|Quoting 1337Delta764 (Thread starter):|
Why is the CRJ-900 always compared with the Embraer 190 if the CRJ-900 is closer in capacity to the E175 than it is to the E190? The Embraer 190 is a 100-seater, the CRJ-900 is significantly smaller.
|Quoting NW747-400 (Reply 1):|
The CR9 in its original design is a 90 seat jet which is why it is loosely compared to the E190. Due to many scope clauses within pilot contracts, the CR9 is frequently equipped in a 2 class 70-76 seat configuration which places the aircraft on a similar playing field with the E170/175.
