Delta to be first flying new CRJ900 cabins

June 20, 2018
Written by Wings Staff
Delta Air Lines placed an order to buy 20 Bombardier CRJ900 regional jets and will become the launch customer for the regional aircraft's new cabin design. The order has a list price of around US$961 million, but airlines typically receive large discounts.

Bombardier's new Atmosphere cabin features larger overhead bins and washrooms along with mood lighting and increased cabin connectivity options.

Delta, based in Atlanta, GA, will take delivery of the dual-class aircraft with 70 seats in late 2018, replacing older aircraft models. The planes will fly under the Delta Connection brand.

Delta has a fleet of more than 450 regional aircraft, including 151 CRJ900s operated under several Delta Connection carriers.

Bombardier explains this is the second order for the new CRJ900 cabin in about a month, after American Airlines ordered 15 of the regional jets with options for 15 more planes.
