A small jet with ample space
It was the Canadair regional jets (CRJ) that got Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier recognized as a specialist for regional passenger traffic. It started building this series back in the early 1990s. The CRJ700 was developed toward the turn of the century. With the Lufthansa cabin layout it can carry up to 70 passengers. Although the earlier Canadair aircraft had a reputation for fuel economy, the CRJ700 has significantly lower fuel consumption and still gives passengers more room.
