New United aircraft coming to MLI for a limited time

November 10, 2022

For a limited time, United is helping MLI put the QC in quality and comfort with a new aircraft. The CRJ-550 first launched in 2019 and boasts first class, economy plus and economy options so you can travel comfortably. This new class of plane will be offered during the month of December for a newly restored 3rd daily option to Chicago-O’Hare with a 4 p.m. departure – perfect for business trips and visiting family and friends during the holidays.

Not only are there roomier seat options, there is more storage for carry-ons which means you may not need to check yours on the jet bridge.

The launch of this aircraft is part of United’s commitment to offering multi-cabin planes and upgrading their fleet throughout their network, including the regional level.

According to The Points Guy, “the CRJ550 is arguably the most comfortable regional jet in America, especially in first class.”

Quite an endorsement! While this plane is only scheduled to be at MLI in December, we are excited United has repositioned it for our passengers to enjoy and hope to see it return in the future. If and when it does, we will let you know.

Take a peek inside and book with United.
