Is a plane with dimensions like an A320 and seating up to 160 a regional jet? (CS300). IMO not!

CS100 is a regional jet
CS300 is NOT

Even the CS100 has the dimensions of an A319 with a capacity of maximum 125 pax. This is close to the A318. I would not call any plane bigger than 110 seats maximum a regional jet. Just my opinion!

But what is a regional jet? Doesnt "regional" describe more the range than capacity? Isnt an A330 flying NY to BOS a regional jet? Is an E190 flying YYZ to PDX still a regional jet, at least in this case (5 hr flight!)? Maybe its better to make it depend on the maximum range of the aircraft.

What is a regional jet. There is no such defined term.

When I was a young boy in 1967, the Boeing 737 was introduced. Lufthansa was launch customer. They called it "City Jet".

So is the B737 a regional jet? At least the B737-100?

This was for marketing reasons.They called their 727-100 "Europa Jet" and their 707-300 "Intercontinental Jet". Now, if they had the A220 they would undoubtedly call it "Regional Jet".

Philosophical Question:
If you have more than 100 seats and you are branded as Airbus, are you still an RJ?

I have JUST realized how good your question is. I never really paid attention to that but I just looked at airbus website and found out that A220-300 is actually 38.4 meters long. That's 5 meters longer than A319. That's 70 cm longer than A320!!! And those aren't regional jets by any standard.

I think it's fair to say that the A220 is what we could call a crossover like a SUV type vehicle. It's likely to be very versatile depending on the operator when looking at what DL and B6 have in mind.

Was it ever referred as a regional jet? It's bigger than an Embraer 190/195 And it's often debated whether or not they are Regional jets.

No. Bombardier never called it a regional jet.

Am I the only one here old enough to remember the time when it was called BRJ-X (Bombardier Regional Jet eXpansion)? ... /brj-x.htm


BRJ-X was supposed to be smaller than 717?

As far as I understand, it was more or less the CS100 (oops, the A220-100).
