One of my favourite aircraft. To fly on, I've had the experience of both 2x3 and 3x3 seating and the former is definately superb, although I really couldn't see what all the whinging was about with regard to 3x3, its a bit tight but nothing traumatic like some have made out here in the past.
The only niggle was the vitually non-existant hand-luggage locker space for the seats under the wing, but let that be a lesson to those who take HUGE cases into the cabin when they ought to be checked in as hold luggage!
And let's face it, the 146/Avro reaches the parts other jets cannot reach!

amazing aircraft, very agile and convenient
I remember when Turkish first got them, i flew into Trabzon with a British captain giving line training at the time, it was a smooth flying and landing aircraft
most people complain about the flaps, to me, it was the one thing that helped make the avro more famous!
Could always tell when a 146 was overhead with the flaps in or out of the first setting lol
The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!

Well, to remain within the confines of the question, I have to say beauty, although the 100/RJ70 series look a little stunted.
Having flown on Manx Airlines/BA G-MIMA oodles of times, I would say the best seat is 14F. First twin seat after the rows of triples, more legroom, more stowage space and chances are you get the seat to yourself.
