“Passengers are very happy with the aircraft. The SSJ100 is confirming its superior aerodynamics and outstanding performance. We are very proud of the new SSJ100: it is currently the only regional aircraft with a 5 abreast configuration enabling mainline comfort with reduced operating costs and the flexibility of a regional jet to be operated in small airports; the SSJ100 is a key choice for Interjet’s development plan focused on serving Mexico’s domestic mid-density routes as well as some short-haul international ones” says Jose Luis Garza, CEO Interjet.

The SSJ is an interesting aircraft. The fuel burn penalties for not being near your optimum altitude is horrendous! In standard config, full pax, 200NM alternate & 30mins hold, you still have about 4 tons to spare to your MLW... so it's a useful cargo hauler too. The downside is that the approach speed at MLW is about 147 knots (Vref 142 giving Vapp of 147 at no wind), this is why one needs 1600m as minimum runway to dispatch the plane into...
I talked to some of the crew at Sky Aviation here, their SSJ crew seem to love it,,,
When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !

Good news for the program, which IMO really needs to deliver more aircraft to airlines out there, to have more exposure to more customers and regions. Having a broad customer and aircraft base helps in discovering and troubleshooting issues - and the current 20ish aircraft is not exactly a large statistical base.

Quoting AM777LR (Reply 7):
Good for 4O! I can't wait to fly on one! Any chances they will start any new routes out of SNA with it?
SNA seems to me, to be to far for the SSJ100 even from GDL. 4O best International route for this airplane seems to be MEX-SAT on a double daily basis. The A320 has to much capacity and with FL and 5D on the route flying 73G and E190s or E145s.
I don't see what you're talking, from what I can see on the Sukhoi website, it's should have the legs to make it to the LA area from MEX and GDL. What about new routes to SNA? Like SDJ-SNA? They could offer AirTran some competition. http://www.scac.ru/en/aircraft/performance/2010/

Quoting KELPkid (Reply 14): Quoting Paolo92 (Reply 9):In the meanwhile the third SSJ for Interjet (XA-JLV) took off from Venice this afternoon and is going to arrive in Mexico on November 7.
Anyone know the ferry routes that they are using?
Skyliner aviation posted the following information about the ferry flight:

Don't know how this all shakes out, but perhaps performance out of SNA would provide hurdles at high weights?
Thanks, what was obvious was how wide and comfortable the cabin was, the aisle was wide enough for him to pass the service cart when going to the wc, it is 3.27m wide and the Cseries is 3.28m. They will establish a new comfort level for a 5 abreast short hauler.
The major difference between the SSJ and the Cseries will be fuel burn as the engines burn 15% more fuel, they have the spec of a CFM5-7B.
