Anything newsworthy on the 1000 or the proposed 400X?
I didn't read any updates from Farnsborough.

First flight of the CRJ1000 still scheduled for sometime before the end of the summer. Nothing further (yet) on the Q400X.

BBD has a Regional Update for July on their website, with a pic of the prototype CRJ1000 in full paint. Looks nice and not outrageously long.

I noticed a full-page CRJ1000 ad in an av-mag last month, I hope more airlines will opt for it. Hope if flies soon too.



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

I think BBD's resources must be stretched with the CRJ1000, Lear 85, and now the all mighty CSeries. The Q400X must be in the cards somewhere as the Q200 and Q300 are no longer offered and that they are left with a single type Q Series model.

It may be a bit like the A and B narrowbody replacement dilemma. As long as ATR does not announce an all new family or a stretched ATR-72, BBD won't need to sweat it out with respect to a 90-100 seat Q400X for the immediate term. If ATR comes up with an all new design, you can be assured that BBD will only stretch the Q400, and that would still give BBD a competitive position in not allowing ATR with an early market entry.

Having said all that, I am certain that ATR are working on a plan to present to their board as they are single product company.

The CRJ1000 will be assembled at the current facility in Mirabel.
The CSeries will also be at Mirabel, but additional resources are probably going to be hired.
The Lear 85 will be assembled in Wichita.
The Q400X, if launched, would be assembled at Downsview.

If all the programs were concentrated at the same manufacturing facility then it would be a significant problem of additional resources. But production is spread amongst various facilities in different areas.

Thanks, but I was referring to Engineering resources, not manufacturing. Most manufacturing companies today have a great deal of manufacturing capacity, but limited Engineering resources.

Will the -1000 have larger pax windows? Can't stand them on the -200s.

The NexGens (700/9000/1000) all have larger windows. They were already moved up on the 700---or was the floor just lowered? Or both?

Slap me if I'm wrong.

No need to slap you, rather compliment you for being right, when the CRJ700 was developed they lowered the floor one inch and raised the window line 3 or 4 inches, so that the window placement is actually higher up on the CRJ700/900 than on B737/757 etc.

On the NextGen 700/900/1000 the window itself is 2 inches taller, and I believe that the window placement on the CRJ1000 will be better aligned with seats spaced at standard 31 inch pitch. Source: Bombardier.com

On the CRJ900 windows are misaligned with seats in the front cabin because the seating placement was moved 10 inches or so forward to allow space for that extra set of overwing exits.
