It seems as though the production rate of the CRJ700/900 NextGen line is likely to be cut in the near future.

http://www.flightglobal.com/articles...ning-about-crj-production-cut.html

The only order comes from American Eagle in the form of a Letter of Intent for 22 CRJ-700's that they currently hold. With deliveries to SAS almost complete and only a handful of aircraft from Eurowings and SkyWest left to deliver, the order book has dried up.

Any indication on when the Supreme Court of Canada will rule on the fate of the Iraqi Airways nine CRJ900's that are currently in limbo and cannot be delivered?

Hopefully better days ahead for the CRJ!

Cheers,
Oliver

Please tell me this also means the end of the horrific idea called the CRJ-1000

To its credit, the later CRJs are much better than the CRJ-100/200s. Is it at all possible to convert them to later models, or is that too complicated?


Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)

Haven't they been released? I saw one on approach into BEY in May.

Gojet has i think 20 option they will be converting to orders soon, and with Mesa dwindling as a UA carrier, I'm sure there will be more orders from them to fill the void once UA puts the final nail in Mesa's coffing



The opinions I post are of mine and mine alone, not of the airline I work for.

Who's making 50 seat aircraft these days? Certainly there's nothing in the 30 seat range.

Backlog for the CRJ family stood at 116 as of 30 july. With not many new orders this year I can certainly understand such a decision. Even after the crisis I highly doubt we'll be seeing the orders for this a/c family that we've seen in the past. There will be some orders here and there and the CRJ1000 will keep the line alive a while longer, but nothing like during the days of regional-jet mania.

Other backlogs as per flightglobal:

E-jets 295
ARJ-21 55
MRJ 65
SSJ 55

SAS still holds around 15 options or so.

And I didn't thought LH had received all theirs?

Don't forget the CSeries, 50 + 50. The CS100 is basically about the same seating as the E195.
