Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Hi guys

My family is going to Myrtle Beach, SC in May, and I was looking up various airlines and airfares. GOD ITS EXPENSIVE!! (From Newark,NJ).

When checking Delta Airlines, thru ATL, the connection is listed as a CRJ with 14 rows. However, if the connection city was CVG, it is listed as a CRJ-400 with 12 rows. What is a CRJ-400?

Also- Does anybody know why it is such an expensive place to fly to? Even Hooters Air is 159.00 each way....

Pinnacle Airlines- Northwest Airlink has CRJ 440s which are 44 seat versions of the CRJ-200.

I was not aware of Comair having any. I would assume maybe that is a 40 seat version of the CRJ-200.

Actually, CRJ100/200 have one row less, but after row 12, it is directly row 14. See what I mean ?

It was funny, once on my numerous CRJ trips last year, I had seat 14D. Arriving at row 10, I could clearly see that there was not 14 rows, but still, there was a row 14. For a minute, I thought I was overbooked !!!

Have a nice trip. CRJ are very nice planes

It is just a CRJ-200 with 40 seats instead of fifty. I have flown on it twice, roundtrip EYW-MCO. The first two rows are replaced with closets and some oddly shaped floor storage bin, but row three has a ton of legroom. The last row, the two seats next to the lavatory, is also replaced with a storage/closet apparatus.

The CRJ-400/440 is essentially the same airframe as the CRJ-200, but airline purchasers get a slight price break by agreeing to operate it with only 40 or 44 seats. I believe the airline must pay Bombardier the price difference if they ever "upgrade" the aircraft to 50 seats.

There's a two-fold motivation: (1) to compete with Embraer's product line which includes 37- (EMB-135) and 44-seaters (EMB-140), and (2) to allow airlines to skirt scope limitations in pilot contracts (which is related to (1)).
