My colleague and good friend, ATI US editor Lori Ranson, was in Salt Lake City this week to attend the annual Regional Airline Association (RAA) conference and exhibition.
Lori, who Twitters under @Ransonnote - and has broken a ton of stories from RAA this week, such as this gem from yesterday - was kind enough to act as roving reporter for RWG and take some great video of the inside of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) mock-up.
The man you see inside the mock-up is Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp director, marketing sales and marketing department Yugo Fukuhara. He talks about the MRJ's slim seats, new-design arm rests, windows and luggage bins. Here is one of his key quotes, and then check out the video below (shouldn't the Ransonnote be blogging? :)
"The last prototype of the new slim seat will be complete by end of this year."
