Anyone who knows how the CRJ1000 is doing with these two carriers?
When checking flightaware.com, most aircraft types appear in droves, but when entering "CRK" only one or two flights will appear, even during the daytime. Most I have seen is four aircraft in the air at the same time - this is surprising as the combined active fleet now counts 20 aircraft and most flights are between 50 minutes and 3 hours, so they should appear in larger numbers...?
Trip reports here and videos on youtube give generally a thumbs-up for the CRJ1000, but flights appear to be lightly loaded and everyone loves an empty seat next to them when flying (even on the A380), but how are they on full flights?
The galley layout is a bit unusual as they have a huge 5-cart sideway-mounted galley no 3 with the forward lav directly opposite, must be inconvenient for cabin crews trying to prepare for cabin service with pax going in and out of the lav? Couldn't they have used the CRJ900 galley configs?
The Iberia livery makes the CRJ1000 look better proportioned than the Brit Air Eurowhite which makes it look anorexic, me thinks.

I remember having read BBD claiming that the CRK is performing above spec, but it is true that we haven't heard anything from the operators. Then again, the fact that both are regional subsidiaries means they won't make the media much. But BBD is not really making much publicity either, even though it would be crucial to increase the customer base beyond the only two customers.
