Then...the Fokker F-28/F-100 series.
Now...the Bombardier CRJ series.

Avro RJ-100 would take my vote.

The CRJ. The Avro maybe the most comfortable for pax but is the elast fuel effiecent and is a maintenance hog. The CRJ is fast, long ranged, and quiet.

True First Class cabin as well as 33" pitch in the main cabin make this the best regional around!

Bombardier CRJ-900. Brand new and gorgeous. By the way, is the ERJ-145 actually the same thing as the Brasillia? I could have sworn they were two seperate planes. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

CRJ, by leaps and bounds.

ERJ is way too loud and too cramped. Just a brasilia with jets. It can climb, though.

ARJ just a marketing scheme from the BAE 146. Its a great jet to take out of Aspen since no other can make engine out climb requirements, but 4 engines is just too many.

Dornier 328-Jet - too slow. The only difference between that and the prop version is a few extra knots and four less levers in the cockpit.

CRJ can hold 50 people VERY comfortably, and is economical, not to mention faster than the ERJ, and cheaper to operate. Quietest engines, as well.

I kind of lean towards the CRJ myself.

Speaking of which, can kind of RJ's can I expect to see in DFW?

CRJ200/700 series. it is very efficent, low operating costs aircraft.
BAE146/Avro XX actually should be accounted as normal airliners, not regonal. they have very advanced engineering, wide fuselage, and they cannot compete with CRJ/ERJ. Avro is very niche acft, it is perfect for short takeoff/landing like in London City, but not for typical routes served by CRJ/ERJ.

From my travel experience, the CRJ.

Plus, it's Canadian. Hockey, beer AND regional jets? You gotta love it.

Bombayhog,

the "Brasilia" is actually the propeller-driven Embraer 120, the ERJ-135/145 do not have a brand name like that as far as I know, but someone here in the forum referred to them as "Jungle Jet" and I must admit I like that term.

You guys voted for different jets from a passenger`s perspective, from a rampers view the CRJ offers simply not enough volume in the cargo hold, especially when used to feed large hubs or doing weekend charter work.
Not to mention the extremely noisy APU.

The ERJ is much easier to load and has slightly more volume. Another point for the ERJs is the high gear strut which makes it much easier to place some chocks around the wheels.

The AVRO`s offer by far the largest volume in the cargo compartment but they are a pain in the ass to load (because of the low gear the cargo doors are at a very low level, too).

Just my 0.02cents.

My eyes say the CRJ, my neck says the ERJ, and my legs say the ARJ. But if we're allowed to pick birds in development, I say Fairchild-Dornier 728JET. S-S-S-S-S-SASSY!!!!

CrewChief32,

VERY intersting perspective! Just goes to show just how much actually goes into an airplane.

One thing about the CRJ regarding the APU -

The exhaust port is out the side of the airplane which causes two undesirable effects.

1. It is VERY noisy on the ground, as CrewChief32 pointed out.

2. If the aircraft is pointed white (Comair) the exhaust from the APU leaves a huge black streak across the back of the airplane. Three things would solve this: Don't use APU in the air, not very practicle...move the APU to the stinger of the tail like the CRJ-700 has, again, not practicle...or by simply painting the lower tail a dark color like black or dark blue, that black streak is not visible.

It doesn't detract from the performance of the airplane, but I've heard countless passengers worried because their plane has "been on fire."

I've only been on the ERJ. I'd say it's ok as long as you sit on the 'A'-, or sinsle seat-side.

I'll get to go on a CRJ in July if the Comair strike is resolved by then.

Don't know when I'll ever get to go on a F-DRJ or ARJ.
