Delta (Comair) – CRJ-900 Vers. 3 (CR9) – Seat 4A
Notes: It’s nice to have a first class option on smaller, regional jets. While the seats are remarkably tighter than those you’d find on a larger jet, they’re still much roomier than you’ll find in the back. You get about an inch and a half of extra width over coach and 4 inches more legroom which for short hauls isn’t too bad. But if you’re not getting the upgrade for cheap (or free) I’d skip the extra cost.
Service is of standard short haul domestic on Delta. Pilllow, blanket, free granola bars, cookies or nuts and drinks. That’s about it. Only got one good shot of seat 4A which is on the “1” side of a 2-1 configuration which gives you the awesome advantage of having both a window and and aisle.
Summary: More like “coach plus” than first but just fine for standard short hauls. Like the “1” side of the 2-1 seating.
