What is the difference between the crj100 and the crj200; in size, age, fleets, engines, etc...?

I think the only differance is a minor engine upgrade and an increased landing weight..

Lovely planes, but -- too cramped for more than a 40 minute flight -- and absolutely awful on a "long" flight, i.e.,, DTW - BGR -- the SAAB is a much more comfortable plane. I've tried every row -- 1 on back, and there just plain isn't enough space between the seats -- always getting shoved out into the aisle (where I trip the flight attendant). Worst case though is a window seat -- I just cannot shove out the side of the aircraft, no matter how hard I try

The don't mind the CRJ, but I am 6'2 and at the window seat you have to put your head at a 90 degree angle to your body inorder to see out....thats the only thing I don't like...the windows seem too low. I prefer the Dash 8.

The window seat on the CRJ is killer. I flew DFW-JFK on ASA, and my back hurt for two days. The window is much too low, and the fusalage bears into the leg room. It feels like you are mashed into the side of the plane. The aisle seat on the way back was much better.

I had the unfurtunate situation in having to sit in a window seat on a CRJ BGR-DTW (just the route you mentioned nwafflyer) 2 hrs and 20 minutes. I much prefer window seats. I am only 5'10" and the window was much too low. The Mesaba Avro on the way back was much nicer. Try the CRJ BGR-MSP as that was a summer seasonal route for NW on the crjs. I prefer the 1-2 seating on the ERJ much better. I also agree that the Saabs are awesome aircraft.

I wonder if canadair could make the CRJ-200 with the window placement of the 700s and 900s because those 6 inches make a world of difference.

I am so glad to know that I am not the only person who has thought the window is too low on the CRJ! I fly on AC's Dash 8's and CRJ's every 2 weeks and as far as comfort goes, I prefer the dash 8. CRJ Aisle is okay, but overall the Dash 8 I find much roomier.

Never done the CRJ, but last Friday I flew window seat in a Dash 8 for the first time. Window was just in the right spot it seemed like although the engine was in the way right up until we flew over downtown Denver at around 8pm and I had an awesomely unabstructed view  Smile

Bombardier addressed the window problem and corrected it on the CR7 and CR9. The CR1 and CR2 were derived from the highly-reliable Challenger Biz jets where seats were a little lower and better places. It simply was not designed for "commercial" flight.. However, the CR7 and CR9 were totally redesigned in terms of passenger comfort, and also the slow climb rate was abolished with the new CF34-8C1 engines. Can anybody say "Rocket"

Yes, the original CRJ was a bastard child and was Bombardiers way of saying "Hey, Look at us, we make airplanes too." Now that the CRJ proved popular, they had some time to design better planes that are much more comfortable for passengers. Including you 6 footers.  Big grin

So if you wanna fly a CRJ, try the CRJ-700 or CRJ-900

See the Difference???

Guys,

And the next question is: what is the difference (MTOW and range) between CRJ100, 100ER and 100LR (some sources say, 100 and 100ER are the same thing, only LR is a different one)? What are AC CRJ100s (in particular, C-FSKE, c/n 7065)? Our photo database calls some of them 100s, some others 100ERs… Are they really not the same?

Thank you!

I flew a crj 200 i think, lufthansa.

I thought it was very comfortable, using the window seat. However, i'm not the tallest of people so i can understand that many people find it a bit cramped.

Very cosy for shorter people as myself though.  Laugh out loud

There is a diffeence between 100 and 100ER.

100 has a max take off weight of 21,523kg, 100ER is 23,133kg, and 2,582 litres of additional fuel load.
