I've flown on the CRJ 200, ERJ 145 and SAAB 2000. I prefer the ERJ, with the SAAB coming in second. Having said that, let me also add that this topic has been discussed countless times here and it always ends up with Bombardier lovers insulting Embraer supporters and vice-versa.

I prefer Embraer over Canadair anyday. Apparently some of ASA's employees don't like the CRJ, as I saw on one of their tugs a sticker with a canadian flag, and right beside it someone had written with a permanent marker AMERICA'S #1 BITCH. Pictures available upon request.

By far, my favorite is Avro if that counts. Next is Embraer and after that is Fairchild Dornier. A distant last is Canadair. I have flown on the Avro RJ85, Embraer 145, Do328JET, and the CRJ-100 and -200.

While i havent flown the CRJ, i've flown COEX's ERJ-145, sat in the "C" seat/side of the plane, last seat last row window.
Felt very roomy, and the plane was 100% loaded on a DTW-CLE flight, maybe it felt roomy because i was last row all the way in the back, not sure. Was also very quiet being next to the engine. Would have no problem taking another one! CRJ's, based on pics on airliners.net, i'd try to avoid if possible, but i'll fly on one someday just to test it out.
Flying a plane is no diff. from riding a bicycle. Its just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes. -'Airplane'

I used to really enjoy the CRJ's until I flew the ERJ. Just a jet powered Brasilia but alot more comfortable. I also still the like the FRJ's for their climb performance but not their cruise performance. Climb like a bat out of hell and crawl thru the skies at altitude.

I prefer the Bombardier, flew on the Embrarer a few times, just dont like it as much. My favorite turboprop to ride on is the DH8 series and the D328 was fun to ride on, even the EMB-120 wasn't bad, the SF340 just sucks imo, been on one way to many times and generally will avoid them.

I've flown on the ERJ and ER3 with Continental and American and the CRJ and CR7 with Delta. I would rank order them this way...
The DL CRJ flight was from Cincy to Knoxville. It was loud, cramped, and generally uncomfortable. The CR7 is a BIG improvement.
The CO ERJs, especially on the A side or C side if the seat next to you is vacant, are quite pleasant. The overhead bins held my bags, I didn't feel the need to duck down too much (I am 6'1"), and the seats are quite comfy. The longest route I've flown was IAH-Montrose Colorado. That's a little over two hours and I didn't mind one bit. Don't think I'd want to try it all the way to Boise though...
: I guess the Bae146 counts as my first RJ flight however as the seating was 3-3 and the flight over two hours so it wasn't a typical RJ flight. My pref
: Speaking from a strictly aesthetic stand point I would have to give top honors to the CRJ line. They are just dead sexy to me. From what I understand

: Embraer all the way! I love the loading dock doors so you donot have to walk on the ramp.
: The Do328Jet was by far the most comfortable RJ I have ever flown. I was on the A side, exit row, and it was just wonderful. Definitely the most room
