So I'm not sure if this is the right plane, but my ticket said that my plane was simply 'CRJ' There was no number associated with it. I was flying from Detroit to Lexington. I am a female about 5'5 and weigh approximately 315 lbs. Flying is hard for me. I sat in seat 1B because it was the only one available when I booked. Although it doesn't show on the seat map, I was located in Comfort+. There was no first class options. While my foot room was ample, I BARELY fit in the seat. It was a struggle. I had the fixed arm rests that went fully down the seat, so there was no overhang of any kind. In order to sit in this seat, you have to be able to fit BETWEEN the arm rests. While my hips fit, BARELY, I very much hung over when it came to my arms and shoulders. I definitely took up extra space. Let me just say that I feel SO FORTUNATE that I didn't have to sit next to anyone. There was a man who had the seat next to me. It was CLEAR that he did not want to sit next to me (I DO NOT BLAME HIM). We got very lucky and there was an open seat right behind me and he actually knew the person in the seat next to that. he was very kind and didn't make a big deal, but took the seat behind me. I couldn't have been happier. This was by far the smallest, most uncomfortable seat out of all the flights I had for this trip (I had a total of 4). At the same time, however, the seat belt DID fit. I didn't need a seat belt extender, though, I had to stretch that seat belt as far as it would go. It wasn't extremely tight, just a little inconvenient to buckle. I got it, though. If I wouldn't have been able to sit by myself, I would have felt uncomfortable and bad for the person next to me. I don't believe there was any good seat on this plane for a person my size.
The exit row seats do have more leg room than a standard seat. The window exit row seats do not have an arm rest against the window.
This is supposed to be a "Comfort Class" seat. As others have said, it is anything BUT comfortable. Tiny, hard, narrow seat with a very low window and no usable overhead space. The very small carry-on I use for these commuter flights didn't fit in this plane, so I ended up having to remove items and gate-check the bag. If you have ANY option to fly another plane, please do so. Avoid this plane if you can- my flight was only 50 minutes, but adding in the boarding and taxi time made it about two hours, and a day later my back is still hurting from being crammed into this ridiculous aircraft. If they would take some seats out and make this a 30 seater, it MIGHT be tolerable, but putting 50 seats into a plane this size is cynical at best. I will do everything I can to avoid this aircraft for future travel.
If your 5 ft 11 in or taller do not take this plane unless you have really short legs.
My wife and I got Seats 13A&B while flying standby several years ago. Our original flight left before we got to SLC, due to deicing and maintenance issues. We got the last open seats on the jet. They were cramped, noisy, and looking out the window gave me a sore neck!!! Nevertheless, we were glad to be getting to our destination at a reasonable hour!!! SkyWest, Comair, ASA, etc please retire these jets ASAP!!!
Not a good seat, but at least you can lean into the aisle as nobody is going by, until after the service cart is finished and a few people use the bathroom. It's usually a short flight so I didn't think it was a big deal, but then again I was just happy to make an earlier connecting flight and save 3 hours of downtime in ATL.
This plane is quite small, so no one has great leg room, but I found 1A/1B to be roomier than the other rows. As noted, there is no floor storage, so the FA stored my bag for me overhead. The tray (stored in the armrest) was about half the size of a typical economy tray.
This plane is very small. I'm 6'0 and I hit my head on the overhead compartments, which are too small to fit most carry on bags, which have to be valeted. no wifi or power on these planes. However there is complementary drink and snack service.
I have been on dozens of these planes and honestly, there isn't a good seat to be found. Extremely low overhead, HARD seats, low windows, very little leg room (at least for someone over 5'8") and just plain uncomfortable. I would much rather be in the Saab-340 for my regional connections
Wow, this plane is cramped. Now, I actually like the CRJ700 and love the CRJ900...but this one? Dang, better hope your neighbor showered. Tight seat pitch, really narrow shoulder space, no matter where you sit. I'm 5'10" and 235lb-ish...and have had to spend an entire flight hunched against the wall, while my linebacker-neighbor had to lean out into the aisle. Luckily, this plane is used for blessedly-short hops from my local airport to the hub about 100miles away.
I can confirm no recline. Also my carry-on which has always fit in the overhead would not on this plane, however it did fit under the seat, it usually does not fit under the seat.
Flying Delta Connection out of my hometown 'regional' airport means I'm always on a CRJ-200 for at least the first and last legs of any trip. I'm 5'10/235. All smaller, regional planes are a challenge for just about everyone (narrower seats, fuselage that curves into your head space for window seats, VERY limited overhead bin space, narrow main aisle to the lav at the back, etc.), and maybe I'm just accustomed to it after scores of flights per year, over nearly ten years, but I really have no complaints at all about this plane. I have far more issues with some 'big-city' FAs' attitudes than the metal we're flying on. Since I choose to live 90 minutes by air from a DAL Hub (and 35 min by ground from a UAL hub!) I'm happy to have the 'regional'-size plane service available, instead of having to Cry the Grumbly Fries of the Star Alliance on every freakin flight.
Honestly, this seat's legroom is incredible on Expressjet operated flights. Tons of space, cold but what you would expect from a exit row seat.
No overhead space, as it is dedicated to emergency equipment.
Row 7 seats (in front of the emergency exit row) do not recline. Neither to the seats in the last row of the aircraft (rows 12 & 13). The first row is up against the bulkhead and has limited legroom and no under-seat stowage.
Regrettably Delta cannot seem to take this plane out of service - for a MSP to CMH route it is close to intolerable
What everyone else has said about this plane is spot-on. It's tiny, it's cramped, the windows are too low and it's noisy. Airlines like it because it's economical, but honestly, I enjoyed my flight on a USAir Dash-8 better than I did on this one.
I "affectionately" call this plan a "flying sardine can" as you are crammed/packed into this tiny 50-seat plane. As someone who has flown on many flights on this aircraft and who has sat just about everywhere, I can state that there is not one comfortable seat on this class of aircraft if you're over 5'8", 200 pounds, or have broad shoulders (I fit all 3 categories). If you can't avoid this plane, I feel for you and I suggest an aisle seat.
All of the seats on this plane should be red. Avoid if you get freaked out by cramped, small places. I'm 5'3 and I hit my head on the overhead bins every time I stood up. I had to bend over in my seat to look out the window because they are so low. This seat did have a nice view of the wing.
The foam in the seat cushions needs to be replaced. I could feel the seat's frame under me. I have sat on more comfortable stone park benches. Windows are too low. While they're OK for looking down at the ground while in flight, good luck looking at anything around the airport during taxiing, etc. Probably just right if one is 5'0", which I am not. The only nice thing I have to say is that you can gate check your bag on these flights and avoid the carousel wait and extra damage inevitably inflicted by the baggage handlers.
