Many people agree that a RJ flight longer than an hour is simply unbearable. With that said, what is the longest RJ flight that any of you know about? I found an America West Express CRJ operating PHX-MEM... WOW

LOL! My sister had to fly that PHX-MEM flight TWICE! She flew first class, and even then, she was ready to tear open the fuselage and crawl out. LOL! I think those should not be used on flights over 45 minutes! I have flown them for hops up to 45 minutes and I have no problem, but I can see it becoming insanely uncomfortable for flights up to 2 hours!

I've only done DL5710, 5711, 5712 and 5713 (my local airport BGM to CVG) for company business (Comair). I have found it to be a pretty decent flight (although only about an hour and 20 minutes). Its especially nice on one of the 40 seaters as you get that little extra bit of legroom (especially in 3A-D as there is no rows 1 or 2). However I don't find these flights any more cramped than a BA longhaul flight from NY-London in economy, based on my personal experiences anyway. I flew an American Eagle flight on an EMB RJ, and OMG, you want to talk about cramped. haha.

I wouldn't say anything over an hour is unbearable. I'd say over 2 hours is unbearable, over 1.5 is not prefered, and between 45 minutes and 1 hour 15 minutes is perfect. The CR7 might be a bit different, though. Maybe 1-2 hours is fine.
