The only oders to date for this new Avro Regional Jet
has been Druk Air (RJX-85). You may be also aware that Cityflyer (UK) has placed six options for the RJX-100. But who are likely to be the next customers for
this aircraft?
Cityjet?
Meridiana?
Air Wisconsin?

This segment is looking really crowded with Bombardier, Embraer, Dornier and Avro.

British European?
They seem to be expanding quickly and already have alot of BAe 146/ Avro RJs, so they'd probably go with the RJX if they wanted something bigger.

I would think that Englandair's fave airline, British European, will go for some and possibly British Regional Airlines, but this is very doubtful.

SN wanted to buy the RJX to replace the DAT's BAe146. But no more cash ...

Maybe Aegean is going to buy the new Avro RJX, as they already operate Avro a/c´s! Aegean is expanding their route network really fast. A strong competitor for OA on domestic routes (and maybe in near future also on international flights?).

Air Nostrum, a regional carrier for Iberia, is supposed to have ordered some

Where did you hear that Air Nostrum has ordered some? Only last year Air Nostrum has signed for a couple of CRJ900, a RJ-X100-sized aircraft.

Aegean isn´t likely to order the RJ-X. They said that they don´t want to maintain a nearly similar aircraft but two completely different engiones.

With the better economics and overall newer design of the CRJ-700/900 twinjet, the four engined Avro RJ is likely sending out its death knell with the new RJX's. I don't see them getting many new orders, unless AI(R) sells out to Airbus, which would make for a very interesting situation...

Maybe Qantas Airlink to replace the old and much-maligned 146s. That being said, some people have spoken of 717s or CRJs as possible replacements.
