It seems that I´ll be flying soon on a British Airways Avro RJ100.
How does it perform? is it quiet? spacious?

The Avro's flaps are quite noisy, take a look here:

Also heard that the thing is built like a tank.

I've experienced quite a bit of noise on rollout after landing. Probably brakes, since the aircraft doesn't use reverse thrust. It does have a spoiler, but it seems that they use the brakes pretty heavily....


Finally made it to an airline mecca!

I have flown on Northwest Airlines' RJ-85 before, which is a hair smaller than the RJ-100 I believe. Really, not a bad plane. Seating seemed to be the average in the industry, and she felt like any other plane. The neat thing for me was sitting under the wing. Lots of flap action and at night, you can enjoy a cool blue flame coming out of the exhaust.

Nice enough plane, however it is a shame that with British Airways, they have squeezed in a six abreast configuration whereas most other carries have a five abreast. So it is more cramped than it would be but for short flights its fine.
