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.
So if you wanna fly a CRJ, try the CRJ-700 or CRJ-900
See the Difference???
CRJ-200 is the first one, and the CRJ-700 is the second one.. But this is one of my personal favorites... View Large View Medium
