- United is ordering 50 CRJ-550s, which are CRJ-700s configured with 50 seats, including 10 F seats and a bar/snack area
All A320s will go from 12 F seats to 16
All A319s will go from 8 F seats to 12
21 767-300s will receive a premium configuration with 46 Polaris seats
This CRJ-550 should be interesting. UA says it's targeting it for routes under 900 miles like ORD-XNA, where premium demand is higher than in other places.
