To be nitpicky: the magazine forgot to add the 3 x CR9 ordered by Atlasjet, so the orderbook is now 62...  Smile

So now I know why IB Regional Air Nostrum only has one CR9, they're waiting for the outcome of pilot union talks... well, now that the A318 is cancelled, the CR9 seem like a logical capacity-filler between the CRJ200 and the A319. Are the 89 seats the result of a scope clause that allow up to 89 seats or is it due to practical purposes onboard (extra galley/closets etc)?

I wonder when there will be more info about the 900X stretch... still just one row extra (as mentioned in FI in January) or three rows extra to make it a true 100-seater (FI February)?

Fly, baby, FLY!
Come, fly the prevailing winds with me
