Economical situation in Russia undermines their production potential. So, let's talk planes that could be produced upon order from an airline or a leasing company...
Tu-204 - Boeing757 lookalike
Tu-334 - (certification pending) an MD-95 cousin
IL-96 - an A340 lookalike
AN-140 - (not sure) - Fokker-50 or IPTN
IL-114 - Saab2000 is the closest relative, I suppose.

I also don't doscard the possibility that Tu-154M production could be still going on, but that's doubtful. Anyone got more fresh info on that?

As for Western airlines, well, I don't know any yet that have ordered Russian planes. However, Russian freighters are quite actively used by both Western and Eastern operators.

AirFoyle and SkyLink are some examples. It seems like they lease IL-76s, AN-124s and AN-12s, rather than buy them.

I don't think the Tu154M is still in production. I believe Iran Airtours (or something) bought the last half-produced 154's lying around. They assembled those, and that was the end. Well... That's what comes to mind when I think about the tu154. Not sure though...

Alexander, you mentioned it, but not as being in production: The An124. Is it still being built? I hope the plans of an An124 with RR fans and a honeywell cockpit will actually happen!!!

Now that I look at my nickname... The IL76 (mf) is still in production too, right?

...AN-124 "Ruslan" should be in production, too. Hmm.. I'm not very sure about the IL-76, though. According to Zmey Gorynich's post several month ago, even AN-225 "Mriya" was still in production, but in very small numbers!!!

I hope he notices this thread at clears up on IL-76...

as I have been told- they build one An-225 for 2 years, then sell it for BIG MONEY, selebrate for another 2 years and start building another one
