I am glad you are able to pull out a sample of one.

Since anecdotal evidence is good enough for you, I will do similarly. My communities airport has one carrier.

My next nearest airport has two carriers, but they don't fly to the same cities.

Thus I have no choice of carriers.

God, you really are a piece of work.

Just because there is more than one airline does not mean there is a choice. There can be SIX airlines, but only one goes to the desired destination.

I have been on plenty of regional jets, and I promise you, many of them DO NOT have a first class cabin. No matter how hard you try, I'm not taking the word of a freaking know-it-all over my own experience.

You have two carriers out of Lewiston. It's a 90 minute drive to Spokane which is served by most if not all major carriers. When I lived in NJ, it was 90+ minutes to PHL, 75 to EWR. I don't see that as a prohibitive travel distance.

By the way, driving to Lewiston is certainly not a hardship. My closest airport is an hour away.

You must not have long legs. It's not a matter of stretching for a few minutes here and there. It's about actually having room for your legs the entire flight. One cannot just put their legs to the side.

Not unless you are trying to get to the middle of no where, in which case you can live next door to LAX and still only have one choice.

Middle of no where = most of the world including the U.S.

Exactly. None of the planes that I have been in have had first class. None.

My experience is much different, and 80% of the RJ's I board have first class. I'm not talking about turboprops, but RJ's. Big difference.

Actually they can. It's not the most comfortable way of seating, but it can be done. Have you ever gotten the seat by the exit door where the apparatus comes into your space? You have to sit cockeyed in the seat with your legs kind of sideways. Same idea.
