Any Bombardier/Canadair Regional Jet pilots, dispatchers or technical
support staff out there?

I'm interested in your impressions of several operational

- practical payload/range compared with advertised 2000 mi @ max

- fuel flow @ cruise Mach

- ability to maintain design Mach 0.89 cruise in airways operation, "out
west" vs. congested eastern terminal area ops

- ATC handling of CRJ in High Density Airport approaches and terminal
operations:  as "air carrier jet" (hot/high approach profile) or
"commuter/turboprop" (low/slow/moveable traffic profile), any related
delays incurred and impact on trip fuel burn

- any other operationally interesting factors
