Worst thing I've heard all week! I hate the CRJ200s! I'd fly an ERJ145, Q400, or ATR72 any day, but not the CRJ200!

Living in this outstation, I can only wonder when that'll be my only choice for a connection at DFW, CLT, and ORD.

I'm sad to see Alaska retire the Q400s for this reason.

Yup. As someone who moved overseas as a kid for a while and flew on these all over the place, I've never understood the American aversion to prop planes.

My location is only 30 minute flight to ORD, but I will look at flying another airline instead of flying CR2's, they are the most uncomfortable plane in any fleet

I was hoping those things were gone for good. Hopefully they stay somewhere they can be easily avoided.

Well... there's a headline I didn't expect to see today.

Oh well, hopefully I can avoid them.

Which is ironic given that DFW-STL and ORD-STL were some of the last MD 80 routes. So, so comfortable.

Given the weight and balance on this plane, they'd have to downgrade everyone in F if the flight isn't full. Or put the F seats in the back. (The CRJ-200 is very nose-heavy)

A CRJ200 is better than nothing - which what alot of these small midwestern cities would be seeing thanks to the regional staffing problems.

I expect that AA is doing this more for the pilots than for the aircraft. My hope is that the Air Wisconsin pilots will be trained -- over time -- to fly the larger regional jets that AA seems to prefer, and that the Air Wisconsin fleet will eventually transition to such jets.

Sorry, newbie question, but why does everyone hate the CRJ200? What's so bad about them?
