includes a 7.5% increase to the 900's wing trailing edge, a 2% to 5% increase in thrust, and larger windows.

No launch=No customers
|Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 3):|
Bigger windows sounds nice...
|Quoting Aeronut (Reply 4):|
Bigger windows??somehwat surprising. More likely modified window reveals which let in more light. They have done this on the challenger and global product lines.
|Quoting Planemaker (Reply 8):|
Yes, BBD is indeed considering larger cabin windows for the CRJ900X... not "modified window reveals".
FYI, the new Challenger 605 has 5 cm taller windows that have been moved 6.5 cm higher than on the 604. As you know, the 700 and 900 already have a higher window placement than on the 200. Increasing the size on the 900X by 5 cm would be a minor modification.
|Quoting Bahadir (Reply 7):|
AtlasJet CEO mentioned in AirEx 2006 that they are interested in 7 more CRJ900s and will be interested to switch to 900X once it becomes available. It's not a big number to become a launch customer but it's something.
|Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 10):|
I think Planemaker wrote in another thread a while back that BBD didn't have any firm orders for the CRJ900 but launched it anyway.
|Quoting Rikkus67 (Reply 11):|
BBD revised window height on the -200 series after numerous complaints from the low height of the early versions of that plane...
