It has one, and it is horribly uncomfortable.

Yes there is one. It's smooshed up against the side of the wall when looking into the cockpit.
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

Yes, there is one that slides out and folds down. I rode in it yesterday. Not exactly comfortable, but still pretty fun Wink

Not the most comfortable, but it's also better than ones I've sat in on bigger aircraft.

And you can only see out of the window if you're less than one meter high.

You almost don't know it's there, you've gotta look for it  Wink

It's no worse than the MD-88's...also smooshed in there, and usually used as a paper clamp for the fuel slip.

The biggest problem with the CRJ jumpseat is having that RAT handle right in kicking-range. Lift a foot without watching and *thoomp!*.
Ask why..

For me (6'6" or 1.98) it wasn't too bad. Didn't have any space to move my feet around, but was very doable for a 1hr flight
