|Quoting Boeing Nut (Reply 5):|
Again, the confusing part is that they gave the 705 a different model designation. It's a 900 series CRJ given a 700 series number which, of course, is a totally different bird. It would be like labelling an E190 an E170 just because it is only configured for 70 passengers. I don't just understand the logic of it.

But if they related the new airplane it to a smaller airplane (i.e. the 700), they might generate more interest from regional customers.

Furthermore, why wouldn't you want to promote an enhanced version of the '900'.
