I flew twice on a UA Express (Atlantic Coast) CRJ 2 months ago.
They are downsized airliners, but are reasonably comfortable and quiet. My overall take is the following: If you had previously flown a UA 737 or Airbus on a route that has RJ's, you may be slightly disappointed. However, if the RJ replaced a Brasilia, Jetstream, or other turboprop, you will be elated!

Default Nice roomy interior for the size of the plane

....but, if you want to look out the windows are extremely low. I'm 5'-5" and I had to make an extra effort to see something. The space for luggage over head is fairly generous.
The positive side of my trip was how smooth the take off/landing was, pretty much like riding in a sedan.
You can feel the engine's force while taking off w/o the shaking.

Arrow Only on Air Canada before Air Canada Jazz.

It was good I don't see how this would differ in seat pitch. Good overall flight from Chicago to Montreal Dorval.

Edit: It was a CRJ-200 in Air Canada in 96'.

I fly on the CRJs quite often and I must say the CRJ-700 is a big improvement on the 200. I'm 6'2 and on the 700 I don't have to get on my knees to look out the window. One gripe I have about the RJs is that using the lav is a chore in itself. I have trouble just getting inside and closing the door. Then I have to bend my head to the side just to be able stand in there. If you're tall use the restroom before you board, believe me it's not fun one bit. All in all I think the CRJ is very nice to fly on.

As far as I know, UAL has never flown any RJ of any model. UAL contracts with other comuter/regional carriers to do flights under the United Express name. These are not UAL airplanes or crews.

United Express is in essence a franchise operator. Small companies operating under that name. Many have come and gone. ACA to be latest loss to UAL due to lost of this Contract/Franchise operator. Mesa has renewed in new planes. Not sure of their route structure.

Maybe you should learn the difference between your asshole and your elbow then, after you get that down pat, maybe you should learn how to read then, later how about learning the difference between Mesa Airlines and United Airlines.

You may even want to consider actually heading out to the airport one day and maybe even purchasing a ticket and going for a ride there diklik.

I know the difference from my elbow and the a**hole you are! As for the topic I didn't read a specific carrier ie..Skywest, Mesa, ACA,Trans States it just said United so that pretty much left that open.
Also I think I will actually head out to an airport as it seems I've been working in the airline industry for over 10 years now!! So I think I might know a thing or two about the difference between Mesa and United since I work in PHX where Mesa is based. No need to purchase a ticket either because I fly for free JACKASS!!!

I think the same as to UAL, Corp. Holds rights to Saul Bass "U" and any United markings even under the "Express" banner. These as perceived by public take them as one company as a trick of marketing. But this only due to UAL contract holdings to those carriers. Even most people of common take these airlines as one without looking at actual picture of things. Was nice when overall Regional's flew under own banner like Rocky Mountain Airways or RANSOME.

OK, but I don't consider ****tter cleaners "airline industry" workers. You'd think that after 10 years you could at least move up to cabin cleaner or barf bag restocker.
Tuck that chest back in there you little 10 year old Banty Rooster.
BTW, What happens when they find you stowed away in the aft lav for that "free flight" Alice?

Man you are a comic. Say what you like since you have no clue. I just wish I had a profile as cool as yours. Why can't you say what you do? Or is it you're fliping burgers at Burger King wishing you had a job at an airport. Til then go get on your knees and service your make believe F-16 pilot buddy, you wannabe Air Force fool.

Hey F27:

Since you work at the airport, you should know the difference between United Airlines and its regional affiliates who fly under UAL colors but are, in fact, completely separate companies.

I'm very well aware of the difference between the two. I used to work for Northwest Airlink so I'm quite sure I know how it works between a commuter and the main line carrier.

I simply responded to a question from psamurai, If you guys put two and two together you knew what he/she meant. I understood the question without psamurai having to write "Express" or get technical by listing what independent carrier in the question. For Pete's sake some of you people are not the only ones that know alot about aviation around here!!!I'm not some new 12 year old kid that doesn't know the difference between 707 and a DC-8. So some of you people need to get off your high horse and quit being so damn anal about things.

Default You all in there!!!

if you people can't respond the original question would kindly leave this thread alone!!!!
We are very busy people in here trying to discover the CRJ's misteries and wonders.

FYI:
CRJs are not suited with flare dispensers, therefore I wouldn't recomend to book a flight into unfriendly sky.

Haave a good day!!!

Hey there Mr. Nobody,
Relax a little, quit being so high strung you self promoting little dweeb.
With your little entry level position you had better be more careful about whom you call out.
I do enjoy your posts though, you have taught me a great deal about airplanes with your tremendous amount of knowledge and insight.
Thank you!

No complex here, just writing the facts. I guess I'll have to work on my posting. I'll have to start responding to every thread and bad mouth everything someone posts. "I better be careful about who I call out", I must tell you, you've got me scared now. I do believe you came looking for this one by simply posting your typical nonsense as usual.
You're Welcome. Any time you need to know something about airplanes just let me know, because I'd have no problem schooling you.
Now if you don't mind I'd like to be through with this thread and you. Thank you!
