How Are Air Canada Jazz's BAe-146-200's

Wed Jul 24, 2002 11:04 am

I will be flying from Newark to Montreal in two weeks on Air Canada Jazz on the British Aerospace BAe-146-200. How is this plane? I am a little nervous as I have heard it has a shoddy safety record and I have not flown Air Canada since 1983, when I flew YYZ-LGA on a DC9-30.

Shoddy safety record?!?!

I want to know who you heard that from!

It is seriously a great aircraft to fly on, the best "regional jet" by far as it is more suited of a "real aircraft" brading, as it is wider and taller inside, more like a 737 than an ERJ-145.
They are nice planes, i like them for sure, and i have flown on many of them, not the Air Canada ones, but on a few 146-200s.
with it being AC tho, beware of the FAs, i had a Montreal based crew going to LHR once, and they were the most ignorant Flight Attendants i had ever witnessed myself.

You might be OK tho, in my experience the Regional Crews are a bit more accomadating.

Have a good trip!

I flew a JAZZ 146 Jet in June and got a photo of the cabin... Here are some ways of accessing the photo:

Those airplanes are maintained by Air Nova in Halifax- One of the Premier 146/RJ MRO's in the world. There is no shoddy maintenance work done by these guys.
You are in good hands.

People seem to either love or hate the 146's. Personally I love them...

...I've flown AirBC's BAe146's at various times, and I consider them more of a mainliner than a regional. They're quite wide, Air Canada's connectors have them in a 2+3 configuration and it's quite comfortable. Generally I've found them quite, smooth, and roomy. My only real complaints are that the overhead bins are small, and there's no audio/video. But generally I prefer the 146's over a DC9 or 737.

Yes its comfy and is 95% like a 737 or DC-9 interior wise, doesnt have the regional jet feel like the ERJ and others.
Treat others as you expect to be treated!
