The Sukhoi Superjet 100 adds a potential new customer:

Indonesian carrier Kartika Airlines has tentatively agreed to become the Asian launch customer for the Sukhoi Superjet 100, with a potential order for up to 30 of the type. Sukhoi's civil aircraft division says the Jakarta-based carrier has signed a heads of agreement for 15 firm Superjets plus 15 options. Deliveries of the PowerJet SaM146-powered regional aircraft will begin in 2011.

Good news. It also seems that the certification tests are now proceeding according to schedule.

I think they'll sell a lot of them to countries in Asia, Africa and South America. Good thing for us.
Any news about the "Icelandair order"?

They'll buy a hundred....

The SJ-100 has an interesting niche. I'm curious to see how it does. Typically in a recession, there is less premium flying and thus a trend back to hubbing. However... its a new lower operating cost airframe and thus might keep alive some routes.

As already noted in previous 'Superjet' threads, its going to come down to their service and support. If it matches Embraer's, they'll sell. If not...  no
