Mesa Airlines CRJ900
Mesa Airlines operates Bombardier CRJ900 regional jets for US Airways under the US Airways Express brand name. Previously Mesa Airlines operated CRJ900 jets for America West and remained a operator of CRJ900 aircraft for US Airways after the merger of America West and US Airways. These aircraft were operated under the Freedom Airlines subsidiary that Mesa had. Mesa Airlines CRJ900 jets were also operated for Delta under Freedom Airlines, until Delta canceled their contract with Mesa in 2008. These CRJ900s were owned by Delta and not Mesa.
Currently Mesa Airlines CRJ900 regional jets are operated out of US Airways hubs in Phoenix, Arizona (ICAO: KPHX) and Charlotte, North Carolina (ICAO: KCLT). The Mesa CRJ900s are configured with 79 seats total. There is a first class section that has 9 seats located at the front and 70 economy class seats inside the Mesa Airlines CRJ900.
