent cabin. More airlines should have chosen the Saab 2000, but it was basically the CRJ/ERJ hype against which the Saab 2000 lost. What I find sad is that most passengers still prefer the CRJ/ERJ over a prop like the Saab 2000, they don't seem to care about comfort as long as they get their jet-powered aircraft.

For looks and performance I like the 146's/RJ's, but the CRJ's look nice too.
Out of the ones I've flow I prefer the Dash8-300, very quick acceleration, especially with a light load Big thumbs up

I have to be a little biased and say the ERJ as COEX, but I also like the CRJ700 and CRJ900...very sharp aircraft.

It just has to be a Jungle Jet! They look Fantastic (esp in new United Colours), i love the solo seat (On the 145 this is), and they are great value! I'd love to have a legacy!

However, 146's/Avros i think look great and i'd love to fly in one
