Where are they flying from DFW...I would hope MEM, and not MSP or DTW

MSP-DFW, all CRJ-900's will be based initially from MSP.

Its actually upgrading from a CRJ-200 flight. Plus the CR9's have a First Class cabin and the new bins will fit rollerboards. This isn't bad at all.

Still a CRJ tho. Sorry it is bad enough on a 1 hour flight let alone a 3 or 4 hour flight.

MSP-DFW should be mainline A319

Says Who? Can NW profitably fill an A319 on that route with the type of frequency they would like to provide their valuable business travelers?

NWA does fly Mainline to DFW from MSP. This is a filler between mainline flights. (US-AW), UA, CO, DL all do it. AS PSU.DTW.SCE said they are upgrading from a CRJ-200 to a 900, with first class.

Just matching capacity with demand......these CR9 flights to DFW are upgrading from CRJ-200's, allowing NW to maintain off-peak frequencies. One such being a 10am DFW-MSP departure. Don't like the CR9, then there are plenty of other NW mainline options to choose from out of DFW:

DTW - (5 total - all mainline) 4 DC-9-30, 1 A319
MEM - (3 total - 2 mainline) 1 CRJ-200, 1 DC-9-30, 1 DC-9-50
MSP - (6 total - 3 mainline) 1 CRJ-200, 2 CRJ-900 (2nd one starts in July), 2 DC-9-30, 1 A319

The CRJ-700 is worlds different then the CRJ-200 and with NW operating the new NextGen CRJ its going to have even more room.

NW's are the first next-gen CRJ's, which offer a much higher level of comfort (I won't quite say E-jets level, but much closer than any previous CRJ, with bigger windows, better seating, and overhead bins which can hold a rollerboard, as well as lcd lighting and a newly shaped interior offer more space and less of the cramped feeling in window seats. Truly, MSP-DFW wouldn't be bad on this flight, given the preferability of 2+2 seating vs 3+3, I'd say it'd be about as comfortable as the A319, if not close. I hate CRJ200, and the older CRJ7 and CRJ9 aren't great, but it looks like they've made some very worthwhile improvements for passenger comfort in the new ones.

As for wanting an A319, why don't they just send the A330, it's more comfortable, right? If they had the demand for A319 as often as their pax want to fly, they'd do it, but as they don't, I'd rather have more frequencies on CRJ9 than fewer on A319.

I don't know but the CRJ-900's and I don't know if it is just these Nex-Gen's but I feel I have more room in them than I do in most mainline a/c. I have been in the XJ one and the seats are very comfortable and have alot of room and most notably the larger windows.

I am listed on the first revenue flt tomorrow to DFW, hoping to get first class.  Big grin

Yea I did the W&B for this flight and thank god it was a familiarization and FAA flight, with the rain in MDW if this had been a revenue flt there would have been a lot of folks left behind due to landing weight restrictions on contaminated runway at MDW.

If this is a problem down the road, then why will they be using this machine into MDW? Seems silly that Airlines used 757s into an airport that you cannot operate a CRJ-900 into safely....Does this mean that the CRJ-900 is too next gen that it cant do simple 757 stuff? Sorry to sound so simplistic, but it seems that these "so called" next gen aircraft are as about as rugged as a crate paper banner in a hurricane.

What say you?

The 757 is the most capable plane on the planet. Pretty much anyway. It has the best short field performance compared to capacity in the commercial aviation market. Look at SNA. AA operates 757 to DFW and IAH operates 733 to IAH. The 733 is always restricted. Not so much on the 757.

XJET, please read the whole statement.......I know that the 757 can perform wonderfully out of MDW.......I guess I should re-word my statement, eh?

I am saying silly me, that the very idea that they should try operating a new CRJ-900 into an airport that they fly 757s into and the CRJ-900 has a weight or load penalty.....Sheesh....What good is that new CRJ-900 if it cant even under wet runway conditions haul itself full into and out of MDW???

I am saying that if the 757s can do it why cant the CRJ-900.........not putting down the 757....

Actually fly on an E-jet and then compare it to the -700/-900 and tell me what you think is more comfortable. I have ridden on all series of the CRJ and even work the -200 and cannot stand them. Working it on the other hand does provide more room in the galley than the E145 family.

I've flown NW 757-200s in and out of MDW. They are great fun on takeoff and go out loaded with passengers, no trouble whatsoever, in the sky with plenty of pavement to spare. 757 is a rocket.

I didn't think you were knocking the 757. I was just saying that plane is far more capable than most. Even the samller RJs. Hell, the E145 can't even take some of the short runways that the 757 does. The 757 is one of the only planes that was built with good performance in mind. At least in the civil aircraft realm. Most others are made to be purely economical. The 757 accomplished both.
