They're front heavy to the point where unless you have about ~50 total bags in the back, you'll need ballast for most flights. Add a jumpseater to the front and its a few hundred pounds more of sandbags to toss in the aft.

How are they front heavy?? They have the engines at the very back!!
Curvature of fuselage means my head touches the ceiling when seating by the window

In terms of regionals I'd choose the 170/175's or a CR9 any day over the CR2/1's. Anyone remember the UAL and NW Avro's? Good times

You don’t consider the bulkhead to be C+?? Delta does! Haha
