United Airlines has begun testing its first re-configured Bombardier CRJ700 aircraft into the new CRJ550 configuration, which features an all-new premium seating cabin with 10 First Class seats. This aircraft model will be the first triple-class 50 seat aircraft in the world, which will feature a new type certificate based on the CRJ700. (airwaysmag.com) 기타...

So the 550 is nothing more than an interior reconfig? Why a new type rating?

News to me.... Working very closely with the plane and have heard nothing about that... We have the same pilots flying the same plane... 1/2 of the planes will be the Same Serial Number with a Different Tail Number...

To clarify my comment, aside from the quote I posted above, I thought they were building new aircraft but I suppose it is just a interior reconfig.

With 100% authority..... The only thing that is changing on these a/c is the Interior and the Tail Number... The Tail number change is to put the A/C Tail Number and Serial Number in order, and believe me from a maintenance prospective it is very good thing... I also noted today that CRJ-550 is plastered onto the Gear doors and fuselage... There is no shame from the company on that one... A Blind man couldn't miss it.

Just a note... I did get the opportunity to step on the plane today, and it most certainly looks very very nice.... The new interior and paint job really stands out and much more room in the seats....

Why not call it what it is. It is CRJ700 Type3. CRJ 700 for the model. Call it type three because of the three seating sections. First, Premium Economy and Economy. It sounds more progressive. CRJ550 sounds like an older model when they have significantly improved the options for this aircraft.

It was Named by Bombardier.... It was there for a Dog and Pony show for the High End you know whats! I agree, that it should still be called a CRJ-700.... Dough.. Same everything, Same S/N, Same Flight Times (Airframes not Zero Timed).... I personally impressed with the paint job being so fresh.... Just hope it stays that way for a long time to come.... One unique feature there will be a self serve snack station on-board where you can get what you want.

The CRJ 550 looks hot. It looks fast when it's parked. And I agree that the new livery really gets your eye.

The CRJ is a real hot rod in the air as well... and only to be carrying 50 passengers.... It will be a real screamer!

When it banks it is really pronounced. It feels great feeling a little g in your seat. Flying into REA from YUL is great because of the no fly restriction over the Potomoc River. Its a great ride. Its the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
