Video: Flying United’s unique ultra-premium CRJ-550 regional jet in First Class

In this video we take another hour’s flight over the frozen north of the United States, this time from Detroit (DTW) to Newark (EWR) onboard United’s CRJ-550 regional jet in First Class. United has taken the CRJ-700 and removed a bunch of seats to create this new, very spacious regional offering.
There’s a big First and Economy Plus section, with just a few rows of regular economy seating, plus a big snack bar and most importantly, three large luggage compartments so nobody has to gate-check their bags again. If only all CRJs could be configured this way. We’re in seat 1A, a solo seat in First Class. For regional jets it doesn’t get much better than this. Join us.

In this video we take a ride on Etihad’s lovely 787-10 from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi on EY78. Along the way we can’t figure out how to get our connecting boarding pass at Schiphol Airport; we have a chat with the Captain before departure; we get some beautiful views of Holland on the climb out; we test out the Etihad Business Studio seat, service, food and entertainment options; and we enjoy a scenic sunset descent over Iran and the Gulf.

Video: How does SAS transatlantic business class stack up these days

In this video we take a 9+ hour flight onboard Scandinavian Airlines A330 business class from Stockholm (ARN) to Newark (EWR). SAS cut a lot of onboard service and all its long-haul out of Stockholm during the pandemic so it’s nice to see both things coming back, little by little.
