United to add 4 seats to 500 regional jetliners

BLADE NEWS SERVICES

CHICAGO — United Airlines confirmed Friday that it will add four more seats to its regional jets, through the reconfiguration of cabins and the addition of thinner seats on about 500 planes that fly throughout North America.

On Friday, a spokesman confirmed details of a note posted on a popular online aviation blog that detailed a reconfiguration of the airline’s most popular regional jet, the CRJ700. The company plans to cut the size of the more-expensive and roomier Economy Plus section in half to 16 seats, while the number of seats in coach will rise to 48 from 28.
