It's no secret that the North American market has been quite fond of the DC-9/MD-80/90/717, and it is also no secret that China will try to enter this market with the C919. With China's eyes on North America, do you think it will try to push the ARJ21 in the market, as well? There are some niche markets where ageing -9s/-80s are currently running that an ARJ21 would fit quite well in, but will the airlines bite?

How about for Hawaiian - to augment eventually replace the 717 fleet.
Their planes are relatively young - 10 years - however the cycles will eventually catch up with them.

IIRC, Mesa Air Group was interested in the ARJ21 several years ago.

Kunpeng (which was once part-owned by YV) even placed an order for the ARJ21. Not sure if it still stands.
