Looking forward to flying out of JFK on the A220-100. Looks great in the DL livery.

Anyone know what the seating config is? Not sure if it was announced. I searched the old CS100 thread, and didn't seem to be any definitely posts for number of F/W/Y

I don't recall seeing anything, but Bastian (just a few weeks ago, when he and AA's CEO were testing cheap seats for the WSJ, IIRC) declared Delta's standard for coach seat pitch is 31". (Delta seat maps show ranges beginning at 30" on many types already.)

Thanks for the info! Just the winglets to still be installed then on the outside, and perhaps the cabin fitting to still be done before its first flight?

Thanks for the video, I wondered how the planes were painted, and now see the numbers are under the white paint, and not over!

The CR200ís are truly the devilís spawn.
i have not seen a CR700 in a long time.
The CR900ís arenít as comfortable as the EMB175ís, but they arenít so bad overall.

Delta has released a plan to take down the CR2 seat count (departure seats per day) pretty significantly 2017-2023. 'Large RJ' seat count - CR7/CR9/E70/E75 - does not decline.

If DL uses sensible/passenger-friendly seat pitch this should be a (relatively) very comfortable plane with 18.5" coach seats.
