I flew on an XJ CRJ-900 yesterday and noticed something odd. About 6 of the window shades pulled up and the rest pulled down to close. There was no particular pattern, because the window across from me pulled down and mine pulled up. Any particular reason? Or did the folks up in Montreal goof up.

Sure there wasn't a pattern? It's usually the over wing exits where the shades go up. This is due to the way the door is and where there is room for the shade to roll up.

I also noticed this on the CRJ-700, but only one behind the emergency exit door on both sides of the aircraft.

It's to make sure the shades go down in the case of an accident, so that the view is not blocked by a jammed window shade.

I don't really see those things being "forced" down in the event of an accident, but okay.

This was aft of the overwing exits. 16A, 18D, 19D pulled up. 16D, 18A, 19A pulled down.

Our (Comair) -90's have the same thing going on with the window shades. I have always wondered about that.

Given enough G-force, they will. Think about it: the one that stow up sometimes will fall down if the runway is bumpy enough.

LOL you've got a good point there.

I think I have read somewhere that if the shades are mounted below the window, it is because there is wiring or air ducts or something like that installed above the window, so there is no room for a shade.

Not just on the CRJ900 but on most aircraft types.



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me
