I have been on Air Canada's E-175 (or E-190?) once. The seats that AC use are so uncomfortable, small, hard, and short. And the baggage bins are way too small. Even now, year later, I still cringe and try to avoid flight legs with Embraer regional jets on any company. That being said, these C-Series are expensive, but they have features of a real 21st-century plane. I also like the A340, B777-300ER (love it), ... When you trust German and Swiss quality, having Swiss on board is a welcoming sign of confidence.
