Short flight from SRQ to DFW. Temperature was not a problem. Unable to store even a large paperback book in the overhead compartment on the left side of the plane. Would avoid this aircraft if possible.
I was on a short hop from Fort Wayne, IN to Chicago's ORD for a connection. One must keep in mind that this is a small jet. I am grateful to AA to offer business class. I use this airline to get to ORD and DFW and enjoy the business class service. On some of the older jets the seat could use an refresh. But it does offer great leg room and normally good service for a regional jet.
Seat depth, from back to front is short. Feels like your sitting on a bench seat... lots of leg room, no arm rest on the bulkhead. Pretty much a drag.
All First class window seats have a misaligned window. One has to lean forward to see out of it. Also, absolutely impossible to store anything on the A side of the First Class cabin. The flight itself was pleasant, and the FA was very attentive to the needs of the passengers before and during the flight. This plane is far superior to the tiny regional jets (E135/145) used by AA on short hop flights. But, it still far from a true first class flight
An awful seat, only marginally better than many coach seats I've experienced over the years. There is no overhead space. I almost always check my luggage but for 48 hours I thought I'd just carry my bag on. The seat is not all that comfortable 1st Class is the farthest away from the bathrooms which are all the way in the back. Bad seat, bad layout, bad snacks. Not a good value.
Very uncomfortable, waste of first class dollars. The overhead bins are tiny and all bags needed to be gate checked. Seat belt was too small. By far, the worst aircraft seat I have ever used.
no need to buy 1st class, this seat is behind the curtain from 1st class. Don't pay to check baggage. You have to gate check at door of plane.
View out window very nice, engine noise a problem, cannot hear cabin announcements during climb, no recline.
Get an aisle seat because the window seats angle down & give little headroom. Gate check your bag because storage bins are small.
This is the absolute worst airplane in the sky. Not sure how they could make it more uncomfortable. Perhaps put bus seats in? I get stuck on CRJ's a couple of times a year and really dislike those flights. The seats are narrow, no shoulder room, no leg room. My kids are cool with it though. It is good to be 11, I guess...
Seat 2A on most CRJ700 s that I have been on has a scratched window due to repeated contact with Jet Bridge shrouds. Visiability is limited at best.
This could possibly be the worst seat I have ever been seated in on an airplane! Getting hit in the head and shoulders by boarding passengers is a constant. Terrible seat, not worth the extra leg room.
Plenty of room in this seat, downsides are that there are no overhead bins on this side of the aircraft. Biggest grumble is that they don't clean the seats - the leather is pretty ingrained filthy. Is it really too much to expect that the seats could be deep cleaned once in a while?
Overall i had a very good experience. Aircraft amd seat better than i anticipated. Seat 3A gave me a suprisingly level of feeling of room and privacy, whichni know sounds odd. Crew was great and cabin was clean.
The CRJ 700 operated by Envoy Air as American Eagle was better than I expected. I flew to and from Nashville and Chicago in the same day on this aircraft. I do not use a roll aboard, and this eliminated standing in the jet way to retrieve a bag. The seat was as comfortable as the slimline seats Southwest is using. The planes were clean, the air vents worked properly, and the beverage service was quicker than on a 737.
While this seat has leg room, there is no underseat storage for it and it's at an odd location as the aisle runs straight into it coming from first class. Which means, people, carts, etc. also do. I wouldn't choose it again, it's kind of annoying.
To be honest, plane was terrible. Seat was okay, though dirty. Air vent on the roof didn't work, ac was blowing freezing air into feet all the time, plane was noisy when cruising and seatbacks are too short (I'm 5'9"). Pros that quiet during take off and flight crew collected trash many times.
This was a relatively short flight from MDH-ORD on a CRJ-700. Seating was reasonably comfortable for economy in a regional jet. Cabin crew was friendly, but there was no real cabin service -- nor was any expected.
I cannot believe law allows a seat to be so uncomfortable. The back has no lumbar support, the "padding" is at most 1" thick, the experience is like trying to get comfortable in a cardboard box. This is a lawsuit waitin to happen for sufferers of sciatica and other neurological condition. I am a 3 million mile AA customer. If this is an example of the new equipment AA has been promising for five years, count me out in the future.
The seat was very comfortable! I'm a bigger guy, and I didn't feel cramped in this seat, as it was wide enough, and the leather cushion was fine. The first class service was great - they offered a pre-flight beverage, and 2 in-flight beverages, along with three offerings of snacks. I'm not sure if this is standard, but it was only a 45 minute flight from CMH to ORD. And the aircraft is MUCH quieter than AA's other regional gets like the EMBs. The bulkhead seats did seem to have cramped leg room (of which I in 2A had no issue). The table is a bit tricky to pull out, as it's located inside of the left arm rest. It's a bit heavy, so be careful. All in all, great flight, service, and comfort!
