I was on an FRJ last week. It's a great jet. If you can get any of the front seats, do it. I'm 6'4" and was able to cross my legs in seat 2A (front row, pilots side of plane). I had heard that it climbs like a homesick angel...and it it does. It was remarkably quiet, even with the engines hanging off the wing just behind me. Very smooth flight. Compared to the CRJ I flew, the FRJ run rings around it, from a passenger standpoint. From the front I didn't notice any "fishtailing", although I did notice a bit of yaw in the CRJ. Take the FRJ if you get the chance. You might be pleasantly surprised.
