A320s right after ordering 10 brand new 734s?!? Thats a really stupid move.

There have been posts on this forum a while ago about 20+ order by Aeroflot for Airbuses. People were guessing whether that would be narrowbodies, namely A320 family. Widebodies are even more unlikely...

And when the heck do they plan to introduce Tu-204/Tu-214?

Read the last post of mine in the long thread about Aeroflot and Airbus. That should answer your question.

What's so stupid about A320s after 737-400s ? SAS ordered A321s shortly after putting the 737-800 in service. RAM has done the same. The A320 and 737-400 do not necessarily fly similar missions, particularly in terms of range although they may be considered competitors.

My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

This is Russia we are talking of here. Boeing has made MASSIVE, and I mean MASSIVE amounts of investment in Russia, thru "paying" for the first 3 Ilyushin Il-96Ms to be completed, and other projects.

SU will more than likely be going with 737NGs. Don't ask me why I say this, because if I tell you, I will have to kill you. You know, KGB tovarishch and all that.

Brissie_lions, do you mean that Boeing actually "sponsored" (or whatever word that is appropriate) the project of Ilyushin 96M? That's a wise move man!! Russian airliners need to be admired. Hopefully their new Tupolevs and Ilyushins will get approval by the western airlines! (And don't say they don't like them just because they're Russian...  )

Why buy an Ilyushin when you could buy an Airbus or Boeing???????

Airbus or Boeing widebodies would probably be way too much for SU's budget. Besides, they're supposed to support Russian manufacturers somehow, being one of the flag carriers of Russia.

And heck, IL-96Ms should be darn good planes!   Four engines, winglets, loads of headroom, Western avionics cockpit (isn't it?)...

Russian designs have traditionally been very solid and rugged (some would say over-engineered). Their low points were thirsty and unreliable engines, and electronics 20-30 years behind the times.

Now we have russian aircraft manufacturers who offer western engines and avionics, and Russian engine and electronics manufacturers have access to western technology (through license or joint ventures) to make their products more competitive as well.

It will take a long time before Tupolev, Ilyushin and the rest prove to the airlines and the flying public that their crappy reputaion is unfounded. I sincerely hope they meet with success - having only Boeing and Airbus around in the 100+ seat category is really getting boring.
