Well, I would assume it would be more like the CRJ-200 rather than the 700.......just a guess though.

Just a question, but would those flights even be profitable with only 40 seats if they are just a crj 600?Why take out 10 seats?

I know Comair needed a lighter airplane going into EYW, and I've heard they installed RJ700 wings (with slats) on the 40 seat models.

buhh bye

Come on guys...its just a fifty seater with 40 seats in it. They were also planning to buy some with 40 seats. I've been in a few of the 40 seaters and they're just like the 50 except for the last row of 2 seats is gone (row 13) and 2 rows from the front are gone.
Bombardier is charging Comair less for the 40 seaters to prevent Comair from going to Embraer for the Emb 135. However it looks like that may be changing...

Well, in theory, you might take a 48 seater, replace the first three rows with 2 rows of 3 first class and a little closet, and have a 42 seater....

Northwest's second order of CRJs is supposed to be for the 40-seat CRJ. It is type Canadair RJ 440 which are being delivered starting 2003 I believe.

Let's make a few things correct here...

The CL-440 is not a CRJ70 with slats. The CL-440 is a CL-65 (50 seater) airframe, with 6 less seats. They are equipped with 2 closets therefore reducing the amount of seats.

Express Airlines I (Pinnacle) is already operating these on behalf of Northwest. The original order of CRJs of 54 a/c had to be modified slightly to satisfy the NW scope clause, so some of the 50 seaters are arriving with 44 seats. So, to correct an earlier statement of NW getting these in 2003 - they're already here.

These airplanes cost the same to operate. Why have them? to satisfy scope clauses and to better match capasity to markets.
