2 days ago I flew on my very first CRJ900 US CLT-ATL and was impressed by higher ceiling, higher windows. wider seats, smoother flight than its CRJ200 brother but I was disappointed that windows are so spaced apart that if the airline wants to add more rows (as US did), you are actually staring on a wall and the windows are blocked by your seats.
Question: What airlines operate a CRJ 900 with seat rows appropriately spaced so that a passenger can enjoy the full window view?? Thanks for the answers.

NWA Airlink (MESABA) seems to have the same problems

It looks like you're staring at a blank wall.

"Sir, would you like a wall or aisle seat?"

If I were a passenger on these, it would frustrate me, but then again, the CRJ series have always frustrated me. That is why I typically get an aisle seat on these airplanes.

I've only flown on the Mesa CRJ900s and yes they do have this problem. So it's either Mesa or the CRJ900, I'm guessing it's just the Mesa arrangement. From my experience though the first few rows and the last two rows have a window view, although the last two you're really close to the lav.

By some pictures I´ve seen, Adria seems to align their seats with the windows, at least on the -900.

Somebody knows why the windows on the CRJ/E-Jets are so spaced apart?

Well, generally it is a weight savings... but also it is DESIGNED so that EVERY passenger gets a window, although it seems like some airlines are defeating the purpose.

But that seldom happens on these planes. Specially on aisle seats.

Why didn´t Boeing/Airbus/MDD/ etc.. go for the bigger spacing then?

Is the CRJ window spacing the same as the Challenger business jet on which the CRJ was originally based? It looks about the same to me in photos. If it is identical, that would answer the question.

It also looks about the same on later Bombardier business jet models like the Global Express and Global 5000.

As a matter of fact today I've flown MUC-AMS in a LH CRJ900 and while chatting with a very nice american lady I noticed too that the window was too far ahead of the seat, having to stretch ourselves to see outside. Maybe other rows had the same problem due to windows just being misaligned with seats. Legroom was fine, though
