Alaska (Horizon?) flies these OAK-PDX, and I'm a fan. Compared to the jet service on United and Southwest:+ Fabulous views out the window, thanks to lower altitude+ You get to land PDX on the shorter runway, without having to queue behind all the jets (from a roundabout angle)+ Quick to disembark: Pull right up to gate and throw down the stairs- More cramped cabin- Less room for carry-on, mostly mitigated by gateside baggage check and pickup
@rchen: Yes, I flew on Horizon. I really dig it. I heard that this is very popular between PDX-SEA as well.
They are common on shorter domestic routes in Oz too - known as "bugsmashers"
