Dont think it has been discussed yet: why such a juicy piece of market as Regional Jets is pretty much ignored by Boeing and Airbus. I am personally rather glad they stay away from it, as it allows other (smaller) manufacturers to exist, but still. It seems that most of the A/C's these days are RJ's (at least in North America), and both A and B are just sitting there, not even planning. your thoughts?

RJ is kind on the downturn right now because of fuel. I'll bet Boeing wishes they still had DeHavilland.

pardon my ignorance: had it ever?

this is rather interesting. usually, the MO of big corporation is to acquire/buy, and if it doesnt work out, then run into the ground and write off as a loss. here, from what i understand, Boeing actually let go/sold DeHavilland.

Still. being that Boeing and Airbus obviously have the resourses and potential to enter RJ market, but dont. what are the reasons? it seems that RJs would be selling much better than an estimated 300 of B747Adv frames.

Yup... Bought them in 1986 and sold them in 1992.
