you said it!!..its a beauty...i have been on AM eagle and co express and will book future flights....personal space, once seated, is better then larger jets and on CO-ex, a very nice lunch was served..I flew in the summer and the climb-out, up thru the P.M. convective build up ,was impressive..just lite chop..and it comes in for landing much like a MD80 with nose up ,as opposed to the Canadair w/nose down and that can be a bit unnerving, esp. in turbulence..glad you liked it.!!.
I am 6ft3in , by the way, and was very comfortable(again, once seated) but you avoid the cattle car mentality when boarding..you feel like a VIP
