This would be the Burnelli RB-1 (aka Remington-Burnelli), based on the radiators.
First flight was June 1921, but the RB-1 did not fly commercially; it was damaged early in its career. Its successor, the RB-2, did fit the clues given and was similar looking, was built a couple of years later. None of Burnelli’s lifting body designs made it commercially, even though they did show some advantages, particularly as cargo carriers.
