The 10-year anniversary of the introduction of the regional jet was celebrated Wednesday at the DeltaElite terminal at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Participants said the plane has revolutionized the commercial airline industry and will be crucial to its recovery from the post-Sept. 11 slump.

Atlantic Southeast Airlines was presented with its 100th regional jet. Through its ownership of Comair and ASA, and partnerships with three other regional airlines, Delta oversees the world's largest fleet of regional jets. Comair alone now has 143 of the jets.
