Indeed-great news! Looking forward to the emergence of aircraft made by manufacturers outside the USA and the EU.
It would be interesting to see if eventually one would be able to rival Airbus and Boeing.
Quoting ENU (Thread starter): And, Russia's trade minister claims that a French airline will be the next buyer of the SSJ... Any guesses?
If a French airline buys this, it would be the ultimate act of irony given the whole France-Airbus dynamic. But why not?

If Armavia is supposed to get the first plane, and their rep is saying "early 2010" for delivery, how can Aeroflot take delivery in December 2009? Also, will either airline get the Pininfarina interior or are both getting the bare-bones ones?

total pipe dream... and not expecting it to ever be a reality... but it would be really cool, personally, if American Airlines ordered these to fill the gap long vacated by the F100 & 717's retirement. Arpey has long stated they wanted/needed another aircraft in that size range.. and this, being associated remotely with Boeing for help, would by the closest aircraft to fit into the Gentleman's Agreement... but, alas... I'm def. not going to hold my breath...
For a russian airliner... this plane finally has some nice curves and some grace in the air... not just a flying tank.

The Superjet would follow on nicely (marketing wise)from the DC9 Super 80...

Add Brazil and Canada......
And China...and Japan... the regional jet market is getting extremely crowded, a bit like the regional prop market in the late 80s...Russia certainly has a large enough of a domestic market to support the SSJ, so hopefully it will be a success.

The similar topic was on the forum just few days ago, but I failed to find it through the search engine. Well, let me put some light on what's is being discussed around the Superjet.
The first serial a/c 95007 will be delivered to Armavia.
Quoting ENU (Thread starter): Other news is that the new airline Rosavia will take the ten aircraft ordered by the now defunct AirUnion.
That is true, Sukhoi is currently in talks with Rosavia. Meanwhile, the order might be more than just 10 ships.
Quoting ENU (Thread starter): Russia's trade minister claims that a French airline will be the next buyer of the SSJ.
I'm very surprised this comes from Russian minister. Superjet International takes care about SSJ100 sales in France, so I would expect such info from italian minister. As for the matter of the rumour, I do not have even a wild guess. I'd love this to be Air France!
Quoting Afay1 (Reply 2): will either airline get the Pininfarina interior or are both getting the bare-bones ones?
Both will be equipped with interior produced by B/E Aerospace. Pininfarina interior at the preliminary studies stage and won't be produced in the nearest year or even two. Most probably Pininfarina interior will be offered to Western customers only.
Well... it is. Aeroflot had the first delivery agreement, but it seems like it won't be the first who gets the aircraft. Maybe Sukhoi will deliver aircraft to both starting customers at the same day, at least have a commemorative ceremony.
It's under study, the plane could be stretched to 110-130 seats with the same engines and wing. If the SSJ-95 sells decently, the stretch will happen. In fact, I see it having more chances than the SSJ-75 shrink version.

Are there any specs about it's economy, technical and electrical integrity, effectiveness in design, worldwide net of parts / maintenance availabilitym, etc in comparison to costs and competitors? I know that many parts and systems are of western production ... but how you make them work together is what counts.

Which airlines that ordered the SSJ actually went bust? Dalavia (6+4) and AiRUnion (15)? I believe latter ordered their SSJ through a lessor?
Quoting R2rho (Reply 13): In fact, I see it having more chances than the SSJ-75 shrink version.
SuperJet said that it is taking a hard look at its original plan to build a 75-seat regional jet and likely will go for an aircraft in the 100/115-seat range to complement the existing 95-passenger SSJ 100 platform.
Quoting EYKD (Reply 10): The first serial a/c 95007 will be delivered to Armavia.
Indeed, first delivery of the SSJ 100 is still on schedule for the end of 2009 to Armavia, which has two firm and two conditional orders. First delivery to launch customer Aeroflot, which has 30 firm orders, is expected shortly thereafter.

Quoting TDubJFK (Reply 21): Are you saying that forums like this one are only here for everyone to politely agree with each other on everything?
Sure i didn't say so, but you give your opinion like stating a fact. Not everybody thinks that the Tu154 is "an extremely ugly, clumsy, lumpy plane." as you can see by the comments above. But let's get back to topic.
Anybody has more information about the order made by 3Y (Kartika Airlines) for 15 (+15 options) 100-95B?
