CS100 is a regional jet
CS300 is NOT
Even the CS100 has the dimensions of an A319 with a capacity of maximum 125 pax. This is close to the A318. I would not call any plane bigger than 110 seats maximum a regional jet. Just my opinion!
But what is a regional jet? Doesnt "regional" describe more the range than capacity? Isnt an A330 flying NY to BOS a regional jet? Is an E190 flying YYZ to PDX still a regional jet, at least in this case (5 hr flight!)? Maybe its better to make it depend on the maximum range of the aircraft.
