There is absolutely nothing "RJ", or "regional" about this airplane. The website even claims its based on the DC-9. :rolleyes: :banghead: :drool:

Maybe they should market it as the "NARJ" - North America Regional Jet

Just sickening. Sad part is there will be a line out the door of "brahs" that can't wait to get their hands on it for for current regional pay.

Any plane that is parked at a jetway should be flown by mainline.
