Tulsa was chosen as one of the first cities in the world to offer service on United Airlines Bombardier CRJ-550 to Chicago. United saw a need for travelers to have the option to travel first-class from Tulsa to their final destination. Believing better service is more important to customers than the number of seats offered, United came up with an innovative solution that is sure to please every traveler. They took a 70-seat airplane and redesigned it with 50-seats giving more overall legroom per seat than any other 50-seat U.S. aircraft ... and it offers much nicer amenities.

The roomy first class cabin features a self-serve refreshment center for the first class flier. There are additional closets and space for all carry-ons. Nick Depner, regional director for Midwest & Canada Sales explained, “This deletes the pain point of storage, bag delivery and waiting,” for your bag.

The Bombardier CRJ-550 will average four daily flights to Chicago and new locations will be added in the near future. When booking you can look at the "details" to be sure it’s the CRJ-550. 

If you’re looking for a luxury spa or weekend getaway, consider flying in style on the Bombardier CRJ-550 to Chicago and relaxing at the Langham Hotel.
