... try not to book on the Airbus(for lack of a better word) if you can, this flight is basically a commuter flight...
No, Airbus does not make commuter planes. Airbus manufactures only big jets, with more than one hundred seats.
... when we flew it was very crowded and noisy with lots of kids
That tends to happen to most flights during school vacation weeks, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with "commuter" flights.
