Today I got the pleasure to fly on the brand new updated CRJ-550 and let me tell you wow. It was an amazing experience! On my trip I flew from Columbus,Ohio to Chicago Illinois. Let me get started with the review!
We started boarding exactly on time and finished well before departure time of 10:52am. Unfortunately we had to get de-iced as there was snow coming down! We then took off from Runway 28R and quickly climbed to our cruise altitude of 26,000 feet. Passing through 10,000 we were served a snack of our choice and water which I happily took as I had not eaten yet!
Now comes the real review, the seat the bin space and the legroom was great! The new CRJ-550 has closet type storage areas where passengers can put there roller board suitcases instead of gate checking them! I had the whole row to myself on the 2-2 Configuration which was real nice! Surprisingly there was on board WiFi which I took advantage of! There was enough legroom for at least a 6 foot person to stretch out! The seat was nice and comfy and the seat back was nice and big and the tray table was perfect for my iPad and my snack!
This was my first flight on the CRJ-550 and I think it beats any CRJ-700 or 900 in just about every category! Let me know if there’s anything else that you’d like to know about my flight!
