The Wikipedia page is fascinating. Lots of exotic flights out there.
Yes but it's better than a day or two on a boat in the Pacific that runs infrequently!
I've flown YYZ
twice on the Continental Express Embraer and it's just fine, the A seat, which is an aisle and a window, is fantastic, and the pairs (B and C, or C and D, depending on how the airline letter their seats) are fine, no different to any other economy seat. Never understood the idea that small planes are "cramped" - with some exceptions (6 abreast BAe 146s), an economy seat is an economy seat, whether it's bolted to the floor of a CRJ or an A380. At least with a small plane it's easy and quick to board and there's no bottleneck at customs or baggage claim.
The most impressive sector on the Wiki page is the Embraer 190, which Air Canada fly from YYZ
- 5h17m. Had no idea they had that kind of endurance. Must book that flight some day!
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz
