Your opinion on CRJ550


#1

hey there! Guys there’s lately new plane announced from Bombardier CRJ550 Whats your opinion about it?


So basically bombardier took CRJ700 and shortened it… One of first operators would be United …


#2

Not even shortened, it is a CRJ700 but “re-certified” as a different aircraft

The 50 that United are initial getting are used CRJ700s which are being converted:

“United plans to operate 50 CRJ550s, all of which will be converted to the new derivative from used CRJ700s.”

Let me guess, the ERJ550 will also get additional fuel tanks.

They did the same some years ago with the ERJ145XL
