Specifications are informative. However, could you please advice what is cargo load capacity
if its freighter only.

A very modern turboprop. I have flown on this aircraft twice, and was quite impressed by the level of noise. All aspects of the flight were significantly quieter than any jet I've ever flown on. Legroom feels a lot better, although I'm only 4 ft 10 inches. Even then, the difference in legroom was noticeable. The noise suppression technologies effect is very clear. The 4 abreast layout means you'll always have either a window or aisle seat. Adding to this, turboprops are not older than jets, and they look and are way cooler

This plane is a densely packed cattle carrier. I weigh about 260 at 6 ft and was seated next to a 350 lb behemoth. Paid full price for 2/3 OF A NON REPLICABLE 17 inch wide seat for a 3 he flight. And I thought Southwest was bad!

Much faster but much noisier than the 300

What a beast! U gotta love it.
Excellent performance and really good handling on gusty
x-winds. Made for real pilots.

I was impressed with the performance of this aircraft on short field take off.

Love the Q400. Probably my favourite plane. Nearly as quick as a jet on short-haul routes, not much noisier (and a more pleasant sound to my ears). Comfortable, good leg room and you still feel like you're flying.

loud, slow, too hot/cold, cramped and very easy prey for turbulence. What's not to love.

Smooth, quiet, impressive performance (especially on take-off), but found the cabin to be a little plain and dreary, kind of like a Beech 1900D.
