Hi Flying Tiger; no, didn't hear any of these. Surprised to see Eurowings going for the RJ-X, as it already has A319s and one would have thought that the A318 would have made more sense. Still, they know best.
One thing which does occur is that its becoming a very crowded market in the 80-100 seat area. You have the RJ-X, the Dornier Jet728/928 and the Embraer 190, plus the A318. As BAe/Avro seems to be the last into this market, I wonder are they rethinking it? Even if they aren't, I'm sure there is frenetic behind the scenes talking.
It does seem that the Dornier series is getting the upper hand and an ILFC deal will certainly strengthen its hand.
