Air Berlin is in early studies for a regional jets seating 100 seats.
They speak about E190 and Superjet100 , but no words about C Series.

Since they have some money in Nicky , probably they will go E190 for fleet communality.

I must say sometimes i am thinking at Air Berlin as a flying musee , with so many types they (and will) operate ! A la SAS !

Superjet 100!!!!!

I bet my money they are not going to buy them, never ever,

Embraer family is a very nice and already in operation. Emb170-190.

CSeries......................endless story,

Although I see the Embraer as more likely (unless they can wait for the Cseries), the fact that they have seriously taken a look at the Superjet is very good news for this program, I wonder if there'll be any surprise at Le Bourget this year...

I bet the Superjet100 with its better economics will win this one.... Air Berlin is a leisure airline, passengers dont care about brands..



Next trip : DUB-AUH-CGK-DPS-KUL-AUH-CDG-ORK :-)

If the Sukhoi SSJ is having better economics then the Embraer, and taking in mind the price to purchase (I imagine the SSJ is cheaper to get then the Embraer), AB might decide to take the Russian beauty. I wonder though how popular the SSJ will be on the secondhand market in a few years. I doubt that many Western operators are willing to take over such aircraft.

My bett is that within the next decade NO western airline will buy and or operate the SuperJet 100. Heck I even will put my money where my mouth is should that ever happen!

You don't know about the hysteria of the uninformed Joe Sixpack, who is AB's leisure-oriented bread and butter customer, when it comes to aircraft models from "unsafe countries".

There will be no Russian or Chinese regional jet in a German airline fleet for the foreseeable future.

IF (sic!!) they are cheaper to fly, wich I doubt .... as soon as it goes to system design, international parts network, maintenance, etc ... I'm sure the costs will be considerably higher than with the established manufacturers.

Few people in the western world drive a Lada for a similar cause!

Interesting that the CRJ1000 is not mentioned as a potential candidate. Air Berlin already has a BBD product, Q400, so that should make it easier to order more from them.

The CRJ1000 will supposedly be more economical than the E190 and three other European airlines have ordered it already, so the maintenance infrastructure will be available soon too.



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

It would be fantastic to see the Superjet in Europe - tbh it doesn't look particularly 'Russian', as long as the signs are in German/English i very much doubt whether there will be any 'brand' issues as the majority of people won't be able to tell!


above us is only sky

It could be much better plane, much better economic...........................and all you want

but the public image of Air Berling is prizeless, and unfortunately they are not good for it.

I have flown IL-62, Yak-42, An-24, Il-18 and I´m pilot and I know they are safe enough but not everybody has the same opinion when we talk about Russian airplanes, they have a very bag reputation, so this is the real problem, even some insurance companies do not want to work with them.

Well, pay up!  Wink

There are two western companies who have ordered the Sukhoi. Itali Airlines have ordered 10+10 Superjet 100-95's, for EIS 2010 and AMA Group from Switzerland ordered 5 100-95's in a VIP configuration for EIS 2011...

Cheers!  wave

The 190 would look great in AB's colours, whats the seating capacity of the Sukhoi aircraft?
