Just read the HP press release on new Mesa/America West Express CRJ700s and CRJ900s that will each offer six first class seats. Is it just me, or is this unprecedented for a codeshare/regional to offer a premium class service?

The only regional carrier with first-class that comes to mind is the Northwest Airlink ARJ-85 aircraft. They have a 16F/53Y configuration and coach is 5 seats across. Since Mesa's CRJs are only 4 across in coach, it'll be interesting to see how it will come out.
