Just had to deadhead in a 757. It gets my vote for the worst airliner cabin. To top it off, it was a -300. I think I was in row 400. Took 45 minutes to deplane. Fun.

Enough
The 50-seat CRJ is not my favorite to commute on. I think the ERJ's are actually slightly more comfortable than the 50-seater from the Great White North.

I've never ridden on one, but I wonder how the Metroliner compares, comfort-wise.

I would rather sit in a DC8, DC9, DC10, MD11, MD80, 717, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, 777, A300, A310, A320, A330, or A340 anyday versus a barbie jet or turboprop. More than a 30 min flight and my ass starts hurting really bad.

The Metro was comfortable once you did the Howard-the-duck walk down the aisle.

Those seats cradled you like a little baby....and then the garrett sisters whispered you softly to sleep. (well, after the hearing loss sets in it seemed quiet...)

That's funny. I'd rather sit in a Saab 340 than in a middle seat in a 757 or the "non-window" window seat in a DC 9. But I guess you have a thing for any aircraft other than a "barbie jet" or a turboprop.

Have you ever been on an EMB-120 or an EMB-145 Jumpseat? Pure torture.

wait, those aircraft have jumpseats? holy crap. from what i've seen of the cockpit walking in as a passenger, there is NO room for a third body in there.

the F-100 has to be the worst jumpseat. Its like sitting on a 2x4 between two oven racks full of avionics. Now I understand why it was called the dutch oven.

There isn't any room for a third person but they still managed to squeeze a jumpseat up there. It's ugly to say the least. But if you are trying to get to work you gotta do what you gotta do.

well, to boost company morale, i think that the jumpseater ought to get the FA's seat and the FA's will sit in their laps. of course, if you FA is a guy.....

Unfortunantely this aint the 70's anymore. Many FA's have an a$$ the size of Butter Bean "The King of the Three Rounders"

I'd have to say the Jetstream 31's seat 1A. Nothing to look at but the bulk head 6 inches from your face and after a few minutes you're left with a permanent lean to the right. Seat 1C is just as bad.

in the 120 or erj u can get a little more space by just lowering the seat back and sittin on it. u get a couple more inches and it's not any more uncomfortable.

Nobody has said the mighty Beech 1900? Does it even qualify as an "airliner"?

I rode in an Avro the other month. That was comfy and roomy.

Contrary to the recorded Raytheon Briefing anouncement the Beech 1900 is nothing more than a long King Air. Thus No Jumpseat.

By the way, who in the heck is that guy in your avatar?

CRJ 900.

Love to fly it, HATE to ride it it. 'Specially how Mesa configures em. Barely any recline, knees in the seat in front of ya, world's smallest lav's (which get serviced only when a pilot has the cojones to refuse to leave the gate til it's flushed), aisles so narrow even the skinny people are bumping ya on the way to the stink closet, and . . ..


3 1/2 hour flights! UGH!

1900D, Dash-8, CRJ 200 -- all WAY better than a Mesa 900.
