I am in the middle of a trip to Montreal this weekend. This is the first time I have been on a Canadair CRJ-200 and I think it has just about the worse view through the window of any plane I have ever been on next to a cargo aircraft. I try to book the best seat for viewing taxi, take off, landmarks and landings, but the CRJ put my eyes about ten inches above the top of the windows frame. Had to bend parallel to the floor to see out. Seating was also very cramped.
Past threads have links ( linkies) to sites that help you find the best seat, but I am not on ‘my’ computer now.
Though not my favorite aircraft, I think the Dash-8 has the best view. Large windows and high wing give great overall view from any seat.
Best : Dash-8
Worst : CRJ-200
