The 25 CRJ-700 aircraft are equipped with a premium cabin. Working with the plane's manufacturer, Bombardier, the airline designed the cabin's custom leather seating, including four-way adjustable headrests, ergonomically-contoured back and seat cushions and an articulated seat bottom, enabling passengers to recline with less impact on the legroom of passengers seated behind them. Premium Baggage service for First Class customers expedite their checked bags to baggage claim, following landing.
