United’s new CRJ-550 is the world’s first and only 50-seat regional aircraft offering first-class seats and amenities. Customers can enjoy a premium cabin experience on every leg of the journey — even the short ones — on routes from Chicago O’Hare. A route between New York/Newark and Washington, D.C. will launch early this year.
Welcome passengers and bags
With space for over 50 carry-on bags in the overhead compartments and carry-on cabinets, gate-checking is a thing of the past. Customers seated in United First® can enjoy a wide assortment of snacks and beverages from the self-serve refreshment center.
Relax with more legroom
The CRJ-550 has more overall legroom per seat than any other 50-seat aircraft flown by a U.S. airline. Travelers can relax and stay connected to work and entertainment during the flight with United Wi-FiSM and personal device entertainment.
