I am excited as hell. United has released a new video on its CRJ-550. The features presented on the new aircraft include: Overhead Bins and Cubbies for bags, Premium Self Service food bar thingys (I don’t even know what to call them), and finally First Class. Its truly awesome, this video should sum it up in a few minutes:
I did not want to add many details as you can find them out in the video.
I’m confused as to what’s so good about this? The Refurbished Delta B717’s cabins really highlight how much better United could have gone with this cabin. Small or not it doesn’t mean you can’t make the cabin nicer. Headrests wouldn’t go amiss either
Take me to your XBox to play fortnite today. You ca take me to Moisty Myers, but not loot lake. I’d really like to, chug jug with you. We can be pro fortnite gamers.
Well United has introduced a new type of seat in the aircraft. Not to mention it is like the only model of CRJ with overhead bins that can actually fit suitcases. Finally, no more gate checking. Okay, finally to the finally, no need for snack service as you can get them yourself without having to wait. Finally to the finally to the finally, first freaking class on a CRJ.
Do you understand what scope clause is?
This is a converted CRJ-700 that will replace some 50 seaters in order to keep from Maxing out of new 76 seaters.
The DL 717 is a completely different category of aircraft, it’s not a regional jet.
The 717 cabin upgrades were done to bring it to A220 standards
N504GJ, a CRJ-“550”, used to be N605QX where it flew for Horizon as both Alaska and Frontier, then went on to fly at ASA for Delta, then going to Skywest to fly for American Eagle, before finally ending up with Gojet as a CRJ-550.
That doesn’t change the fact that this aircraft is still not anything special or much of an improvement. Again, comparing this to the delta B717, the seats could be much better, more amenities, lighting etc
