Ok, here we go:

Flag carrier OAO Aeroflot (AFLT.RS) signed a contract to buy 30 95-seater aircraft to be built by the Russian Regional Jet consortium led by ZAO Sukhoi Civil Aviation for a total of $820 million. Deliveries will start in November 2008, Aeroflot and Sukhoi said in a joint statement

This is fantastic news, and as far as I am concerned, more significant than any 787 or A350 order. We should forget airbus and Boeing for once, after so many unrealised projects it looks as if the russian commercial aircraft industry is on the way up again.

That's good news for them, definitely. When we see this article again with "Aeroflot" replaced with "NorthWest" that'll be the time for the success party. Yeah, I know, but like my fellow long-suffering Seahawks fans I'm daring to dream this year.

It's not a done deal yet. I hear that Aeroflot shareholders are planning to block the approval because they think the An-148 is a better option.

Aeroflot actually has a press release on its website about the order as well. Only problem being that it is in Russian, so if you can read, go to aeroflot.ru. I really hope that this plane does well for aeroflot, and I could see them utilize on flights to eastern europe while leaving airbus frames for western european longer flights, and once the new longhaul aircraft are introduced, like the 787 or A350 then maybe there will be new N/American routes. What are the possibilities that SU would serve current SkyTeam hubs. Would it be more likely per se that SU fly to Detroit rather than ORD if they were considering to reinstall this route. I understand they fly into YYZ, but then again ORD and YZZ aren't Skyteam hubs. And what if NW bought RRJ frames. By the way, 30 frames for 820 million doesn't sound like that much. It comes to 27.3 million per aircraft. I had posted something about the RRJ earlier, and my question is how does the RRJ compare to Embraer products in terms of range? I would assume the range would be longer considering the purpose of the aircraft is to link smaller russian cities with the major airports.

Quoting Backfire (Reply 3):
It's not a done deal yet.

I have heard of good many deals and letters of intent announced by Aeroflot in the past years involving Russian or Ukranian aircraft. One of them involved an order for the TU-334 and maybe even the TU-204. What happened to these? I know there is a definite order for a number of the Il-96. I hope this order will stick.

The TU-334 is a nice looking aircraft perhaps intended to replace aging TU-134s, but no orders seem to even exist for this aircraft. Did SU's Airbus order simply displace the need for this aircraft? Looks to me though that these two aircraft would serve different market segments. Regional versus intra-European.

Just wondering...

Aeroflot has a penchant for the CIS "airliner of the month." Since it is 50% state controlled, they are subject to the political winds as well. After the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, as Russia has really no other way of punishing that country, the An-148 orders have become null and void. It is hard to know what, if anything, to make of all of the LOI and "deals" that are made, Until you see the plane in Aeroflot colors, don't count on anything they say. Two months from now you will see the India-Russia jet, two months after that some phantom deal with China will be made and that aircraft will be announced, etc...

Hjulicher, I can see NW running a 332 DTW-SVO, but I don't see SU running their aircraft between Detroit and Moscow
I hope SU / UA will start running ORD-SVO soon, a low-yield ethnic market perhaps, but one

What now?
