I know that this sounds like a weird topic, but has anyone noticed that the CRJ seems to get very cold on some flights. I flew on an ACA and an ASA CRJ flight of about an hour in length, and towards the end of level flying, it got freezing in the plane. On both occasions, I got my sweater out of my bag, but it was still cold. The funny thing is that when we landed, it was close to 90 degrees in both cities.
Has anyone else noticed it? Is this a normal thing on the CRJ? I have noticed cabin temperature fluxs. on most planes, but never to this extreme and this quickly.

Flew ASA CRJ Atlanta - Toronto last August and had to stuff 3 blankets and 2 pillows between seat and fuselage panelling. brrrrr
Warm, sunny Toronto was very welcoming.
Still, better to be cold than sickly hot and stuffy on an aircraft I s'pose.

I was aon an ASA CRJ from AUS-DFW. Thank God it was a short flight. I was in 11B. It was sooo cold. I asked the f/a and she couldn't do anything. Also, the air conditioning vent wouldn't turn off. Itt was miserable.

Another aircraft that you could hang meat in is the BE1900. Once the engines are cranking, the bleed air is pumping into the cabin, and the only control method is a metal oval that you're supposed to push close. Doesn't matter though. Just one or two air vents open could cool the whole plane!
On a recent flight several people left the airplane with coats ON...in the middle of summer!

I've been told that the snsors for the temp control are in the overhead bin on the CRJ. That may explain the reason for it being cold, sure if they got a ton of stuff packed into them they'll give higher eadings forcing the AC to crank higher. The AC system is also great, works wonders, so that may also help.

I was on an ASA CRJ from ATL to TOL and it was freezing. It was April. Was 80 in ATL and 80 in Toledo and I put on a long sleeve shirt and had a blanket (which they ran out of blankets, so I gladly gave mine up to a female passenger).
Another thing about the CRJ was the flight attendant made me give up my seat at the wing and window seat to sit in an aisle seat next to the bathroom to "balance the aircraft". I must have been in front of the center of gravity, but still. I had to give up my window seat which kind of ticked me off. The whole reason I book flights months in advance is so that I can get a window seat, not to sit next to the bathroom.
But to answer your question. Every RJ I have been on has been cold. But then so has every Saab 320 and Dornier 380. So who knows
