Let me preface this post that I’m an actor, entertainer and storyteller that like to make my posts entertaining yet informative or ask a question with some dramatic flare while stepping on a few toes along the way with some creative license to be stomped upon :-)
Not considering gameplay because the current CRJ is like trying to give instructions to a drunk winged monkey the day after St Patrick’s Day, I’m a bit conflicted lol.
I’m 3rd generation Portuguese American by way of my mom who’s parents were from the Azores and Portugal. From Dad it’s Scottish and English.
So, where am I going with this seemingly nowhere near topic? I’m getting to that you impatient nut job!
CRJ vs ERJ, yup the CRJ is from Canada and ERJ from Brazil and genetically speaking the ERJ is better. I mean us Portuguese invented post Roman world travel, trade and tolerance until 300 years Of Spanish rule and inquisition, setting us back and at some point the British Empire got the upper hand and ruled most of the world and created the East India Company. Yeah, there’s China and Japan that were great in those days, but who traded with them first :-)
So Canada has some great history too but there is some French so some defeat is expected.
What the he’ll happened Bombardier??? You focused so much on your C Series You Let the Q400 and CRJ down, behind, and about to loose a lot of North American jobs. You have about half the sells of Embraer who’s only hurtle is the US Scope Clauses.
I do Remember flying in a CRJ, its like squeezing the Grands biscuit dough back into the can after it’s been open, or my girlfriend’s thighs into those jeans for a 2 hour flight but never flown on an E-Jet.
My question is, are there any real pilots here that can speak to real world experiences? Anyboby flown as pax to shed their opinions? Which do you prefer? You think Bombardier days are numbered and only a matter of time before bought out by Airbus, Lockheed or Northrop Grumman like some of those in the business world have suggested (my not so qualified opinions included)?
My goal is to get a good conversation started … And/or locked out by moderators within 45 minutes of posting :D
One thing I forgot to mention I’ve got some family from both sides, from both mom and dad that were born, raised and live in Canada :-)
