    How is the Q400 fleet compared to the United Express planes (RJ200, RJ700, E170) in terms of comfort and safety?

    In terms of comfort, I'd rank it above the CRJ 200 but below the 700 and E170 (depending somewhat on whether you have access to Economy Plus and/or upgrades). Of course, Horizon has the free beer and wine, which is nice.

    In terms of safety, I believe all scheduled flights in the U.S. are equally safe statistically because incidents are so rare. That said, I'd speculate that Horizon is likely better run than some of the United Express operators.
