Delta Chooses CRJ900s

 - January 23, 2007, 10:35 AM

Delta Air Lines last month signed a letter of intent with Bombardier to acquire as many as 60 CRJ900s to deploy with its Delta Connection regional affiliates from Atlanta, Cincinnati, Salt Lake City and New York. A firm order, still subject to bankruptcy court approval, would call for 30 of the airplanes in a two-class, 76-seat configuration, and likely accompany an option for another 30 airplanes. Deliveries would occur between September this year and February 2010, but Delta hasn’t yet revealed which of its regional affiliates have won the rights to the airplanes.
