As part of last week’s CSeries CS300 first flight festivities, Bombardier Aerospace gave the media a look inside the interior of CS100 FTV5, including the test rig and some seat photos.

Bombardier says it is creating the future with the CSeries family, which is going head to head with Airbus and Boeing in the 100- to 149-seat, single-aisle market. Interior features of the CSeries include:

  • More space for carry-on bags;
  • Capacity to stow oversized carry-on bags measuring 24 x 17 x 11 inches wheels first;
  • Lower bin access; and
  • Extra large windows measuring 11 x 16 inches.

Seth Miller is the AirwaysNews contributor who attended the CS300 first flight. He is also the founder of the Wandering Aramean blog and writes regularly about the airline passenger experience.

“For a regional jet the design does well in providing overhead bin space; wheels-in stowage for a 22-inch bag is a nice touch,” said Miller. “Compared to the newer Boeing Sky Interior or Airbus bin designs, however, it is still a bit tight.”

From a personal comfort perspective, this is not the configuration to judge on, since it is configured with the maximum capacity seating for evacuation testing, and not a typical customer layout, said Miller. “But the `normal’ height ceiling adds comfort compared to regional jets and the lavs are as close to full size as I’ve seen on a narrow-body airplane in a while,” he said. “It shows plenty of potential for being a comfortable ride.”
