It's time for me to "Meet the Fokkers".

My experience of flying VA Fokker 100s is on Perth-Kununurra flights of about 3 hours' duration. It's not a bad plane and the seat pitch is very generous (34 inches). My advice would be that the nearer you are to the front, the better: the engines are at the back of the plane and the cabin is noticeably noisier at the back compared with the front. Check Seatguru for more info about the seats.

I found the seat on the Fokker 100 to be quite generous. I don’t like the bulk head as I like to stretch my legs under the seat so I’d go for a forward seat from row 2. I found that more than suitable for a two hour flight from Brisbane to Cairns.

I am a platinum VA flyer but haven't been on a Fokker aircraft (yet). Do any of them have inflight entertainment? I was reading in the inflight magazine that the WA charter planes now have this feature, however I wasn't sure if it was referring to a different aircraft type

These are incredibly comfortable aircraft
For what it is worth folks.. 1E is a pearler for legroom as the bulkhead encroaches minimally in front of this seat so plenty of room to stretch. The downside - the arm rests are not movable and are solid as they include the tray table which is a pain when your backside is is equally impressive as my height!
