Hey out there.
I just came across this picture. A Bombardier CRJ specified as a CRJ440LR.
I couldn't find anything about it either on a.net's own 'aircraft data' nor could I find anything on Bombardier's own site.
I have never heard of a 440LR. So as far as I know, there is no difference. From the training and certification standpoint, they are both CL-65-2B19's. Pinnicle's CRJs are same as all the other 50 seat versions, only with fewer seats. The 100 and 200 have very minor differences, and different companies may select slightly different options, but I don't think Bombardier built a long range version
Its the same plane. The only difference is that the 440 is certified to hold 44 seats, where as the 200 is certified to hold 50 (there are 40 seat versions too). The reason for the 44 seats is for scope clause purposes.

The reason airlines throw RJs onto routes is to make money. Why can't they flight Boeings or Airbi on every route? Because you, the consumer will change airlines for a $5 difference in fare. Yes folks, we are responsible for all the bad service and small aircraft, and no pillows, because that is exactly what we have asked for when we consistently book the cheapest flight we can. It's inevitable.
