Bombardier Cancels MyAir's Order For 15 CanRJ1000

Bombardier has officially cancelled MyAir's order for the CanRJ1000:

http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2009/0...bombardier-myair-order-cancel.html

Cannot remember that an airline cancelled an order because of financial troubles of one of its customers, but I guess there is a reason for that. Certainly a blow for Bombardier as the CanRJ1000 orderbook is not too healthy (although it is of course a low-cost derivative).

Just to avoid confusion - my earlier thread opener with the original Bombardier press release was deleted because it did not contain a link. It did not provide any other material information than the stuff in the above linked article, but only somewhat more detailed background info.

(Friendly note for the Mods for future consideration: Bombardier emails out their presss releases as PDFs and not as a links. The PDFs can be copied and pasted, but not linked to).

I'm going to hazard a guess that MyAir was in breach of the contract on their end, leading to Bombardier coming to the conclusion that they would not be taking delivery of any of their remaining contracted planes.

Otherwise, I would think Bombardier would be liable for breach of contract themselves.

Good thing Air Nostrum ordered 20 more CRJ1000, so they can take over any MyAir frames already in production (as in metal cut and such). Would be nice to see some new customers too.

Any pics available of the first production CRJ1000 now doing test flights?

If I am not mistaken, we now have only two customers left for the CRJ1000:

Confirmed orders:
35 Air Nostrum
14 Brit Air

Options:
02 Brit Air
02 Adria Airways

Just to make a point is this aircraft a modern day BAC 1-11?

Sad news for the CRJ1000.

A bit of topic, but how fast can the CRJ1000 turn around? Less than 20 minutes? It is a pretty long plane.

100 seats 2+2 mean 25 or so rows - not more than a B737-700 or A319 that are standard stock of the LCCs. So I don't see a problem in that department.

So with a plane lighter than the good old DC-9-10 it should be an attractive plane. I fail to see why no more orders this plane.

Possibly why they didn't order the 717?

While heavier, the 737NG and A320 families are larger and therefore seem to offer lower CASM or more RASM, making them overall the better choice for operators.

I wonder how the economics look in a head to head of the 717 vs. CRJ-1000...

I think part of it, is that the E190 beat the CRJ1000 to the punch for many airlines looking for a 100 seater. If the CRJ1000 was out 3 or 4 years ago, then maybe we'd have seen a lot more orders for the type.

However, many LCC flights using 737s and A319/320s etc. park at remote stands with buses to/from the terminal, and board the aircraft using stairs at both the front and rear doors. That's not possible on a CRJ.
