IMHO, you can't compare the CRJ & ERJ cabins. CRJ is much more cramped.
Flown a lot on TUI fly's ERJ190 and pretty happy about it :-)
But they are both "Regional Jet" ;). I just wanted to show that some regional Jets, have huge capability, including the CRJ-900LR (Range: 3,660 km https://www.adria.si/en/flights-and-des ... &icdshow=1). By air Charleroi Oujda it's 1.825,16 km https://www.distance.to/Charleroi,BEL/O ... -Angad,MAR. Probably the loads, for this day, did not require the use of a B737-800. So probably better to lease a CRJ-900LR almost full, that a B737-800 almost empty.

It's like when some people say that jet aircraft are always better than turboprop aircraft (ATR, Q400). Because for many people (including avgeek) turboprop aircraft means old aircraft or not reliable aircraft (in French vieux coucou). In both cases, many people (including avgeek) underestimate the huge capability of Regional aircraft.

Airlines make also money, because they use the right aircraft on such a market. As always i say it, Airlines order aircraft not only to satisfy passengers or avgeeks, but firstly to meet its needs

Yup. Only avgeeks care about the plane they'll have on their flight.
And only avgeeks believe passengers care about it...

I made some mistakes. Nordica CRJ-900 are ER version not LR.

ER version: 2 500 Km on Nordica website https://www.nordica.ee/en/about-the-company/fleet/

Bombardier website: 2 871km, for CRJ-900, but they don't specify the version. http://commercialaircraft.bombardier.co ... crj-series

Based on Bombardier website, a CRJ-900NG / ER / LR can fly from Paris to Moscow (here from Orly to Sheremetyevo) https://www.distance.to/Orly-Internatio ... Moscow,RUS

Or from Barcelona to Helsinki https://www.distance.to/Barcelona-El-Pr ... irport,FIN

SmartLynx Airlines (a Latvian/Estonian airline from which TUI fly Belgium is wet-leasing more than a handful of aircraft this summer) is to be purchased by FZE Procyon (UAE), which is owned by Gediminas Ziemelis, the founder and owner of Avia Solutions Group (Lithuania).

Do you follow? :D

Yup. FZE Procyon and Avia Solutions Group have the same owner, who is Gediminas Ziemelis, and FZE Proycon is going to purchase SmartLynx :P
