They are called "90's" because they are certified to 90 seats even though they are usually configured with less.

Smart pilots have scope clauses which are based on certified seats and MGTOW, not just installed seats.

A 90-seater configured with 76 seats and a first class cabin generates more revenue than one with 90 coach seats (in the proper market).
