This one going to be a game changer. Faster, quieter, more efficient with capacity nearing or exceeding the very popular 737-700 and A319. Built and designed in Canada by Canadians (Air Canada hope you listening)

Air Canada have already expressed an interest in acquiring the C series to replace it's fleet of airbuses. See Globe and Mail article below.

Bombardier was a trail blazer when they developed the 200, a fine plane, which started regional jet service.

Bombardier builds nice regional jets IF YOU ARE A DWARF. The windows suck you get a crick in your neck looking out the window plus the bottom sounds like it is coming out of the plane on approach if you are sitting over the main gear.Fast but very uncomfortable.

The latest 700/900 series are quite comfortable to fly in. I'll grant the earlier series starting with the CL65 was a tad cramped. But, as these were not intended as long haul aircraft some compromises were made.
As for strange sounds when the gear is selected, this aircraft is not unique in that area. Having been flying since 1950 I can show you any number of aircraft with that characteristic.
Looking forward to the maiden flight. And, yes, it will be a game changer. Bombardier and its forerunner, Canadair, have been making excellent aircraft for many years.
I worked as an engineer for Canadair when it was owned by General Dynamics and took part in the launch of C-FEUX. The CL 215. But that's another story.

They've learned their lesson and the CSeries windows don't have that problem.

Hmm, they seem pretty comfy from up in the cockpit lol. Maybe you should drive.

Some people don't enjoy working in a profession that requires food stamps.

Great. What's that got to do with the cabin being uncomfortable?

He made a good point about how cramped they are. You said that they seem pretty comfy from up in the cockpit. How do you get a seat up in the cockpit of a CRJ? Say it with me I know you know the answer...

Right but he's referring to being a passenger, not the pilot and there are ways to get to work up in the pointy end that don't require food stamps...no EBT card in my wallet :)

I will agree on the 200, but keep in mind the 200 is a BBJ converted for the airlines and that is why the windows are so low. The 700's and newer are much better.
