Canadair CL-600 Regional Jet CRJ-440LR

Sat Dec 16, 2006 1:43 am

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.

What the difference from the CRJ200's?

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.

Yup... they just removed the seats and ad in a bigger closet. Comair has a few as well....

THe 440LR's do not exist anymore. The cabinets have been removed and replaced with seats... thus we have all 200LR's now.

In the same fashion, Jazz has CRJ-705s, which are 900s certified to 75 seats for scope purposes. The extra room allows for J class and better legroom.

Why didnt they use the extra space for more legroom?
Takeoffs are optional; landings are mandatory.

Because you might actually enjoy being on an RJ and there is No Way anyone at mainline corporate would want that. = )

I guess that's why NW dumped ELP...they didn't want their pax to be comfy on the 4 hour hop from MSP to ELP. I always wondered why MSP-RAP got an A319 while they threw a Barbie Jet at ELP  irked

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.
