With more Russian airlines buying Airbus and Boeing aircraft. Do the new Tupolev designs have a future. Cairo Air had operated Tu-204's at one point and a Cargo operation leased Tu-204c's. From what I remember reading they were pleased with the Tu-204c's and were considering leasing more or buying there own. However it appears even more Russian Airlines are opting for western built aircraft, although each year a few Tu-204 variants are sold. Is this because of a lack of support from the manufacturer, reliability issues and or performance issues. Is there a market for these newer Tupolev designs out side of Russia? Perhaps Iran, Libya Africa?

Believe this has been discussed before. Here's one link:

RE: Can Tupolev Be Sucessful In The Western World? (by RIX Jun 12 2005 in Civil Aviation)

The TU-334 may have a limited future in the West, but I'm not optimistic about the prospects the TU-204 and it's variants. Boeing and Airbus offer superb logistic support which the Russian manufacturers can't (at this time at least) match.
