US Airways announced last month that it finished installing first-class sections on 110 US Airways Express Embraer E170/175s and Bombardier CRJ700/900s. With the addition of first-class sections on regional partners PSA, Mesa Air Group and Republic Airways, US Airways now offers same-class service to more than 85 destinations. The company began installing the two-by-one seating configurations on its Express aircraft in September and completed all aircraft in mid-December. All four aircraft types now carry nine first-class seats, with a 37-inch pitch in both Embraer types and CRJ700s, while the CRJ900s offer a 38-inch pitch. Seating capacity in the CRJ700s is now 67, while the CRJ900s hold 79 seats, the E170s 69 seats and the E175s 80 seats.
