Mitsubishi talks about a stretched MRJ, http://www.flightglobal.com/articles...or-up-to-112-seat-mrj-stretch.html
I wonder if Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer will be outcompeted with this plane?

Isn't that what the Bombardier C Series is all about?

Please just don't put those stupid MU2 engines on it, or a variation of it.

Keeps on looking more and more like an E190/195 every day!  duck

All the planes look the same these days. Its getting boring. Low tail, engines under the wings, pointy nose, 70-100 seats.

With a 2x2 cross section, there's only so far you can go...112 is defintely the maximum. This means:

Potentially a threat to the E-Jets, as it should be more efficient with the GTF's under the wing, and would cover more seats - 70 to 112.

Some threat to CSeries, as it would compete in the 110 seat range. Could be an option for those who see the CSeries as slightly too big.

At 112 seats, it doesn't invade A&B's turf, so no threat to them.

Looks like the Superjet may get a stretch too (and at 2x3 cross section, its possibilities are much larger), so we may see a very crowded market of regional jets covering the 70-130 seat range. Let's see how many of them survive....

Rather then Mitsubishi create a competitor to the 737, I expect them to take a major risk-sharing role in the 737 replacement. They build the wings for the 787, so I could certainly see them doing the same for the 737RS.

Quoting R2rho (Reply 5):

The E195 can have up to 122 seats.



But I really wonder why they limit the MRJ90 to 96 seats. Another row would certainly be useful.



Exceptions confirm the rule.

Maybe because of the scope clause in many ALPA contracts.
