Bombardier CRJ-900 Next Gen

I took a Bombardier CRJ-900 from Detroit to St. Louis way back in 2010 in a Delta Connections flight.
The CRJ-900 Next Gen is a stretched version of the CRJ-700 regional airliner. Longer by about 7 meters (length of the -900 is 39.13 meters), it can seat up to 90 passengers. This particular Scandinavian Airlines aircraft can seat 86, and has a range of 2,104 miles. [1]
