Fortunately I only had to ride on 1 this year and it was a 57 mile hop from DTW-LAN. I think the total airborn time was something like 14 minutes.

I have to go all the way back to early 2016 for my last hop on a CRJ-100/200, which isn't a bad thing. I was due to fly on one this past summer but IROPS resulted in me being rebooked via ATL (the hop would have been DTW-DAY which is 166 miles and blocked at about 1 hour gate-to-gate). Being back in DAY now though, Satan's Chariot may be more difficult to avoid going forward and I suffered my fair share of CRJ-100/200 flights earlier in my flying days both while previously living in DAY and while living in the Southeast. My Flight Memory still shows the CRJ-100/200 on my Top-10 most flown aircraft list, and that's again without even having flown on one in six years.

I go out of my way to avoid them on longer hops but for a short flight it isn't unbearable. My parents are SHV based and the only options are 1x on a CR9 and 4x on a CRJ100/200. Would hate to be in a long/thin CRJ market.

I can't tell you the last time I flew on one, but then again, I try to avoid routes where one might be used.

Also, your comment about your top flown aircraft had me go back and take a look at mine. You have to get all the way to #4 before hitting a RJ and its an EMB-175. The CR7 and CR9 are #7 and 8 respectively and the CRJ/CR2 isn't even in the top 15

I must be one of the few that doesn't mind the CRJ-100/200. When I lived in ROC (and when I went to PWM occasionally) I was often subject to the Chautauqua ERJ-145 which was always late and a myriad of things would go wrong every time. Sure the A seats and big windows were nice, but they were always noisy and bags got left behind for whatever reason almost regularly. No idea why they were such a .... show of an airline (well I do have ideas but that's another story for another time) but when I took my first CRJ-200 I was marginally impressed, and I still don't mind flying on them.

My #1 airplane is the Airbus A320-200, and to that end the seat I have sat in the most is JSA (jumpseat A) (1X would usually translate into jumpseat D in the back, or F if you wanted to stay out of the way).

oh, the joy of being a geek with a logbook (spreadsheet)
  • 107 ERJ-135s/140s/145s/145XLs, the last in Apr 2016 (Continental Express, United Express, Delta Connection, American Eagle)
  • 101 CRJ-100s/-200s/-400s, the last in Nov 2013 (CR4 was a CR2 with two rows of seats removed; DL flew a handful of 'em ~2005-06) (Northwest Airlink, Delta Connection, United Express, America West Express, Independence Air, Mesa)
  • one CRJ-550, Oct 2021 (GoJet operating as United Express)

my most frequently flown aircraft was the 727-200, with 273 flights as a passenger (total of 306 when you count the 33 at Boeing Flight Test)

among currently active models I've accumulated 202 passenger flights on the 757-200 (plus one at Flight Test), 187 on the 737-800, and 122 on the 737-900
GW McLintock and wakesetter93 like this.

LOL, I would expect nothing less from you.

Hey kipper, any news on how Bacon's new mom is surviving him? If the adoption doesn't work, what happens to him? (I'm pretty sure you're not willing to become the human of last resort for him, plus I don't think Grace would appreciate sharing her happy forever home with him.)

Wow, your log goes back quite a ways! Mine only started in Q3 of 2018. Being Dallas based and AA loyal for the first few years it's no surprise that my #1 is the 737-800 (39 flights) followed by the A321-200 (26 flights).

I used to keep a log until sometime in 2016, when it just became too much to keep up with. Between 2016 and 2019 I probably flew a little under a million miles, and some days I was on even three or four flights. Now I know I have flown a lot and that knowledge is enough for me (for now).

when it's 1-2-1 J, we'll each take a window (curious if it'll be open seating in this "cabin" aka outside balcony?)

I can't really remember- mine was probably during the ASA (All do not hail Satan's commuter airline!) days. I did get to try out an E-135/145 a few years back when dabbling on United and nearly managed to give myself a concussion when I hit my head on the door of an open overhead bin. I don't think of myself as fussy but I do not like planes that do not allow me to stand fully upright in the aisle.
