    Is it a 2 seats on 1 side, and 1 seat on the other? I don't know the airplane designation numbers, but that's the smallest aircraft I have been on, IIRC 80~ seats? They actually had to have some people move from the front of the plane to the back to balance the weight or something. CHI --> Greenville SC.

    I don't have a fear of flying, but being that was the first time for me being on a plane that small....and the moving of people....I was a little jittery.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Smallest plane I've been on is a Cessna 185.

    For commercial flights, I did a few flights on the Saab 340 Turboprop before they all went away. The corp jet we use is a smallish Embraer. Don't recall the model though.

    Sounds like an ERJ-145. 50 seats. I saw once that we had a crew deadheading from CLE to MIA on one of those and I told a scheduler "This is why pilots and flight attendants hate you."

    I try to avoid them.

    Phenom, probably.

    Smallest plane I've been in was a 2 seat Grumman Tiger or a Piper Decathlon.

    It was the 145. My carry-on barely fit. It has enough clothes for tomorrow and Wednesday.

    60% of 9M pounds from Mrs. Susan reads. That is 5.4M pounds and using 1.39 pounds/dollar is $7.506M. The total is now $205.001M.

    I am pretty sure that is the plane which I usually fly when I go from DC to Albany, NY. Once when I was working, due to a flight being cancelled from DC to State College, PA, I was flown from DC to Baltimore and from there to State College. The plane to Baltimore had about 10 seats. I don't recall what it was.

    Smallest plane for me would be my uncle’s Piper Cub (front-back seats) on floats. Fun ride!

    Smallest commercial flight had 8 seats flying from St Croix to St Thomas.
    The most interesting- a few more seats but hatching chicks under the seats.

    Good Morning Lodge!!

    I was on one of those (or something similar) on a NWA flight from MSP to Traverse City. By the time I got to my gate near the end of B Terminal I am pretty sure I was two blocks from my house.

    Smallest plane for me was a biplane. I don't remember the model, but I definitely remember getting to fly it over Marco Island for a few minutes before the pilot did some aerobatics.
